The term ‘angiology’ comes from Ancient Greek ‘aggeio/angio’ (vessel) and ‘logos’ (speech) and refers to vascular science. Angiology is the study, diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases, i.e. diseases of the arteries, veins, lymphatic vessels and microcirculation. These four types of veins present their own diseases and risk factors.

Our approach

The essence of Dr Philippe Kern’s approach lies in putting the patient first, weighing the benefits against the risks in each situation before suggesting a specific treatment or surgery, and proceeding in the most conservative, least invasive way possible. He provides an explanation of the vascular disease affecting the patient, presents the pros and cons of the examinations and medical procedures, and discusses the details and decides together with the patient which therapy to apply.
