Due to our extensive experience as phlebologists we can identify a lot of venous diseases by sight and touch. Colour-coded duplex sonography allows us to precisely locate and assess blood flow obstacles (thrombosis), reverse blood flow (varicosis) and damages of venous valves. X-raying is no longer necessary.
Varicose veins are symptoms of reverse blood flow and therefore of a massive disturbance of blood circulation. Painful vein stripping has long been necessary, but today there are gentle, minimally invasive alternatives: radio frequency therapy with Venefit® (VNUS ClosureFast®) and endovenous laser therapy (vein laser ELVeS Radial™). The varicose veins are no longer stripped but only closed. We have already performed more than 1.000 operations – as outpatients, with local anaesthetic and high success rates.
When the small, superficial veins in the leg enlarge we speak of spider veins. This is not only a cosmetic problem that may occasionally occur after operations. It can also be evidence of a developing varicosis. In addition to laser therapy we offer you foam sclerotherapy, a particularly gentle way of sclerotization. In both cases compression is not necessary afterwards.
