The Center of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery is a joint project of the University Hospital Muenster and St. Franziskus Hospital Muenster. The Center under the direction of Prof. Dr. med.

Every patient is offered the most sparing treatment option. 

The University Hospital Muenster takes an active part in the development of surgical techniques. Back in 1996, the physicians of the Department completed the range of services with endoluminal catheter techniques. Due to a long use of both methods and a constant participation in the further development of treatments, the doctors can of the Department under the direction of Prof. Dr. med.
