Whiteley Clinics are private medical facilities specialising in the treatment and research of varicose veins and other venous conditions, like thread veins, leg ulcers and phlebitis.
Our own continued research, audited results, inventions and new technologies used in varicose veins treatment have led to the development of The Whiteley Protocol®, a standard of excellence for the diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins. We introduced the minimally invasive, or ‘pin-hole’, surgery techniques to the UK by performing the first such procedure in March 1999.
We invented TRLOP technique for closing perforating veins in 2001 and have been the leading clinic in diagnosing and treating pelvic and vulval varicose veins. We have continued to stay at the forefront of this revolution and have both a national and international reputation for our work and innovation. We have now performed over 20,000 minimally invasive or ‘pinhole’ procedures using EVLA (Laser), Radiofrequency (RFiTT®), Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (USGF), Transluminal Occlusion of Perforating veins (TRLOP) and Ambulatory Phlebectomy. We also treat spider veins with Microsclerotherapy.
Opened in April 2014, Whiteley Clinics Bristol is conveniently located within the spectacular Litfield House Medical Centre in the heart of Clifton Village and serves the Bristol and Bath area. Led by Consultant Vascular Surgeon Mr Mike Rocker and supported by Chief Vascular Technologist Judy Holdstock, Whiteley Clinics Bristol brings the advantages of The Whiteley Protocol® to the South West. Patients at Litfield House will benefit from the new high resolution duplex ultrasound techniques used by Whiteley Clinics to accurately diagnose underlying causes of varicose veins.
All procedures are walk-in walk-out and are undertaken in the brand new operating theatre suite located within the premises.
