About

 

Professor Mark Whiteley is a Consultant Vascular Surgeon at the Whiteley Clinics and a visiting Professor at The University of Surrey. He is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome and he was the first surgeon to perform endovenous (keyhole) surgery for varicose veins in the UK.

Professor Whiteley opened The Whiteley Clinic in 2003, which is now a network known as the Whiteley Clinics.

They have also published over 130 papers in peer-reviewed journals.

Professor Whiteley has been named as by the recommended vein surgeon by Tatler for over 11 years. In 2001, he and Judy Holdstock invented the TRLOP technique used for closing incompetent perforating veins. He has also written a book - "Understanding Venous Reflux: The Cause of Varicose Veins and Venous Leg Ulcers" and had edited a book with Emma Dabbs "Advances in Phlebology and Venous Surgery Volume 1".

In February 2019 he performed the first microwave treatment of varicose veins in the UK.

Medical Procedures

ENDOVENOUS MICROWAVE Varicose veins ablation (emwa)

In February 2019, Mark Whiteley performed the first Microwave Ablation of Varicose Veins (EMWA) in the UK. He is now running course to teach other doctors in the UK how to perform this surgery.

Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) - Walk in Walk out local anaesthetic only 

  • Radial laser for larger veins 
  • Jacket fibre laser for smaller veins
  • All treatments based on The Whiteley Protocol - a research-based protocol to optimise treatments

Endovenous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) - WALK IN WALK OUT LOCAL ANAESTHETIC ONLY

  • RFiTT - using the Whiteley Protocol proven technique to assure closure
  • VenClose

VenAseal glue "Superglue" for varicose veins - 

  • Non-thermal and so reduces the need for local anaesthetic injections

Clarivein (MOCA)

  • Mechanochemical ablation (MOCA) called "Clarivein" uses a rotating wire and sclerotherapy to close varicose veins without needing many local anaesthetic injections.

Foam Sclerotherapy

  • Made using the published "Whiteley-Patel" technique and CO2:O2 (not air) to keep as safe as possible 

 

TRLOP - Transluminal Occlusion of Perforator veins

  • Invented by Mark Whiteley and Judy Holdstock in 2001, the TRLOP technique is used to close incompetent perforating veins. Failure to treat these veins has been shown to be one of the commonest reasons that varicose veins come back again after treatment.  

Phlebectomy of forehead and facial veins

  • Removal of large veins from the forehead and from around the eyes under local anaesthetic with virtually no scars.

Coil embolisation of pelvic veins

  • At the Whiteley Clinics we have specialist radiologists that work with us who perform coils embolisation of pelvic veins in patients with pelvic varicose veins or pelvic congestion syndrome.

Microsclerotherapy

  • For leg spider veins (Telangectasia)

Professor Whitely is a Super Surgeon! Made me very relaxed in spite of the intensity of the surgery, very chatty and informative of all that was happening.

Professor Mark Whiteley

Thank you - that is a lovely review. It was a pleasure operating on you and I am confident you will get a great result. I look forward to seeing you for your next stage. With kindest regards, Mark.

I have been a patient for a couple of years and I’m seeing the benefit of the treatment now Always fascinating to hear the latest news re veins and with Judy’s help we are winning ! Still a long way to go ....

Professor Mark Whiteley

Thank you for your 5-star review. Veins are so variable - some varicose veins can look awful and lumpy - yet go with one or two simple procedures. Others can look similar, but be very complex on the inside and take ages to get right - especially if there lots of surface thread veins. However, using The Whiteley Protocol we have an answer for every problem and by following the right pathways, we will get you to where you want to be. Thank you for your kind review, with best wishes, Mark Whiteley

Prof Whiteley clearly explains procedures and expected outcomes. He knows his subject and will enthusiastically explain his research which informs his procedures if you ask.

Professor Mark Whiteley

Thank you very much for your five stars and your lovely review. I always think it is so important to explain not only the procedures, but why we do them. This understanding helps patients have a realistic view as to the recovery. Although our techniques are minimally invasive (and the latest event non-invasive) it still is surgery and so there is always some time until the full benefits of surgery are apparent. Thank you so much for taking time to review me. I look forward to continuing to look after you. With best wishes, Mark Whiteley.

Had EVLA on both legs as well as phlebotomies. Very straightforward procedure performed by Professor Mark Whiteley who made the day a relaxed and even pleasant experience. The time flew by and I came out feeling not only confident that my legs had been very successfully treated, but also much more knowledgeable on vein anatomy and procedures, and also on the history of gin! What an excellent experience from an excellent surgeon!

