The research, performed at The Whiteley Clinic and the University of Surrey, looked at exactly how one of the new treatments for varicose veins actually works.

As with many of the new treatments for varicose veins, MOCA has been shown to give good results in clinical studies – but as with all new techniques for varicose veins there are failures.

By performing research such as this. Mark Whiteley and his team can understand how the technique works on the vein itself, so that they can make adjustments to improve the outcomes for their patients. The key to excellence is research and understanding.

This project is one of many research studies that are being performed between the The Whiteley Clinic and the University of Surrey.

This partnership has already produced one PhD this year. Other PhD students are going through this process, bringing new knowledge to the world of varicose veins.

This prize winning research into new treatments for varicose veins is being followed by further joint projects. All of this work will translate to better treatment for varicose veins patients in the future.
