There are various reasons why you may seek treatment for your varicose veins: for medical reasons, for example because you experience daily discomfort such as cramps or painful spots in your legs, or for cosmetic reasons because the condition doesn’t make your legs look good.
You can come to DC Klinieken for a variety of treatments, such as:
- Sclerotherapy: removal of varicose veins using compression;
- Foam sclerotherapy: removal of varicose veins using injections;
- Varicose vein surgery: removal of varicose veins by means of an operation or VNUS;
- Laser therapy: laser removal of superficial varicose veins.
The specialists at DC Klinieken will test for these conditions using a variety of techniques, under anaesthesia when needed.
Before the first appointment with the treating physician a duplex ultrasound is sometimes made of the veins. This test is done to chart the course and functioning of your veins. Using the information from the first appointment, the treating physician can set up a detailed and thorough treatment plan.
If surgery is necessary, it can be done as outpatient treatment. Your medical history will be discussed beforehand. You will also receive information on how to prepare for the intervention. Our waiting lists are short, so operative treatment usually takes place within a few weeks.
