About the Department of Vascular Surgery and Angiology at Hospital Nordwest Frankfurt am Main
According to the reputable Focus magazine, the Department of Vascular Surgery and Angiology at the Hospital Nordwest Frankfurt am Main ranks among the best German medical facilities in the field of vascular surgery!
The department offers the full range of surgical and conservative treatments for diseases of the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels. The department also operates a specialized outpatient clinic for the treatment of chronic non-healing wounds. In the field of vascular surgery, key attention is paid to the treatment of circulatory disorders, vascular stenosis, bypass surgery, stent implantation and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty. Vascular surgeons cooperate closely with radiologists, as most surgical procedures are performed under image guidance. The specialists in the field of angiology provide conservative treatment of deep vein thrombosis, varicose veins and bleeding disorders. The department's medical team has all the necessary medical and technical resources, as well as exceptional professional skills to ensure the effective treatment of vascular pathologies of any severity.The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Bratislava Milan Lisy.
The key to successful treatment is accurate diagnostics, and therefore the department's diagnostic rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art systems for continuous-wave and pulse-wave Doppler sonography, duplex ultrasonography, percutaneous oxygen saturation measurement, plethysmography, phlebography, CT, MRI and other diagnostic studies. During the initial consultation, the attending physician studies the patient's medical history, receives information about his complaints, based on which he prescribes the required complex of diagnostic tests, which will help him to determine the nature of pathological changes in the vascular system and effectively eliminate them.
After establishing an accurate diagnosis, the department's specialists make a decision about the forthcoming treatment. Obviously, the preference is always given to conservative and sparing treatment methods. Whenever possible, the department's doctors use only drug therapy (for example, in case of bleeding disorders, deep vein thrombosis), but in many cases a surgical intervention is still required. A huge advantage for the patient is the fact that most surgical procedures in the department are performed using sparing endovascular techniques. The endovascular procedures are performed percutaneously, under image guidance, with the use of special instruments. At the same time, the doctor does not make large incisions in the skin and soft tissues, but small punctures up to 4 mm in size, so the patient can return to his usual life as soon as possible. As a rule, the hospitalization period does not exceed 3 days. The endovascular interventions are performed under local anesthesia, which is also one of the advantages of this type of treatment. Some vascular interventions can be performed on an outpatient basis. For example, the interventions to implant port systems, surgery to form a dialysis access, surgery to treat varicose veins, surgery to implant pacemakers and bronchoscopy are usually performed on an outpatient basis.
