This month, Healthista (the health channel for women) featured Prof Mark Whiteley in an article outlining the new non-surgical or endovenous treatments for varicose veins.

Article on the latest treatments for varicose veins in Healthista

The article runs through the different "keyhole" surgery techniques that stem from the first case ever performed in the UK by Mark Whiteley in March 1999 and outlines those that have now developed into the optimal treatments.

Prof Whiteley also draws attention to the failure of stripping as a treatment for varicose veins and the need for accurate and expert duplex ultrasound scanning of the veins before any treatment is even considered.
