Vascular surgery / Top clinic in Germany, Friedrichshafen

Vascular surgery in Germany

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.

Hello. My mother was recommended to have a surgery to minimize the risk of a stroke, but she is 70 and I am worried about possible consequences. I would like to explore the possibility to of examining her in your clinic, but since she has never traveled abroad and going to Germany would definitely be very stressful for her, is it possible to have a preliminary remote consultation to assess the necessity for that?
