A good result of the treatment can only be achieved by applying a comprehensive solution to the problem, starting with accurate diagnosis, and ending with active rehabilitation. The Baltic Vein Clinic offers all rational treatment methods and their combinations for treatment of vein diseases. The following treatment methods are applied in the clinic:

  • Drug therapy: Drug therapy is used as the main type of treatment and in combination with other types of therapy.
  • Compression therapy: The only one in Latvia – measurement with IMAGE 3D device for precise sizing of compression stockings! We offer the opportunity to manufacture compression stockings specifically for the patient within a week in Germany or choose ready compression stockings, tights, and compression product accessories.
  • Laser surgery, treatment with biological glue, radiofrequency surgery, foam sclerotherapy, steam microimpulse method, thermocoagulation. Our doctors work with 3rd generation lasers and 3 different types of biological glue. Leading vascular surgeon of the clinic, phlebologist Dr. Ints Udris has developed a particularly effective, unique and gentle method - endoluminal laser ablation of veins (TOTAL EVLA) - using the latest technology - a third generation device with a 1940 nanometer diode laser. During the surgery is used a fiber-optic probe with a very small diameter, with which it is possible to close all the lateral varicose branches and vein nodes. The doctor has been presenting this method at world congresses for several years now, arousing great interest among other specialists. 
  • Sclerotherapy: Carried out in foam technique under ultrasound guidance. The Veinlite® Transilluminator halogen light device is additionally used to ensure accuracy (in case of small vessels).
