Dr Goode grew up in Sandiacre, Nottingham and went to school at Trent College, Long Eaton completing his GCSEs and A Levels here. Dr Goode qualified in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Leicester Medical School in 2001 (MBChB).

He then went onto complete a Doctorate in Philosophy (PhD) in Vascular Surgery at the University of Nottingham in 2010.  It was during this period of research that Stephen gained his early experience in the treatment of varicose veins both using the older method of open surgical treatment and newer endovenous methods helping to pioneer these methodology through multiple award winning presentations and abstract conference publications. From this period of extensive research Stephen published a number of significant articles on varicose vein research which have been highly cited and have provided significant data to the literature on endovenous methodology and helped to guide the current management of varicose veins as it is today. In 2008 Dr Goode won a highly prestigious Research Fellowship to the Royal College of Surgeons for his research work and held this award for 1 year.

Dr Goode completed his Radiology training on the Sheffield Radiology training scheme, gaining Fellowship to the Royal College of Radiologists in 2011.

His interests also include peripheral vascular disease, uterine fibroid embolization, varicocoele embolization and endovascular treatment of venous diseases including pelvic venous congestion syndrome, deep venous thrombosis, and venous stenting procedures for chronic venous occlusive disease. All the interventions that Dr Goode performs everyday are minimally invasive image guided procedures under local anaesthetic (with occasional GA cases) and he is an expert in performing these procedures.

Dr Goode continued his endovenous training with Veincentre clinics in 2017 before starting work with Veincentre at the Nottingham clinic.
