Prof Mark Whiteley is featured as Top Doctor for Veins in the Beauty and Cosmetic Surgery Guide 2019.
This guide is available with the March 2019 edition of Tatler.
Each year, Tatler produces several guides. Top health journalist, Francesca White, edits the Beauty and Cosmetic Surgery Guide. Francesca and her team interview all of the doctors included in the guide.
The guide features all areas of beauty and cosmetic surgery. Although veins are mainly medical, there is a cosmetic component to many vein conditions.
In the past, varicose veins and spider veins were considered “only cosmetic”. As such, new developments and research into these conditions have been ignored.
Most UK doctors and nurses treating veins do not go to international research meetings about veins. Therefore, most UK patients do not get offered the latest vein techniques.
At The Whiteley Clinic, we regularly see people who have had treatment elsewhere for a second opinion. Either their veins didn’t ever go after “treatment”. Or the veins returned very quickly.
The usual cause is for this is an inaccurate diagnosis. The secondary cause is inadequate treatment.
By following The Whiteley Protocol, every patient gets the latest and optimal treatment. This is regardless of which combination of vascular technologist and consultant they see.
This mainly applies to leg varicose veins, spider veins and pelvic veins.
Pelvic congestion syndrome has been overlooked by most gynaecologists for years. The Whiteley Clinic is a world-leading clinic in this condition.
We are also working with colorectal surgeons for the local anaesthetic treatment of haemorrhoids (piles) using the Rafaelo system.
Our latest research also includes the removal of prominent veins on the face, and a new technique to remove brown stains on the legs following venous disease or treatments.
It is thrilling for us to have Prof Mark Whiteley honoured with inclusion into this guide for a further year. We welcome the recognition for the continued effort that the whole team puts into our research and development of new treatments for venous disease.
The guide is available with the March 2019 edition of Tatler which is in the newsagents now, or available by online subscription through the Tatler website.
