1. What is treatment for varicose veins?

Varicose veins are widened veins that usually manifest themselves in your legs. You can recognise them as enlarged and winding veins in your leg. Not only to varicose veins look ugly, they can also cause pain. Varicose vein treatment may offer a solution. A phlebologis is a physician who specialises in treating varicose veins.

2. Referral required for treatment for varicose veins

You need a referral from a general practitioner or medical specialist for varicose vein treatment. You must enclose a copy of the referral when submitting the invoice.
