About the department

The Department of Angiology at the Hirslanden Salem-Spital Bern offers the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients with diseases of the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels. Of particular interest is the treatment of venous diseases, for example, varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency of the lower limbs, etc. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Gereon Jachertz.

The department's doctors devote enough time to counseling patients, while the treatment is based on an individual approach to each clinical case. The specialists have extensive clinical experience, which guarantees their patients the top-class medical care and an optimal therapeutic result.

The department has state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, which allows to detect even the initial pathological changes in the vessels and timely eliminate them. For example, atherosclerosis can significantly reduce the patient's life expectancy, therefore it is extremely important to detect pathology at the initial stages and prevent its progression. The early diagnostics of atherosclerosis is performed using high-resolution ultrasound imaging and duplex sonography, which allow the doctor to visually assess pathological changes in the arteries prior to the onset of symptoms.
