About the department

The vascular surgery and angiology department at Nordwest Hospital Frankfurt am Main deals with vein and arterial surgery. The treatment of patients in the department is carried out on an interdisciplinary basis, involving vascular surgeons, cardiologists and radiologists for optimal diagnosis and therapy. According to the prestigious Focus magazine, the department is one of the best medical institutions in Germany in vascular surgery and angiology. The department has an outpatient wound care centre. For inpatients with chronic or problematic wounds, qualified medical staff are on duty in the wards. For an accurate diagnosis, the department is equipped with the most modern systems of dopplerography, duplex sonography, plethysmography, CT and MRI. Doctors always prefer conservative treatment, so several vascular diseases are treated with medication and compression therapy.

The department's primary focus is the treatment of vascular circulatory disorders, narrowing of the arteries, varicose veins and vascular malformations. In the department, surgeons treat not only acute and chronic circulatory diseases. In addition to bypass or narrow vessel excision, vascular surgeons also offer a wide range of interventional forms of therapy, such as percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting. A huge advantage for patients is that most surgical interventions are performed using minimally invasive, endovascular techniques.
