Phlebology means the study of the venous diseases. These are diseases that affect the veins of the vascular system. Varicose veins is one of the most commonly known venous diseases on the legs. They are gnarled blood vessels that are often visible through the skin as very small blood veins or larger, dilated vessels that are visible as cords.

How do varicose veins arise?

How varicose veins arise has not yet been fully elucidated. There is certainly a congenital weakness of the vessel wall due to abnormalities in the proteins that form the vessel wall. As a result, the veins tend to widen with increased pressure. Malfunctioning valves in the veins prevent blood from flowing properly to the heart. This causes more blood flow and the veins expand further. This causes varicose veins. There are a number of factors that influence the development of varicose veins

Risks and Complications

As with any procedure, the varicose vein treatments may involve risks and complications. You can experience the following reactions after the treatment, even though they are very rare:

Reimbursement of varicose vein treatments

From 1 January 2012, a referral letter for the first consultation, including vascular examination (duplex), is mandatory in connection with the reimbursement of this. Without a referral letter, these costs are for your own account account.
After the vascular examination, it is known whether it concerns a medical or cosmetic treatment. If it is a cosmetic treatment, you must do the treatment yourself Pay. This also applies to the stockings. If it concerns medical treatment, the costs will be submitted to your insurer.

Our specialists

We strive to always have your appointments with the same dermatologist. You can ask for it if necessary. In the event of an operation, your own dermatologist also performs the operation and also provides aftercare. Since we are not a training hospital, you will not see an intern or doctor / specialist in training

Experiences with the phlebology outpatient clinic

'Making and rescheduling an appointment went smoothly. The first consultation was smooth and pleasant and the treatment method was quickly established: a 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 that I was pretending and could not experience pain from my varicose veins. Doctor Van Vlijmen told me that the pain can certainly come from that. I was helped within two weeks.'
