Varicose Veins from the Pelvis

by – November 28, 2014

1 in  7 women with varicose veins in their legs actually have varicose veins from the pelvis causing them. Even more shocking is the fact that this rises to 1 in 5 women with varicose veins if they have had children (see our research the prove this http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19470861) .

Why is this important?

The reason is that if the pelvic varicose veins are not treated as part of the leg varicose vein treatment, the varicose veins from the pelvis cause the leg varicose veins to come back again!

Unfortunately, most varicose vein clinics and doctors do not look for these veins nor treat them. This is one of the major reasons that women get varicose veins back again after treatment under such doctors and clinics (see our research on this http://www.jvsvenous.org/article/S2213-333X(14)00093-6/abstract).

Last week Prof Mark Whiteley was lecturing in New York about how to diagnose Varicose Veins from the Pelvis. Judy Holdstock and Charmaine Harrison of The Whiteley Clinic have developed the Gold Standard test for this problem (see our research on this http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25324278) .

Today, Prof Mark Whiteley is lecturing in Portugal, explaining how varicose veins from the pelvis should be diagnosed and treated.

Luckily for women in the UK, The Whiteley Protocol® which includes all of this research, is available at any of The Whiteley Clinics.
