Your Venous Specialists in Vienna - Prevention, Diagnosis & Treatment of Venous Diseases
The older we get, the more important a preventive vein care is for our health. Poor circulation in the legs and dilating blood vessels often lead to problems. Whether varicose veins, spider veins or skin redness: Venous diseases have many faces. That is why it is particularly important to get the right treatment. However, it is difficult to find the right vein specialist for exactly your problem.
For this reason, we have opened a centre for vein medicine in our practice in 1170 Vienna. Dr. Charlotte Grillitsch strengthened her team with Dr. Michael Mellek. Thus two specialists in different fields of vein medicine are there for you. In other words, we can offer you prevention, diagnostics and treatment of venous diseases of all kinds.
The vein doctors recommend preventive vein examinations for patients of all ages. This way you can easily prevent varicose vein operations!
How are venous diseases such as varicose veins or spider veins treated?
The treatments are very different depending on the disease. The most common problems are in the legs and face. Especially older people are often affected by vein problems. As a result, the blood vessels become larger, darker and more visible. After all, varicose veins often form and surgical intervention may then be necessary. Our doctors only perform classic vein stripping in rare cases. Instead, we use surgical methods that do not require skin incisions: the RFITT method and laser ablation.
Smaller blood vessels are treated with an injection. In our practice we use ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy. Even smaller vessels, also called spider veins, are treated with special lasers. In short, a personal consultation is absolutely necessary in order to be able to assess exactly which treatment is the right one for your problem.
