Vascular System Centre - Schoen Clinic Düsseldorf

Your specialists for vascular conditions in Düsseldorf

Vascular conditions are among the most frequent causes of death in Germany. The legs, along with the arms, kidneys, brain and heart, are affected by circulatory disorders particularly frequently. Circulatory disorders and venous conditions sound harmless. But they can have serious consequences: if diagnosed too late, this can result in amputations, chronic wounds, a stroke or pulmonary embolism.

Our Vascular System Centre combining vascular surgery and angiology in Düsseldorf-Heerdt has existed for more than 20 years and is thus one of the pioneers in North Rhine-Westphalia and the whole of Germany. Our experienced vascular specialists attach particular importance to an exact diagnosis of vascular disease and have extensive technical equipment with state-of-the-art X-ray equipment and their own catheter laboratory.

We offer you individually tailored, state-of-the-art, gentle therapeutic methods for all acute and chronic conditions of the arteries, veins and lymph vessels. We particularly specialise in rare conditions of the blood vessels, which extend into the smallest vessels of the toes and fingers. In addition, we offer dialysis patients a special, gentle and promising shunt procedure.

Shunt systems for dialysis patients

Our experts in vascular surgery particularly specialise in difficult dialysis access procedures/shunts and the endovascular shunt system for dialysis patients. This new, minimally invasive surgical technique was developed in 2014 and, according to clinical studies, has also been used in normal hospital operations since 2016. Dr. Tobias Steinke, Chief Physician in vascular surgery at Schoen Clinic Düsseldorf, is one of the few experts in Europe who uses the endovascular interventional shunt system based on the ‘WavelinQ method’. 

Treatment of circulatory disorders of the smallest blood vessels

Blood vessels that are normally closed can be opened by means of catheter or surgery. Catheters and scalpels are too large for precise surgery on the smallest blood vessels in the fingers, toes or skin. This type of circulatory disorder is not uncommon and can cause considerable discomfort. The team at the Vascular System Centre at Schoen Clinic Düsseldorf specialises in these kinds of circulatory disorders of the smallest blood vessels.

The treatment of the vascular system using catheters

In many cases, we can avoid vascular surgery and use gentle methods: Catheter treatment often enables a blood vessel to be opened without anaesthesia or a skin incision that needs to be sutured. Many procedures can be used, especially balloon dilation, the insertion of internal blood vessel supports (called stents), and also the removal of blood clots that are causing a blockage and the abrading of hard wall calcifications.
