Department of vascular surgery
The department of vascular surgery at University Hospital of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich provides care for patients with blood vessel diseases requiring surgical intervention. The department has an exceptional range of treatments, ranging from complex operations on the aorta to endovenous (minimally invasive) varicose vein sclerotherapy using radio waves. In close cooperation with partners at the Vascular Center, the department can also offer medical care for patients with severe vascular diseases and concomitant diseases in an individual, interdisciplinary treatment concept. The department has a certificate from the German Society of Vascular Surgery, the German Roentgen Society and the German Society of Angiology. The department per year provides more than 700 vascular interventions. A specially qualified treatment team is available for patients around the clock. The medical and nursing team and the employees of the department for physical medicine and rehabilitation are at your disposal to provide optimal care and accompany you from the day you are admitted to the day you are discharged.
The focal points of the vascular surgery department are diagnostic and treatment of aortic pathologies, diseases of the supra-aortic vessels and peripheral arterial disease (PAD). In addition, the department provides implantation of pacemakers, defibrillators, ports and specializes in shunt surgery and installation of the dialysis catheter system.
