About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Section of Vascular Surgery at the University Hospital Erlangen covers the full range of vascular diseases. The specialists in the fields of operative vascular surgery, interventional treatment and conservative therapy work closely together. The Section is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Werner Lang. 

The diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases have considerably improved in recent years. The old methods were refined while new ones were successfully introduced. Thus, both stenosis and occlusion in the femoral artery can be expanded without any surgical intervention. The University Hospital Erlangen uses the most sparing treatments quite successfully. The University Hospital Erlangen also has the whole interdisciplinary spectrum of modern medicine. 

The Section under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Werner Lang specializes in the surgical treatment of carotid stenosis, surgical or endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm and treatment of obliterating atherosclerosis of peripheral arteries. Furthermore, there is provided medical care for patients with venous complaints. The priorities also include rare diseases, such as malformations.

Vascular surgery is also focused on bypass surgery for extended vascular changes. Quite often even in the especially severe circulatory disorders a leg amputation can be avoided.

  • Surgical treatment of carotid stenosis
