Dr. Alexander Flor, a skilled and experienced surgeon, may refer you for surgery i.e. if you have had several episodes of thrombophlebitis – the recurring inflammation of a vein – or the bleeding from a varicose vein that has broken down. However, the most common treatment for varicose veins is still considered to be surgery.

Surgical ligation and stripping pose higher numbers of possible side effects than ambulatory phlebectomy, laser surgery and endoscopic vein surgery. Nevertheless, serious medical complications are rare. Dr. Flor ties the varicose vein shut, to remove the long or short saphenous veins in the legs. Patients receive local or general anesthesia prior to surgery.

Laser surgery is performed by inserting a thin laser fiber into the vein. The fiber is then slowly removed as the laser energy flows through the fiber, causing the vein walls to collapse and seal shut. This is done by inserting a laser fiber directly into the vein through a small incision and transmitting energy through the fiber while it is slowly removed from the vein.

Foam sclerotherapy is used to treat the larger veins. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a chemical into your varicose veins. Your legs will be tightly bandaged afterwards.

Dr. Flor will suggest you to wear compression stockings after surgery as well as after other varicose veins treatments. The thrombo-embolic deterrent stockings (TED) will improve circulation in your legs. They are tightest at the ankle and get gradually looser as they go further up your leg. This encourages your blood to flow upwards towards your heart. These are stockings that have been especially designed to squeeze the legs in order to help maintain your circulation. After surgery they relieve swelling and aching of your legs and can prevent more varicose veins from developing.

For appropriate information on specific procedures as well as for making an examination appointment to discuss your individual care, please contact Dr. Flor. He will explain your options to you and help you decide which treatment is best for you.

Dr. Flor follows the call to practice again at Viennas Privatklinik Döbling.
