Alice Whiteley presented her research into foam sclerotherapy for varicose veins treatment. Alice was one of three The Whiteley Clinic summer research fellows in 2014.

Her research showed how foam sclerotherapy should be made to work optimally. It also showed which needles should and should not be used to inject it.

Her father, Prof Mark Whiteley, made it a Whiteley Family double. Mark presented research that he performed with Tim Fernandez-Hart from The Whiteley Clinic.

Tim has made a mathematical model to show how veins change with different treatment catheters. This showed that some of the current radiofrequency and  laser ablation fibres are sub-optimal.

Varicose veins should be treated with endovenous thermoablaion treatment. This is now NICE Guidelines (https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/cg168/chapter/1-recommendations#information-for-people-with-varicose-veins).

How New Varicose Veins Research Changes The Whiteley Protocol™

The Whiteley Protocol™ has been shown to give excellent results. Not only do patients regularly give The Whiteley Clinic excellent on our patient satisfaction questionnaire, but also our research and audits show our technical excellence.

It is only by continually performing new varicose veins research and then introducing this research into The Whiteley Protocol™, that we can be sure that our patients get the benefits of our research.
