This 84 year old lady has been admitted to Accident and Emergency on 2 separate occasions, bleeding from her left foot ulcer. One of these hospital departments is in a teaching hospital!
On each occasion, the bleeding was stopped and the patient discharged home with compression stockings. She was not offered any treatment to cure her or to stop it happening again.
The ulcer became so painful that she couldn’t wear shoes and found it hard to walk. Her GP took a biopsy which made the ulcer worse.
Fortunately the lady heard about The Whiteley Clinic and The Whiteley Protocol® from a friend and came for an extended duplex ultrasound scan 6 weeks ago.
The scan showed “hidden varicose veins” which were treated 4 weeks ago by local anaesthetic EVLT (endovenous laser therapy) and TRLOP (Transluminal Occlusion of Perforators) which was invented by Prof Mark Whiteley
Four weeks later, the ulcer is almost healed, she can wear shoes again and walk well – and has even managed to return to playing golf again.
