Lakeside Center for modern Care of Varicose Veins

Vein disease, in particular varicose veins and spider veins, are among the most common diseases of modern civilisation. Over 20% of the population suffer from visible venous disturbances.

The spectrum extends from solely cosmetic disorders as spider veins to various grades of severity of varicose disease including leg ulcers (ulcus cruris).

Treatment modalities have broadened over recent years and significantly improved, thus allowing individually optimized treatment plans.

We as the medical staff of our unit,  Prof. Dr. med. Markus Enzler and Dr. med. Maurizio Camurati, are renowned surgeons and assure profound knowledge of all diagnostic and therapeutic options that are relevant for a state-of-the-art management of varicose veins. We are pioneers and commited advocators of endovenous thermal ablation (ETA), which allows almost painless ambulatory treatment under local anaesthesia. These procedures are rightly called minimally-invasive and include VNUS ClosureFast radiofrequency as well as endovenous radial laser ELVeS Biolitec. It is noteworthy that in the USA over 90% of the patients opt for ETA. In Switzerland, however, only a handful of surgeons or other specialists offer them by 2012. Notwithstanding, we carry out conventional stripping operations, whenever this is to the best advantage of our patients, preferably at Klinik Hirslanden, Witellikerstrasse 40, 8032 Zürich.

A further element in our armamentarium is sclerotherapy. For the treatment of spider veins we mostly rely on liquid glycerin (Sclérémo), wheras in sclerotherapy for major varicose branches we prefer polidocanol (Aethoxysklerol) foam. 

Helsana, Sanitas and Swica health insurance groups cover the costs of thermal ablation for (semi-)privately insured patients. Coverage by basic insurance plans can be expected early in 2013.

Coverage of Endovenous Thermal Ablation by basic insurance plans expected for 2013

As to 2012, endovenous thermal ablation using radiofrequency (ClosureFast) or Laser (ELVeS Biolitec) were covered only by (semi-) private insurance plans of premium insurance companies including Helsana Group, Sanitas and Swica.

Over recent years, several comparative studies have demonstrated that results of endovenous thermal ablation are at least equivalent to those of conventional surgery, but patients experience less pain early after the intervention and return earlier to work and normal life. Therefore, Swiss national health authorities are currently considering coverage of thermal ablation by basic insurances.
