Pelvic vein embolisation can be a pelvic pain cure when pelvic pain is secondary to pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS). Pelvic pain due to pelvic congestions syndrome (PCS) is thought to affect between 500,000 and 1.5 million women in the UK.
A recent study performed through The Whiteley Clinic and Boston scientific, and presented to the all-party group on women’s health, showed that between 13 and 40% of women going to Gynaecology out-patients with pelvic pain actually had pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS).
The testimonial above was left as a review on Google. It is one of a great many testimonials from patients who have had life-changing treatment for pelvic pain due to pelvic congestion syndrome at The Whiteley Clinic.
Pelvic congestion is caused by varicose veins of the pelvis. Unfortunately, a great many obstetricians and gynaecologists do not recognise this condition yet. As such a great many women with pelvic congestion syndrome do not get a diagnosis and therefore do not get treatment.
The Whiteley Clinic has specialised in this area now for almost 20 years. Judy Holdstock of the Whiteley clinic developed the transvaginal duplex ultrasound scan using the Holdstock protocol which has become the gold standard investigation for this condition.
Our expert radiologists have refined the technique of treatment to be a walk in, walk out local anaesthetic treatment performed in our Bond Street clinic. We have recently published our results showing that this treatment is safe and effective.
