60% of the adult population suffers from spider veins or varices. Varicose veins are dilated veins with a malfunction of the venous valves.
Depending on the size, location and extent of the vein changes, I can offer you various treatment options:
Sclerotherapy with microfoam is a special technique that can permanently close small, medium and large veins. After the treatment, compression stockings should be worn for one week.
Usually, several sessions are necessary to achieve a satisfactory result.
Through my years of experience, I know about the fears of many of my patients about venous surgery.
This small surgical procedure is performed on medium-sized veins, the so-called side branches.
The procedure is carried out in our practice under local anesthesia and does not require any postoperative recovery time – i.e. no sick leave. The patient is given a compression bandage for a short time and should then wear a compression stocking for two weeks.
A modern method using laser energy can cause the trunk vein to become obliterated and leaves no scars. The laser sclerotherapy procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis.
The main stem vein is closed immediately after the laser therapy, and the success of the treatment is verified simply and safely by ultrasound.
The patient receives a support bandage and goes home immediately after the laser therapy. Activities of daily life do not have to be changed in any way. The bandage is removed after five days and replaced with a comfortable support stocking that has to be worn for a further three weeks during the day.
An individual conversation with your venous specialist will clarify whether you are suitable for the modern procedure.
In rare selected cases, this procedure is necessary and will be discussed in detail with you.
