The clinic is equipped with advanced diagnostic and treatment equipment. The machines used in the course of the treatment satisfy all safety standards and have relevant approvals and certificates. Some elements of Lexmed’s equipment:
- Laser diode – third generation laser equipment from the German producer A.R.C. Laser. This multi-functional device is suitable for phlebology treatment as well as dermatology procedures, e.g. removal of skin lesions or treatment of onychomycosis.
- Mindray M5 portable ultrasound – universal equipment for diagnostic imaging of organs of the abdominal cavity, breasts, thyroid and others. The system allows for the performance of Doppler ultrasound exams of veins and arteries. It is used for diagnosis at patients’ homes.
