About "Baltic Vein Clinic"
The clinic was opened in 1999 and rapidly gained recognition among Latvian and international patients and medical specialists: 2,500 vein surgeries and manipulations performed annually confirm the stable indicators of professional authority and patients’ trust. All modern vein treatment techniques and their combinations, and technologies are applied in the Baltic Vein Clinic. Specialists of the clinic assess each case of vein disease individually. The most suitable diagnosis and treatment plan is drawn up for a patient, taking into consideration not only the type of disease, but also the patient’s general health state, mobility, family history, lifestyle and specific work requirements, financial possibilities, and other aspects, which are important in choosing the most effective course of treatment.

CERTIFICATION OF THE HIGHEST LEVEL

Barona Street, 50 Skanstes Street and 410 Brīvības gatve 410 (in Riga) as a part of Veselības centrs 4 has obtained an international quality management system certificate in accordance with ISO 9001:2015.

Veselības centrs 4 began treating veins in 1996. Dr. Elga Rēvalde and Dr. Sandra Prāve of the Department of Surgery of Veselības Centrs 4 started applying sclerotherapy in vein treatment. At that time, no one guessed that this would be the beginning of a long journey rich in experience which made the clinic the largest vein clinic in the Baltic countries.
A new era in the field of venous surgery began in 2001 with the introduction of endovenous laser surgery. A year later, the first endovenous laser surgery in the Baltic countries (ultrasound-guided) using the Dornier Medtech medilas D diode laser (980 nm) was performed by vascular surgeon, phlebologist Ints Ūdris, under the guidance of german professor Thomas Proebstle.
Having significantly expanded the range of services and supplemented the technical equipment with new, high-quality devices, and having upgraded the operating rooms, in 2010 the Centre of Phlebology of Veselības centrs 4 became the Baltic Vein Clinic. It began operating in a new capacity, opening its doors to visitors in spacious and well-equipped premises at 115 K. Barona Street in Riga.
The Baltic Vein Clinic of Veselības centrs 4 is the only clinic in Latvia and the Baltic countries to offer a combination of all leading technologies in one place.
