Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS) has been featured on the BBC Website.

20 Years ago The Whiteley Clinic started treating patients with PCS.

In that time, we have published many research papers through our PCS research program.

Our patients have been featured in many newspaper articles – examples below:

Because of his expertise in PCS, Mark Whiteley was the only UK doctor invited to sit on the committee writing the UIP international guidelines for PCS.

Pelvic Congestion is not just Ovarian Veins:

One of the problems with doctors who are new to PCS is that they just concentrate on the Ovarian veins when treating PCS. Several studies from The Whiteley Clinic show that about 96% of women with PCS also have Internal iliac veins that need treatment.

Because these are more difficult to treat, they are often left untreated by those with less experience.

 

In addition, pelvic congestion affects women before having children, post-menopausal women and even men. Basically, anyone with pelvic veins can have PCS.

For more information about PCS see the book:
