Vascular Surgery is a relatively new specialty which involves the treatment of the vascular system diseases (arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels). There are two fully-staffed departments covering the whole range of modern vascular surgery, practicing the entire spectrum of state-of-the-art methods of treating vascular diseases (classical and endovascular surgery, modern conservative therapies treating difficult cases in cooperation with other specialties).Thus, the best result is achieved with minimal burden on the patient.
Besides, most of venous and arterial interventions are performed on an outpatient basis (one-day hospitalization) or via short hospital stay.
The departments are supported by modern diagnostic equipment (cardiovascular X-ray System, MRI, computed tomography, ultrasounds). Where required (severe cases), the Intensive Care Unit as well as colleagues from other specialties attend and assist around the clock with appropriate arrangements.
Moreover, the department cooperates with other specialties, including endocrinologists, diabetologists, pathologists, orthopedists and the diabetic foot clinic aiming in the early diagnosis and treatment of problems occurring in the lower extremities of diabetic patients.
