About the department
The Department of Vascular Surgery at the HELIOS University Hospital Wuppertal offers various treatment options for all vascular diseases. The department specializes in the surgical treatment of vascular stenosis, carotid aneurysms, complications of diabetes mellitus and other diseases. The department is the recognized Vascular Center certified by the German Society for Vascular Surgery. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Ulrich Kusenack.
The department offers the most sparing treatment for both common "showcase disease" (obliterating endarteritis) and aneurysms of the thoracic and abdominal aorta by means of traditional surgical interventions or stenting. In addition, in order to prevent stroke, the specialists of the department conduct carotid artery treatment: either by surgery or by balloon dilatation or stenting. Particular attention is also paid to lower extremity circulatory disorders caused by diabetes mellitus (diabetic foot syndrome). At the same time, there is maintained active cooperation with the Department of Internal Therapy (Diabetology) and specialists (consultants) on diabetes at the University Hospital Wuppertal.
