About the department

The department of vascular surgery and vein diseases at MEOCLINIC Berlin is a high-profile facility providing treatment for the vessels. Premium equipment used at the department allows for the fastest diagnosis and safest treatment in the shortest periods. For example, TRIPLEX sonography represents an extended possibility for diagnosis. The experienced vein specialists at the department received information about the condition of the veins and vein valves and the functionality of the veins. Existing or old thromboses can be visualized well with this non-invasive diagnostic method, so the vessels' X-ray with a contrast medium is usually not necessary. Modern treatment techniques are practised in the department. The "Venefit procedure" is a scientifically evaluated modern form of therapy developed in recent years. This minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of insufficient truncal veins has established itself mainly because of its low level of complications and effectiveness. The treated veins remain in the body, have no function, and are no longer visible from the outside. This and other highly specialized procedures are available on an outpatient and inpatient basis.

All aesthetic, minimally invasive, and conventional treatment methods for vascular surgery are carried out in this private practice. In addition, catheter implantation is also possible. Diagnosis mainly consists of different modern types of ultrasound. Sometimes, an X-ray and different kinds of angiography can be used.

Diagnostic procedures:

  • TRIPLEX ultrasound (​​combining different modes such as colour Doppler, spectral Doppler with B-image)
  • Ultrasound Doppler examination of venous valves (provides information about blood flow),
  • Duplex ultrasound examination of veins (combines Doppler with traditional ultrasound),
  • Light reflection rheography or photoplethysmography to measure blood volume in the affected area of ​​the legs 
  • Venous X-ray and venous pressure measurement

Aesthetic treatments:

  • Foam sclerotherapy 
  • Thermal ablation of spider veins using radio waves 

Minimally invasive treatments:

  • Endovenous thermal ablation of the trunk veins (“Venefit procedure”) 
  • Microsurgical phlebectomy (vein removal) 

Conventional treatments:

  • Operations to preserve the saphenous veins according to Chiva
