Varicose veins glue is an exciting new treatment for varicose veins. It has just been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in America.
Unlike laser and radiofrequency, the technique of varicose veins glue uses no heat during the treatment.
The heat produced by laser and radiofrequency means that fluid needs to be injected around the veins being treated. This is called “tumescence”. It requires additional injections to be given.
With the Venaseal™ varicose veins glue, only one injection is need for each vein treated. Each injection numbs one patch of skin.
The Whiteley Clinic was one of the first 3 centres in the UK using Venaseal™ varicose veins glue. Indeed, it was involved in the first Venseal™ study in Europe.
Professor Whiteley and his team train other doctors to use the varicose veins glue. The Whiteley Clinic has a specialist varicose veins training in Guildford, Surrey.
The Venaseal™ varicose veins glue is now included in The Whiteley Protocol™. As such, it is offered to patients with suitable varicose veins.
In the USA, all drugs and devices need FDA approval. This doesn’t just show that they are safe. FDA approval is only given when they are proved to be effective as well.
The FDA approval can be seen here:
The Whiteley Clinic treats every patient according to The Whiteley Protocol™. In this way, every patient gets a treatment tailored to their own pattern of varicose veins.
All of our treatments are based on research – usually our own.
The Whiteley Clinic was involved in the original European Study of Venaseal™ varicose veins glue. All of these patients treated at The Whiteley Clinic has excellent results.
Therefore we are happy to include varicose veins glue into The Whiteley Protocol™.
