Vascular medicine at the Medical Center Quellenhof

Everything to do with veins, arteries & lymphatic vessels

Vascular medicine (Angiology) deals with the human vascular system, i.e. with changes to and illnesses related to the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels. Our vascular medicine treatments include the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of changes and/or illnesses related to the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels.

We offer comprehensive and professional clarification and treatment of all acute and chronic vascular diseases at the Medical Center Quellenhof. Illnesses relating to the lymphatic vessels are much rarer than those related to veins. Some swelling in the legs is often linked to a lymphoedema, which has to be differentiated from vascular diseases through a number of examinations.

You can flexibly put together your own personal health module from the different individual treatments. You are welcome to preselect these with your GP. As each individual treatment includes a consultation with a doctor we can refine and complete your selection during this.

Spider veins are dilated blood vessels that become visible through the skin. The heat produced by the laser device coagulates the blood contained in spider veins, causing vessel walls to collapse. The damaged vessels are ultimately destroyed by the body and spider veins disappear.
