Dr Chris Rogan
Interventional Radiologist
The Manse clinic is very privileged in that we have the opportunity for collaboration with Dr Chris Rogan, interventional radiologist. The Manse and Dr Chris are working towards combining 2 fields of medicine, aesthetics and radiology with the purpose of improving safety and outcomes in aesthetic medicine.
 
Dr Chris has over 15 years experience in minimally invasive procedures, having undertaken specialist training both in Australia and the UK.  
Dr Chris became interested in aesthetic medicine after working on patients with varicose veins/venous disease and utilising antiwrinkle injections initially for medical applications in muscular spasm.
 
Chris’s belief is that patients should be offered a progressive approach which begins with lifestyle changes, progressing to medications or minimally invasive approaches like injections and needle based procedures before considering invasive surgery. This approach can avoid recovery downtime and complications associated with invasive surgery. 
 
Chris is currently the codirector of interventional radiology at Royal Prince Alfred hospital, where he uses cutting edge image guided minimally invasive techniques to manage conditions that would otherwise require major surgery. He is interested in applying image guidance such as ultrasound to increase the accuracy and safety profile of aesthetic procedures and in treating vein disease like varicose veins using a minimally invasive approach.
