The Learning Channel - Varicose Veins of Pelvis and Legs cured on TV by Prof Mark Whiteley of The Whiteley Clinic

Severe Varicose Veins treated by Prof Mark Whiteley and The Whiteley Clinic on The Learning Channel

Pam came to The Whiteley Clinic and was seen by lead surgeon, Professor Mark Whiteley. Following The Whiteley Protocol®, Pam underwent specialist duplex ultrasound of her leg veins by a vascular technologist trained at The Whiteley Clinic.

This scan showed that the severe varicose veins of the legs were being caused by large pelvic varicose veins. The Whiteley Clinic is a leading specialist centre for the investigation and treatment of pelvic varicose veins.

Pelvic varicose veins treatment

Pam’s treatment started off with Pelvic Vein Embolisation. This is an x-ray technique where tiny coils are placed into the pelvic varicose veins to shrivel them away. The whole procedure is performed through one needle hole in the neck.

This step is essential to curing the leg varicose veins and to reduce them coming back again in the future. The Whiteley Clinic has been at the forefront of developing these techniques.

Leg varicose veins treatment

Once the pelvic veins had been successfully treated with embolisation, Pam was able to have her leg varicose veins treated. This was performed by Professor Mark Whiteley at The Whiteley Clinic.

Professor Whiteley used a combination of new endovenous techniques as directed by The Whiteley Protocol® to ensure Pam had the very best possible result and has the lowest possible chance of recurrent varicose veins in the future.
