George Badham

Whiteley Clinic Research Fellow – 2010


George-Badham-Whiteley-Clinic-Summer-Research-Fellow-2010George Badham was appointed to be one of two summer research fellows in 2010 – he was a 2nd year medical student at Cardiff and about to go into his third year at that time.

George’s main project was to set up a bench model to optimise the treatment of RFiTT Radiofrequency Ablation of varicose veins.

Before his work the RFiTT procedure had problems with veins re-opening and the device getting stuck due to charcoal formation during treatment.

Under the supervision of Mark Whiteley, George showed why this was occurring and showed that by using the Whiteley Clinic method of performing RFiTT treatment, both of these problem could be overcome.

George presented his work at an international meeting in Milan where he was the only non-qualified doctor presenting. His talk was received very well, winning 3rd prize.
