Vascular surgeon services

Vascular surgeons, i.e. specialists in thoracic and vascular surgery treat arteriosclerosis as well as varicose disease. In the private sector, most of their patients are varicose disease patients.

In cases of suspected varicose disease, a vascular ultrasound examination (duplex-doppler) to determine what part of the vascular system is dysfunctional is performed during the first visit. At the same time, a treatment plan is drawn up, and the patient can be booked in for an operation.  


Instructions

1.

Make an appointment online or by calling 09 7750 800.

2.

If you have insurance that might cover the treatment, please bring your insurance information (company name and insurance number) to your appointment.

3.

If you have been booked in for varicose vein surgery, please check the time of your appointment and familiarize yourself with any preparation instructions you are given.

Expenses

A private physician sets his or her own rates, so the prices may vary depending on how long the appointment takes, for instance. You can get information about a particular physician’s rates online or when you make an appointment. 
A 20-minute appointment with a vascular surgeon normally costs around 80 euros, but a Social Insurance Institution (Kela) reimbursement of 13.50 euros is directly subtracted from the price. The customer pays 66.50 euros plus an administrative fee, which currently amounts to 17 euros. In this example, the customer therefore pays 83.50 euros for the visit. Any necessary examinations and further treatments are billed separately.
