Treat varicose veins and spider veins
The goal is to treat the veins as minimally invasive as possible. We use endovenous methods as often as possible. These are Sclerotherapy or endovenous thermal ablation. The advantage: an outpatient treatment with few risks.
Our vein specialists at the Venenzentrum am See in Felmeilen will be happy to advise you on your options. Sometimes a combination of treatment methods is also necessary to correct your vein disease. Together, we will find the most suitable treatment for you and your needs – so that you can soon return to your everyday life – free of symptoms and in good health.
Diagnostics and examination of venous diseases
The diagnosis and especially the therapy of venous disorders have undergone rapid development in the 21st century. Until a few years ago, elaborate examinations were necessary to get a picture of venous return and the resulting increased blood pressure in the vein.
Under the influence of technical development in medicine as a whole and especially in phlebology (venous medicine), it has come to the application of modern non-invasive hemodynamic and imaging diagnostic techniques.
At Venenzentrum am See, we offer holistic vein clarification using the most modern equipment available. Our specialists have specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of vein disorders. This includes the treatment of varicose veins, spider veins, phlebitis, and thrombosis. Our vein specialists have a great deal of experience with all current methods of varicose vein treatment.
The most important tool in the diagnosis of diseased veins today is duplex sonography (color-coded ultrasound). It has virtually revolutionized the assessment of the venous system and, in skilled hands, it is an excellent tool for the diagnosis of venous diseases and for monitoring the progress of therapy after treatment.
Our range of services for the treatment of venous disorders
In recent years, less invasive endovenous therapy procedures have established themselves as an alternative to surgical removal. In this procedure, a catheter is placed through a stitch in the truncal vein. Under ultrasound guidance, the vein is locally anesthetized so that the vein can be closed with heat.
Side branches of deeper, diseased veins are removed via a so-called phlebectomy. In this procedure, the vein is pulled out with a dedicated hook.
For the sclerotherapy of spider veins, we use liquid sclerotherapy at the Venenzentrum am See. Foam sclerotherapy is used successfully for smaller varicose veins.
Crossectomy and stripping
In this procedure, an incision is made in the groin, and the veins are dissected. The affected vein is threaded with the help of a wire and pulled out of the tissue. This very invasive method is now only very rarely necessary.
