Dr. Barbara Montesanti
Vascular surgeon - Phlebologist
With a doctorate in medicine and a complementary Master's degree in general and vascular surgery from ULB Erasme Brussels, Dr. Montesanti wanted to specialize more particularly in phlebology, the sciences that study venous disease.

She is currently a member of the FILLMED group of medical experts, whose aim is to achieve the optimum level of knowledge in this field, so as to offer you the most suitable treatments for each individual.

VARICOSE VEIN SCLEROSIS
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a sclerosing agent into a varicose vein to destroy it. Sclerotherapy transforms the varicose vein into a fibrous cord, which gradually resorbs and disappears. The longer varicose veins disappear after sclerotherapy, the more numerous, extensive and very large they are.
Sclerosing agents act on the inner wall of the varicose vein immediately after injection. They are inactivated within seconds of injection by blood proteins. This means that they do not spread throughout the body, but are localised to a few centimetres around the injection point. On the day of treatment, you may feel a tugging sensation in your legs or a burning sensation that may last up to 3 or 4 weeks. Small bruises, redness and pigmentation may appear on the skin, which will disappear as the varicose veins are completely reabsorbed.
Walking helps reduce side effects. After the session, you'll keep small compression bandages on for 24 hours, as well as your compression stockings for 2 weeks during the day. If you experience pain, you may take an anti-inflammatory medication.
MINOR DERMATOLOGICAL SURGERY
Dr. Montesanti can also perform minor outpatient surgeries under local anesthesia, such as:
- Naevus excision
