Do you suffer from varicose veins? Then our phlebologists offer various treatments. One of these treatments is the laser treatment. We will tell you more about this.

Treating varicose veins with laser treatment

During laser treatment, the varicose vein in the thigh or calf is closed using a laser. Under ultrasound guidance, the varicose vein is punctured at the knee (if we are treating the upper leg) or at the bottom of the calf (if we are treating the calf). A laser wire is advanced into the vein through this access. The correct position of the laser wire is determined with ultrasound. The vein is anesthetized and then cauterized with the heat of the laser light by slowly withdrawing the wire. The result is that the vein wall shrinks and the varicose vein closes.

Elastic support stocking

After the treatment you will be given an elastic compression stocking that you will wear for 36 hours. We already have the stocking ready for you.

Reimbursement for laser treatment

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.
