Why choose AMEDS for CCSVI treatment?

AMEDS Centrum was one of the first clinics in the world to offer CCSVI diagnostics and treatment
for patients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.
We are in the global top three regarding the number of CCSVI procedures performed.

 

We have helped more than 700 patients so far and the number is growing every day. You can read some of their opinions in the Testimonials section. Our CCSVI clinic is constantly searching for opportunities to improve its knowledge regarding the CCSVI procedure. Our doctors take part in conferences and symposiums about Multiple Sclerosis and CCSVI around the world.

In CCSVI diagnostics we use Zamboni’s Gold (Doppler Ultrasound examinations) and modified Haacke’s (MRI examinations) protocols, designed especially for the diagnostic imaging of CCSVI. Our radiology team has vast experience in CCSVI diagnostics, with more than 1 500 Ultrasound and MRI examinations performed.

AMEDS Centrum uses the highest quality equipment and modern technology for both diagnostics and the CCSVI procedure. We continuously investigate new devices. AMEDS Centrum uses “MyLabVinco" Premium Echo Doppler Ultrasound System, which is the only product available on the market designed specifically for the diagnostics of CCSVI. Recently we have introduced IVUS (intravascular ultrasound) technology in CCSVI diagnostics.

CCSVI procedures in AMEDS Centrum are performed on an angiograph with software enabling digital subtraction angiography and quantitative vessel analysis. We are using one of the most advanced and safest devices available on the market, the latest model of Philips with advanced vascular software. We have also introduced high pressure balloons and cutting balloons in CCSVI treatment. We have introduced an anticoagulation (blood thinning) regime after the procedure to prevent thrombus formation after the angioplasty procedure. Our treatment is safe, no bleeding complications have been reported.

AMEDS Centrum has a team of highly dedicated physicians with experience in cardiology, endovascular treatment, neurology, internal diseases, radiology, pain management, and anesthesiology. We have a neurologist and a pain management specialist on board, both with experience in working with Multiple Sclerosis. Our interventional cardiologists have extensive experience in treating all types of venous problems. The thorough examination and insight provided by AMEDS Centrum specialists have been praised by our patients as unique.


AMEDS Centrum Medical Team led by Dr Maciej Zarębiński, MD, PhD is comprised of highly professional and superbly qualified medical specialists with years of clinical experience in Polish and foreign medical centres. All of our doctors speak English and some specialists are also fluent in French and Russian.


AMEDS Centrum collaborates with a multiprofile hospital providing maximum safety for our patients in case of any possible complications. It is one of the best hospitals in Poland, at the top of all ratings, with many international certificates. The hospital was recently awarded as one of the safest medical centres in Poland (Safe Hospitals Ranking).

AMEDS Centrum provides a complex and high-quality all-in-one service. Our potential patients receive an immediate response (within 24 hours) to all e-mail enquiries. Our coordination department makes sure that all your needs are responded to. We answer your questions (we call you if desired), we plan your accommodation, and pick you up from the airport to transport you to the hotel. We recommend Okęcie Airport in Warsaw, one of the biggest international airports in Poland with direct flights to the majority of capitals in the world, as your flight destination. We also organize pick ups from Warsaw Modlin and Lodz airports. We arrange the transport to and from the clinic for you and your companions. If the need arises, we use specialist medical transport (including ambulance service).

Every patient is cared for by a dedicated coordinator throughout the stay at the clinic and after discharge. Our coordination department speaks English, French, German and Spanish. As our CCSVI clinic is located near Warsaw, the capital of Poland, we will prepare several proposals to fill up your and your companions’ leisure time before or after the stay in the hospital (i.e.: sightseeing tours or a SPA stay). The continental climate (comparable to North America) will help you enjoy your visit in Poland to the fullest.


Finally, AMEDS Centrum offers very competitive prices
and the confidence you can’t expect from many exotic destinations.
