In August 2012 we started with the VenaSeal® system as the third practice in Germany (after Dr Pröbstle, Mannheim and Dr Ahlm, Hamburg). The reason for this change of therapy was the opening of our second practice location Saphenion® Vein Center Rostock on August 1st, 2012. We wanted to get away from anaesthesia and extensive anaesthesia, so the VenaSeal® – system seemed to us to be a very good alternative, as it does not work with thermal energy. From the beginning, we kept comprehensive statistics on the technique of the method, the successes and failures, side effects and complications, and pain and convalescence. After the ever-greater experience with the new system, this also led to adjustments and therapy extensions.
