Vascular surgeon

A vascular surgeon operates on the blood vessels

Specialist who operates on blood vessels

He treats blocked or distended arteries all over the body as well as chronic venous diseases (e.g. varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, etc). Preventive operations are also performed, for instance, to prevent a stroke, the loss of a leg or acute kidney failure caused by blockage of a kidney artery, which ultimately leads to dialysis.

Over 320,000 operations on varicose veins are performed in Germany every year. Untreated varicose veins may cause thromboses or a venous leg ulcer. Once the surgeon has made his diagnosis, there are a number of different surgical procedures he can choose from.
