In ADONIS clinic, you can have a consultation with experienced phlebologists. They deal with pathological diseases of veins of the lower extremities:

The most frequent disease, that people suffer from, is varicosity. More often it is diagnosed in women. It occurs due to a violation of blood flow through the venous bed.
The causes of varicose veins
Experts believe that the main reason is genetic predisposition. Also, the higher risk have pregnant women, overweight people, people with heart diseases and people whose professions involve a frequent static position of the body and increased physical activity.
Varicosity is characterized by the following symptoms:
- fast fatiguability
- heavy legs, swelling, more often in the evening
- cramps, especially at night
- spider veins
- painful sensations in the area of varicose veins
- distended veins
When treating varicose veins, it is important to consult a doctor as soon as the first signs appear. It is easier then to avoid complications such as thrombophlebitis, trophic disorders, bleeding wounds, that are difficult to treat.
During consultation, the phlebologist will conduct an examination, if necessary, prescribe the ultrasound scan of vessels, veins of the lower extremities and, based on the collected medical history, prescribe the treatment.
Services provided by Phlebologists:
Phlebectomy is a modern, minimally invasive procedure in which vessels or subcutaneous veins are removed to restore blood flow. It is performed usually under local anesthesia and does not leave scars. During this procedure, a small puncture or incision is made, after which the affected vein is pulled out with a special hook, crossed and removed. This intervention is not very painful and is carried out in a day hospital.
Microsclerotherapy of spider veins – that is microinjections of a special drug into the vessel. They are performed using thin cosmetic needles or a catheter, through which a sclerosant is supplied into the vein, leading to “sticking” of the vessel walls. As a result, blood does not flow into the vessel and after a few days there aren’t any spider veins. Most patients require repeated microsclerotherapy sessions with an interval of 2-7 days.
Echosclerotherapy. Elimination of varicose veins is performed under ultrasound control using foam technology. When the conventional sclerotherapy requires several procedures and from 3 to 15 injections, the foam one – only 1-3 injections and 1-2 procedures. Foam sclerotherapy can successfully sclerose even very large veins.
The choice of method depends on the severity of the disease and is made by the phlebologist.
