Dear patients and referring physicians!


It is my pleasure to present to you my area of expertise and range of services within the field of vascular surgery.
Through my close cooperation with different disciplines, among which are angiology, neurology, phlebology and radiology, my patients can expect all-embracing care. Our team considers the choice of optimal therapy to be of vital importance. This is ensured by an open exchange and discourse between each medical field involved.

The most modern operational techniques and a vast surgical experience make for the shortest possible duration of hospitalisation. My team and I, through precisely coordinated organisation, outstanding service and a personally tuned medical therapy, make sure of the best possible outcome for our patients.
Do not hesitate to come in for a personal consultation!

We cordially welcome patients of all insurance classes!
