From spider veins to open legs
Many people have to deal with varicose veins: from the cosmetically disturbing spider veins to the quality-of-life-limiting ulcerations (open legs) and the many stages in between. You often have no influence on the development of varicose veins, but you can influence their further course. Therefore, you should take care of your legs in time.
We medical professionals refer to “hernias” when we mean “hernias of the intestines”. The most common is the inguinal hernia, followed by umbilical and abdominal wall hernias (mostly incisional hernias). These may be asymptomatic or painful and are usually identifiable by protrusions on the abdominal wall. However, in principle there is a risk of entrapment and death of parts of the intestine, which is why it is important to weigh up whether a hernia should be treated surgically.
As a specialist in general surgery, OA. Braun naturally offers you – in addition to varicose vein surgery and hernia surgery – the complete surgical spectrum of visceral surgery:
There are removals of changes in the skin or subcutaneous tissue, planned minimally invasive removal of the gallbladder, large parts of the proctological spectrum, procedures on the stomach and intestines – laparoscopic as well as open surgery (also oncological) – including endoscopies (stomach and colonoscopies), thyroid surgery and reconstructive arterial vascular surgery.
