In a crossectomy, the stock vein that causes varicose veins in the groin or popliteal vein is tied off and, if possible, removed over a length of a few centimeters. As a result, the blood in the main vein can no longer flow back. This treatment is still used when a laser or RF treatment is not possible. The procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic.
A referral letter for the first consultation, including vascular examination (duplex), is required in connection with the reimbursement thereof. Without a referral letter, these costs are for your own account.
After the vascular examination, it is known whether it concerns a medical or cosmetic treatment. If it concerns a cosmetic treatment, you must pay for the treatment yourself. This also applies to the stockings. If it concerns medical treatment, the costs will be submitted to your insurer.
