Since 1995, Dr. med. Florian Netzer, Specialist Surgeon and Founder of the Institut Dr. Netzer, has specialized exclusively in treating vein disorders. When Dr. Netzer qualified as a specialist in surgery in 1993, he became Bavaria's youngest surgical specialist. He has since concentrated on venous surgery and has completed a number of post-graduate courses at medical centers in the USA, Italy and Eastern Europe. He has also been involved in training other surgeons since 2008, which allows him to pass on his comprehensive knowledge of the gentle, minimally invasive treatment of vein disorders. After careful and comprehensive diagnosis, Dr. Netzer treats vein disorders, including varicose veins, lipedema, pelvic congestion syndrome, spider veins, post-thrombotic syndrome and venous leg ("open leg”) ulcers.
The vein expert is also happy to take on cases that are considered particularly intractable and have proven resistant to long-lasting treatment by other practitioners. Dr. Netzer employs the most up-to-date procedures when treating varicose veins, such as radio waves, microfoam sclerotherapy and hot steam vein sclerosis (SVS) ablation, the long-term efficacy of which has been confirmed scientifically. His patients benefit not only from the excellent results of these treatment methods, but also from their gentle application. Most patients are fully fit again just a couple of days after their treatment meaning that they can go back to work, go traveling, or play sport, just as they please. This is only possible because of a customized treatment plan that Dr. Netzer devises for each patient individually. This often involves using several methods - although it is always important for Dr. Netzer to treat all damaged veins that do not require surgical incisions in a single session. This saves the patient from having to take extra time off for different treatment sessions. Since founding the Institut Dr. Netzer, he has examined and treated more than 20,000 patients. Because of his extensive experience, Dr. Netzer was commissioned by a well-respected medical publisher to produce a comprehensive text book on venous surgery. In collaboration with other internationally recognized specialists in the field, he edited “Endoluminale Varizentherapie” (2015), which deals comprehensively with all conventional methods for treating varicose veins. This practical text is highly specific and is intended as a reference source for phlebologists and vascular surgeons.
