About the department keyboard_arrow_down

“Always in touch” is the professional slogan of our vascular surgery specialists who work under the guidance of Dr. med. Ulrich Radtke. Their motto means not only keeping their hand on patient’s pulse, but also staying up with the times and being aware of the latest treatment methods. Top quality medical equipment and highly qualified surgeons afford implementation of some unique operations on central and peripheral blood vessels including narrowing of aneurisms of the aorta and other arteries; narrowing of the carotid artery; treatment of acute and chronic forms of extremities circulatory disorders; bypass surgery; and dialysis along with implantation of port systems for systematic chemotherapy and parental nutrition. In our clinic, vessels surgery is mostly performed by using minimally invasive method. This type of operation, both gentle and effective, leaves only the smallest incisions and ultimately reduces postoperative pain, risk of complications and rehabilitation period.
