Prof. Hardy Schumacher, MD Welcome

It is my great pleasure to introduce my field of work and the range of services provided at my vascular surgery practice.
I work closely with specialists from different disciplines such as angiology, neurology, phlebology and radiology to ensure my patients receive comprehensive care at all times. Our team will always aim to find the treatment best suited to your individual needs– with the support of and open communication between the various medical disciplines and in close consultation with you.

The use of modern surgery techniques and our extensive experience in surgery help to reduce the length of hospital stays. My team and I afford thoroughly organised processes, excellent service and personally coordinated medical care – leading to optimal treatment results for you, the patient.

Many issues are best discussed face to face – please arrange an appointment if you require a consultation.
