Vascular Surgeon

Dr. Guillaume Stalnikiewicz

Honorary Senior Lecturer at The College of Phlebology


Short Biography

At almost 50 years old, he reflects on his upbringing in the north of France, where his father was a dedicated family doctor. Despite rarely seeing his father, the taste for medicine took hold of him, driven by a powerful desire to help others. This passion, akin to a contagious virus, also infected his sister, leading them both to pursue careers in medicine. His sister is now an ophthalmologist, while he chose vascular medicine, drawn by his specific interest in technical medicine and inspired by his revered mentor, Professor Charles Proye, who always encouraged them to look ahead.

He completed his studies in Lille, and after additional training in phlebology, he opened his private practice in 2006. He quickly embraced the early developments in laser technology, confident in its future impact. This forward-looking approach has continued to define his career. For him, medicine is far more than a personal achievement; it represents a noble and attentive way of being and interacting with others.

Modern advancements in phlebology have transformed the field, offering relief and safety where there was once weariness and discouragement for both doctors and patients. He finds great satisfaction in witnessing and contributing to the complete transformation of medical practice. Balancing his professional commitment is his lifelong passion for music, and he enjoys sharing a good old blues on the piano or guitar, seeing it as another form of medicine.

In January 2023 Dr. Guillaume Stalnikiewicz was awarded an Honorary Senior Lecturer at The College of Phlebology.

Since 2013, I decided to put these skills at the service of the training of young doctors in order to help them to acquire in the best conditions the technical gestures of the modern phlebology based on a solid knowledge of hemodynamics.
