Your specialist for congenital vascular malformations

For more than 40 years I have been working as a vascular surgeon and treating congenital vascular malformations, especially in children, and I know the distress this can cause to patients and their families. People from all over the world travel to visit me at the Facharztklinik Hamburg [Hamburg Specialist Medical Practice], as they have not been able to find help elsewhere. By as early as the initial examination, I can offer encouragement to the majority of those affected, as congenital vascular malformations can almost always at least be positively influenced during the course of treatment, or even significantly improved. 

Treatment

Congenital vascular malformations can be detected relatively quickly by a specialist, by means of a simple clinical examination. However, because general practitioners frequently fail to detect the symptoms, incorrect diagnosis is unfortunately a frequent occurrence.

Pathology

Hardly any other vascular disease has such a varied clinical presentation as congenital vascular malformation. The disease manifests itself in the form of a pathologically altered vascular layout and circulatory system, which in most cases causes continual growth.
