Salil Patel

Whiteley Clinic Summer Research Fellow - 2013


Salil Patel Whiteley Clinic Research FellowSalil is a first year medical student at Peninsula Medical School who spent the summer of 2013 working at the Whiteley Clinic. He helped perform a retrospective audit on the success of treating verrucae with Nd:YAG lasers as well as helping with an audit concerning the embolisation of pelvic veins.

Salil’s main project involved investigating the optimum conditions for making sclerosant foam – used in the treatment of varicose veins. This involved, along with altering the ratios and volumes of sclerosant, making batches of foam at different temperatures (using a walk-in fridge) and altitudes (which we did by conducting several experiments on Mount Titlis, Zurich).
