At the Center for Vascular Medicine and Vein Surgery, all venous surgical interventions are performed using the most minimally-invasive procedures and the latest scientific research. Our center specializes in minimally-invasive varicose vein surgery using modern endovenous laser treatment and radiofrequency therapy.
