Top phlebology specialists/ Top clinics for vein treatment


The vascular and venous system disorders need extremely delicate, technologically advanced and sophisticated approaches. Last year the German weekly magazine FOCUS has carried out a nationwide investigation in order to define the top phlebology specialists in Germany. Among the FOCUS responders there were 500 chief physicians and senior physicians of the most successful phlebology centers: Each of them has submitted written responses of recommended colleagues and departments. Besides, about 50 self-help groups have participated in the survey. The members of these groups have helped to learn more about the experiences of patients who have undergone vein treatment in Germany.

All the phlebologists, participating in the survey, were asked to give detailed information on the quality management techniques, applied at their clinic or department. The resulting average score was transferred to a three-point scale, reflecting the efforts of a clinic’s division.

The FOCUS “List of top German phlebologists” thus features those recognized specialists, who are appreciated in scientific circles and are strongly recommended both by the colleagues and the patients. We have analyzed the results of this survey as well as some other ratings, performed by the renowned information portals, such as Jameda, Sanega, Arzt-Auskunft, compared them with our own rating of the best phlebology specialists and want to introduce the GMG version of the most successful phlebology experts to you.
