Professor Mark Whiteley MS FRCS (Gen)

Consultant Vascular Surgeon

Mark Whiteley introduced "keyhole surgery for varicose veins" into the UK by performing the first VNUS Closure in the UK on 12th March 1999. He can rightfully be called "The Father of Office Based Surgery (or Keyhole Surgery) for Varicose Veins in the UK.

He has subsequently moved on from VNUS to introducing EVLA, RFiTT, Foam Sclerotherapy and other office-based vein surgery techniques to The Whiteley Clinic and has developed a protocol for using the optimal treatment in the optimal veins and, when more than one treatment is required, the optimal sequence of techniques. This protocol is called The Whiteley Protocol.

In 2000, he realised that Pelvic Congestion Syndrome was linked in many women to Vaginal or Vulval varicose veins, as well as recurrent varicose veins, and he developed a treatment for these conditions with Dr Tony Lopez - called transjugular pelvic vein embolisation (www.vulval-varicose-veins.co.uk).

On the 5th March 2009 - 10 years after introducing the keyhole surgery for varicose veins - Mark Whiteley introduced a new procedure for arm-pit sweating into the UK.

Invented in Buenos Aires by Dr Guillermo Blugerman, Mark Whiteley was taught the technique by Dr Blugerman himself - and performed the first in the UK.

He has called the technique LSA - Laser Sweat Ablation - or laser treatment for sweating from the armpits (www.lasersweatablation.co.uk).

He has several national and regional prizes and medals for his work, over 60 peer reviewed research papers and 3 book chapters published, and has led the new endovenous revolution for treating Varicose Vein under local anaesthetic with pin-hole techniques in the UK.
