Christian Berg

Specialized in: angiology, phlebology, endocrinology

The Department of Angiology, Phlebology and Endocrinology at the Preventicum Diagnostic Clinic specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of arterial, venous, lymphatic vascular diseases and all hormonal imbalances (endocrine disorders). All medical services are provided in accordance with the latest scientific standards and with the help of the latest medical technologies. Particular attention is paid to the comprehensive diagnosis of pathology. The department is headed by PD Dr. med. Christian Berg.

In the field of angiology, patients are offered non-invasive diagnostics, medication or interventional therapy. In addition, the specialists of the department are engaged in the investigation of the causes of vascular diseases. Circulatory disorders in the afferent vessels (arteries) are a common problem in the elderly and are often caused by malnutrition, sedentary lifestyle, smoking and high blood pressure.

Another important department’s focus is endocrinology. The proper functioning of the hormonal system is the guarantee of well-being and a healthy life. Most of the "common diseases" develop due to the hormonal system dysfunction. There are many causes of endocrine diseases, but most often such pathologies are the result of hormone deficiency or excessive hormone production, autoimmune diseases or neoplasms (tumors).

The Department of Angiology, Phlebology and Endocrinology offers diagnostics and treatment of the following diseases:

  • Calcification of blood vessels in the carotid artery, aorta, vessels of the pelvis or legs
  • Obliterating endarteritis
