Vascular surgery and vascular interventions

Diagnostics and treatment of vascular diseases

Veins, arteries and lymphatic vessels are the supply and disposal structures of the human body. They traverse the organism in a net-like manner. If these structures become dysfunctional, swift medical action may be necessary in order to prevent serious consequences.

Jörg Matthias Korn examines and conservatively, interventionally and operationally treats vascular diseases at his Beta Klinik-based vascular surgery practice.

His range of medical services in the field of vascular surgery and vascular interventions includes comprehensive diagnostics and therapies relating to

  • varicose veins
  • thrombosis and post-thrombosis status
  • lymphatic drainage disorders
  • congenital and acquired arterial diseases
  • congenital vascular malformations

Diagnostic range of services

  • ultrasound (B-image, duplex and triplex sonography)
  • computer-aided, infrared and pressure-related measurements
  • duplex ultrasound and Doppler ultrasound

Therapeutic procedures are individually developed and discussed with patients. Depending on the severity of the disease, treatment can be carried out on an outpatient or inpatient basis.

Therapeutic methods

  • sclerotherapy and laser coagulation of varicose veins
  • varicose vein surgery
  • conservative treatment of peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD)
  • arterial occlusion surgery (thromboendarterectomy)
  • bypass surgery
  • closure of arteriovenous (AV) fistulas
  • percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and stent implantation

Interdisciplinary treatment of arteriosclerosis

At the Beta Klinik, specialists from the fields of vascular surgery, cardiology and interventional cardiology as well as radiology and neuroradiology work on understanding arteriosclerosis as a generalized systemic disease, identifying individual risk factors and establishing corresponding individualized treatment concepts.
