The Department of Vascular Surgery specializes in the surgery of blood vessels. The medical spectrum includes the diagnosis and all treatment methods of vascular diseases.

Another important focus is the treatment of carotid artery stenosis. A timely operation aimed at carotid artery stenosis can prevent the stroke. In addition, a timely operation of the enlarged aorta can prevent life-threatening bleeding. Blood vessels in the arms and legs on the other hand are especially treated to prevent thrombosis or to counter the effects of smoking leg or diabetic foot. Special treatment methods of the department include interventional endovascular procedures (balloon catheter, stent), minimally invasive varicose vein surgery (VNUS procedure, laser), vacuum sealing (chronic wounds) and fibrinolysis (clot dissolution).
