I have been a specialist on varicose veins for over 11 years. In this time I have worked for multiple clinics. Most people will know me from medical centre Jan van Goyen and Kliniek de Lairesse. Since February 2016 I have started my own varicose vein clinic: Spataderen-Amsterdam.
A varicose vein specialist or flebologist is not a recognized specialist. Flebology belongs to the field of surgery or dermatology. I have mostly been a general practitioner. Besides general practitioner I have been a medical advisor for insurance companies on the area of personal injuries. I am also equipped with the necessary knowledge in the areas of sport related medicine and orthopedics.
As a general practitioner I would regularly get patients, that would in one way or another have problems with varicose veins. I realized that during the education to become a doctor I learned very little about this subject. Because of my inclination to properly help my patients I started looking into possible treatment methods. By working together with specialized institutions I have developed myself to become a flebologist or varicose vein specialist.
