Join us for the free veins live event online on 23 April 2020 and “ask the expert”.
During the Covid-19 lockdown, reduced mobility and exercise can exacerbate or even cause some venous conditions.
Although many people think that varicose veins are “only cosmetic” this is not always true. There are several conditions that are urgent if not emergencies such as:
In addition, there are now a host of new treatments. Whereas many people will know about radiofrequency and endovenous laser, few people know about the latest techniques.
These include endovenous microwave (as popularised by DJ Chris Evans) as well as the revolutionary new HIFU Echotherapy (Sonovein) treatment. Both were introduced into the UK by Prof Mark Whiteley and his team. They are currently exclusively available in the UK at The Whiteley Clinic.
HIFU is an outpatient treatment that does not even need an operating theatre!
The treatment device is placed on the skin. Ultrasound passes through the leg tissue, focused onto the source of the varicose veins, permanently treating the problem veins.
In this time of concern about infections, this sort of totally non-invasive treatment is becoming very popular in many aspects of medicine.
This online event will start at 7:30 pm on Thursday 23rd April. The information in this presentation is aimed at the public rather than health care professionals.
Prof Mark Whiteley will go through the very basics of venous disease, showing how veins work and what goes wrong with them. He will then explain the new vein treatments.
Members of the public will be able to join through their computers, iPads, tablets or any mobile phone connected to the Internet.
Anyone can ask Prof Whiteley questions online, merely by typing their question into the chat section.
20:00-20:05 Break for clap for the NHS
