Top vascular surgeons in Germany


Vascular disorders, both chronic and acute, are fairly common throughout the world. The biggest proportion of vascular patients is traditionally registered in the USA, Great Britain and Canada. In the past four years the vascular surgery clinics in Germany have witnessed a significant increase in patients who need the highly sophisticated vascular surgery.

With the view to this fact, the German weekly magazine FOCUS in close cooperation with the German Cardiovascular Society has recently published the list of the “Top vascular surgeons” in Germany.

The major parameter, which have been paid attention to during the comprehensive comparative survey were the following:

  • Treatment success rate and complication rates
  • “patient volume”, i.e. the number of treated patients (a year)
  • practical experience of the vascular surgeon
  • scientific excellence
  • recommendations

The rate of the best German vascular surgeons addresses the international patients who are planning to come to Germany for vascular surgery and are looking for the top medical services and the best angiology specialists.
