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.

Reimbursement crossectomy

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.

'Making and rescheduling an appointment went smoothly. The first consultation went smoothly and pleasantly and the treatment method was quickly determined: laser treatment for my varicose veins. Pleasant contact and decisive.'

'Nice clinic, listens carefully to what you want and gives an honest opinion about varicose vein treatment. Very happy with the result. I would certainly recommend Dr. Van Vlijmen.'

'My pain complaints were taken very seriously. I always thought I was acting out and couldn't experience any pain because of my varicose veins. Doctor Van Vlijmen told me that the pain could certainly be caused by that. I was helped within two weeks.'
