Phlebologists specialize in the treatment of vein disorders and issues with the lymphatic system of the lower extremities. At GMS Hospital we offer the services of experienced phlebologists who are trained in the most advanced diagnostic and treatment methods.
Sign up for a consultation with a phlebologist at GMS if you have any of the following symptoms:
It is a mistake to assume that thrombophlebitis or varicose veins occur only in old age. Among the most common diseases of middle-aged people, those related to phlebology are consistently in the top ten. At the same time, a precondition for vein problems in the lower extremities is the failure of the vascular valves and weakening of the vein walls, which depends on a person’s heredity, lifestyle and profession, not his or her age.
Often, visible changes in veins do not fully reflect the patient’s medical condition, and a tiny spider vein may indicate serious problems and the need for surgical treatment. Therefore, if the initial symptoms of a disease have appeared, patients are strongly advised to see a phlebologist. You can arrange for a consultation online or by calling GMS Hospital in Moscow directly.
Phlebologist surgeons at GMS successfully treat all types of diseases and disorders of veins and the lower lymphatic system, of any degree of complexity and at any stage, including:
Vascular problems, especially at advanced stages where veins are dilated, elongated, or nodular, do not respond to conservative treatment, the patient will need to go to surgery. Self-administered treatment is not advised, as it often leads to a worsening of the medical issue. Based on the experience of doctors and testimonials of patients, the earlier you seek medical care for phlebological issues, the less radical the treatment required. You can easily arrange an appointment with a phlebologist at our clinic in Moscow, at a convenient time for you.
Your initial consultation with a phlebologist begins with a discussion of your medical history as well as your specific symptoms and complaints. The doctor will perform an examination with palpation to determine the presence of edema and varicose vein growth. The doctor will then evaluate the color of the skin; identify changes in the form of swelling, redness; look for irritation of the subcutaneous vessels and the presence of dilated and compressed veins; and assess the functionality of the valves and the patency (degree of openness) of deep veins.
For an accurate diagnosis, various instrumental tests may be performed:
Based on the test results, the phlebologist will design a comprehensive treatment plan which may require the involvement of other physicians.
In the surgical treatment of venous disorders, phlebologists use low-impact microsurgical and endovenous techniques. In the phlebology department at GMS, all types of sclerotherapy are performed:
The doctor selects the optimal treatment method on an individual basis for each patient. Phlebologists at GMS Hospital use an integrated approach to surgical treatment in order to achieve a perfect balance between results, reduced trauma, and cosmetic effect. For example, a fragment of the trunk of a damaged vein is removed using cryostripping technology, and a sclerosant is injected into the remaining part.
Operations are often preceded by a course of conservative treatment, with the need for surgery arising if the disease is not diagnosed and treated early enough. The vascular surgeon will recommend surgery only after performing a comprehensive examination of the veins using ultrasound. Vein operations are performed as elective surgery at the GMS department of phlebology; the doctor and the patient will agree on an appropriate date for the procedure. In addition to performing the surgery, the phlebologist will conduct all necessary preoperative work, observe the patient throughout the postoperative period, and design an effective rehabilitation program for a fast and full recovery. Additional procedures can be arranged at a time convenient for the client.