Professor Mark Whiteley

Thank you so much for your comprehensive review. I'm delighted that you found the procedure acceptable and because we have followed The Whiteley Protocol, all when we have completed the series of treatments you will end up with the lowest possible chance of recurrence. It is always a pleasure to chat to patients throughout the procedure and this is one of the major advantages of our local anaesthetic approach - along with the reduced risk of deep vein thrombosis and nerve damage! Thank you so much for taking the time to review me thank you for your lovely comments. With kindest regards, Mark Whiteley.

Brilliant from beginning to end. Every member of staff was friendly and welcoming, I was instantly put at ease. The procedure itself was efficient and professional but everyone still maintained a sense of humour, and if you find yourself laughing when you are having a needle inserted in to your skin the team are doing something right. Every step of the process was explained to me clearly and my comfort was always the primary concern of both Prof Whiteley and my two lovely nurses Amanda and Natalie. As someone who has unfortunately experienced haphazard and sometimes neglectful medical care I cannot express how happy it made me to see people who genuinely love what they do and care deeply about the welfare of their patients.

Knowledgable, clear and easy to understand, felt safe and well looked after, made me in a good mood even if the procedures are somewhat uncomfortable.

Professor Mark Whiteley

Thank you for your review and I am delighted that everything was clear and understandable. With regards the procedures, I always find it annoying when certain commercial websites claim that endovenous surgery is "painless". As any experienced endovenous surgeon will know, the new varicose vein techniques are approximately 10 times less painful than the old stripping techniques - and if done properly have far better long-term results. However the injections are always going to be uncomfortable to begin with, and although the pain is nowhere near as bad as stripping, there will always be a little bit of discomfort post operatively. Our audits show that only one in 10 patients need any painkillers in the recovery part. Thank you so much for bringing the fact that these are uncomfortable into the open as this is something that is not often discussed in the advertising of vein treatments. Thank you so much for taking time to review me and our treatments. With kindest regards, Mark Whiteley

Professor Mark Whiteley

Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure treating you. Our research has shown how to reduce anxiety during local anaesthetic varicose vein endovenous surgery. I am thrilled it worked for you. With best wishes, Mark Whiteley

Professor Whiteley is a renowned World leader in vein research and treatments. He is extremely knowledgeable, very jovial and a wonderful raconteur. He puts you at ease immediately and you know you’re in good hands.I have had several varicose vein procedures prior to coming to this clinic,none of which were particularly successful. He explained that my previous treatments were” of their time” but had not addressed the problem. Thankfully the current treatments I am receiving will rectify this and I am very pleased with the results so far.

Professor Mark Whiteley

Thank you for your lovely review. we have the most amazing vascular technologists who work under the developments the Judy Holdstock have brought to the veins world and specifically to The Whiteley Clinic. with such good duplex, we often see what has been missed in previous operation elsewhere. I am sure we will get you the results that you wish as you go through The Whiteley Protocol. With best wishes Mark

Professor Whiteley is quite unlike any consultant I have ever met. Although the knowledge differential between clinician and patient is vast, he never patronises. He explains everything clearly, at whatever level you choose, and is eager to enter into proper discussion about the procedures he undertakes. His manner with his patients is friendly and welcoming, designed to put you at your ease and his excellent relationships with his colleagues evident at every interaction.

Professor Mark Whiteley

Thank you for your lovely review. I am very pleased that you were satisfied with my explanations. I always try my utmost to explain things fully and am glad that I achieved this with you. Thank you for your lovely review. With best wishes, Mark

Prof Whiteley is second to none in the world of varicose vein treatments. I had the privilege of having been trained by him in person. His personality and the rooted passion for venous diseases are the driving force of the Clinic. Not only prof Whiteley is a brilliant vein surgeon, he is also a great colleague and a friend. I could not recommend Prof Whiteley high enough for any venous related condition.

Mark Whiteley is without doubt one of the leading Phlebologists anywhere in the world. He pioneered the use of thermal ablation in the UK in 1999 and performed the first procedures using the technique. This event represented a paradigm shift in the treatment of varicose veins and has paved the way in dragging the archaic and ineffective traditional treatment of humanity's commonest surgical malady into the 21st century. His research effort is highly respected and Mark has carved out a huge international reputation in the field. I am deeply privileged to be his colleague and to have shared in the journey over 20 years in the improvement and development of varicose vein and ulcer treatment. Mark has no equal in the field of Phlebology and the UK is blessed to number him among its top clinicians.
