Scott dos Santos


Scott dos Santos Whiteley Clinic Research FellowScott is about to enter his second year at the University of Surrey studying Biomedical Science.

He started working at the Whiteley Clinic February 2013 and will continue his work as a research fellow until he graduates in 2016. He has been involved in numerous research projects and is currently investigating transvaginal duplex ultrasound, the link between haemorrhoids and pelvic vein reflux and the long term results of pelvic vein embolisation.

After completing his degree he is hoping to pursue either an MSc or PhD, with an aspiration of researching chronic disease in the future.
