Vascular surgery is a specialist area of medicine that embraces conservative, endovascular and surgical treatment of blood vessels, often by means of vascular bypasses in the case of peripheral arterial occlusion or the placement of prosthetic vessels in the case of aneurisms. The surgical treatment of the cerebral blood vessels in the case of arteriosclerosis or as a preventive measure against stroke also falls under vascular surgery. Another form of vascular surgery is the placement of shunts. Our specialists at Friedrichshafen Clinic in Germany have a great deal of experience in this complicated field of medicine.
Disorders of the heart and the vascular system are still the main cause of death throughout the world. Due to the demographic development of the population, this is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. The complexity of vascular disease has always been a challenge to the medical world.

In this Centre, the Departments of Vascular Surgery, Radiology, Cardiology, Diabetology, Nephrology, Angiology and Surgery, and the Medical Clinics and the Dialysis Centre work all together in close cooperation to ensure the best diagnostics and treatment for each patient.
