International EVLT Training Academy since Aug 2012

The Whiteley Clinic has been the Angiodynamics International EVLT Training Academy since August 2012. Since this time, 14 courses have been held in Guildford and several others have been held at international medical meetings – including Glasgow, Paris and Romania.

This is one of the many ways that The Whiteley Clinic spreads the results of its research to other vein surgeons throughout the world.

Dedicated to excellence in the treatment of varicose veins and associated conditions, Prof Mark Whiteley and his team are determined to continue to teach the very best understanding and techniques to all doctors who come on the course.

All doctors and nurses who attend the course are given a copy of the book: “Understanding Venous Reflux – The Cause of Varicose Veins and Venous Leg Ulcers“.
