Dr Martin Scurr forgot surgery can cure Leg Ulcers

In an article yesterday in The Daily Mail, GP Dr Martin Scurr answered a question about leg ulcers (

In it, he quite correctly pointes out that leg ulcers can be cured by compression dressing and that they almost always come back again, needing continual compression.

What he didn't mention was the results of the ESCHAR study showing that surgery to the veins of the legs is just as effective in curing venous leg ulcers, but also prevents them coming back.

In our own research, we have cured 84% of leg ulcers - and 50% never need to wear compression ever again.
