Surgical Therapy

The most common treatment of the varicosis is by surgical excision of the malicious vein.(crossectomy und stripping). For severe cases there is no alternative to the classical surgery.

The surgical operation consists of three steps

1Excision of the malicious vein at the junction to the great vein.(Crossectomy)(vena saphena magna) (Crossectomy)

2Stripping of the effected vein and

3removal of the side branches (Phlebektomie)

This classical operation is carried out by us in the modern operation theatres of Limmatklinik in Zurich.
