The medical team of the department’s angiologists provides treatment for calcification and occlusion of arterial vessels, venous thrombosis and complications of diabetes mellitus.

The specialists in their clinical practice mostly have to deal with pathologies, such as peripheral arterial disease, Raynaud's syndrome, diabetic foot, vasculitides, deep vein thrombosis, chronic venous insufficiency and lymphedema.

The scope of endocrinologists' tasks includes the diagnostics and treatment of various hormonal disorders.
