Pelvic Congestion in The Telegraph

by – September 2, 2015

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome affects many women – but is often ignored by doctors. Many either do not know about it, or do not know how to treat it.

The Telegraph has published an article on this here: Telegraph article

The cause of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS) is varicose veins in the pelvis.

The Whiteley Clinic has been specializing in the investigation and treatment of pelvic varicose veins since 2000.

Treating Pelvic Congestion:

The most important step to treating pelvic congestion is to get the diagnosis right. Research from The Whiteley Clinic has shown that this is best done by Transvaginal Duplex Ultrasound – NOT MRI, CT or Venography (click here to see research).

Once the scan has been performed we can then close the veins under local anaesthetic using an X-ray technique called “pelvic vein embolisation“.

Our latest research has shown that this is effective even in the long term (see our research here).


Specialist Pelvic Vein Centre:

The Whiteley Clinic is internationally known as a specialist varicose vein and vein centre.

In our Bond Street Clinic, London, we have our specialist pelvic vein centre.

The “Gold Standard” transvaginal scans can be performed in London or our other clinics in Guildford, Bristol, East Grinstead and Birmingham. But the embolisation treatment is currently based in our specialist unit in London.
