Vein disorders such as varicose veins and spider veins are among the absolute widespread diseases and are absolutely not just a cosmetic issue. In fact, if left untreated, they can also have serious side effects such as phlebitis, thrombosis or an open leg. The Department of Phlebology and Vein Surgery at the Vincentinum Clinic offers a comprehensive and highly qualified range of diagnostics and therapies for venous diseases of all severity and complication levels.
The team around Senior Consultant Tobias Meinhold also benefits from the embedding of the Vincentinum Clinic in the Artemed clinic group, whose vein centers form Germany's most experienced network for the treatment of phlebological diseases. Bevor he came to Vincentinum Clinic, Tobias Meinhold was at the Artemed Specialist Clinic in Munich, the largest center for veins and skin in southern Germany.
In spite of his outstanding clinical expertise in the specialist field of phlebology and vein surgery, Head of Departement Tobias Meinhold attaches great importance to the human component of his work. His greatest concern is comprehensive advice and, in particular, the satisfaction of his patients following treatment. Our medical staff are competent, experienced, and open to our patient’s questions and wishes. Every patient receives individual care with their personal situation always taken into account — from the first examination to the follow-up treatment. A follow-up survey allows patients to evaluate how satisfied they were with their treatment. The hospital has received excellent ratings and recommendations from its patients.
Venous disorders such as varicose veins (varices) and spider veins are diagnosed externally using ultrasound (Doppler sonography and color-coded duplex sonography) or infrared (light reflection rheography LRR). The examination is completely painless for the patient and only takes a few minutes. The doctor determines whether the blood is transported back to the heart in the leg veins normally or whether there is a venous disease. When the venous valves no longer close properly and / or the veins are dilated, various types of varicose veins and spider veins develop.
Depending on the diagnosis, the doctor discusses with the patient which therapy is most suitable for him to remove the varicose veins or spider veins. From the classic surgical procedures to the minimally invasive techniques, the doctor can fall back on a wide range of treatment options. These are:
After the treatment, the missing vein does not restrict the blood flow in the body. The remaining part of the venous system easily takes over the tasks of the removed or closed varicose veins or spider veins. With all methods, at the Vincentinum Clinicwe do not only pay attention to a high medical standard, but also attach great importance to obtaining an aesthetic result, for example through the smallest possible incisions in the skin.
