Prof. Dr. med. Stefan Ockert

Is the­re any bet­ter moti­va­ti­on for a doc­tor than to be able to help pati­ents effec­tively and las­tin­g­ly? Vascu­lar sur­ge­ry is able to make a signi­fi­cant con­tri­bu­ti­on to this by main­tai­ning people’s mobi­li­ty and qua­li­ty of life far into old age.

Dr. med. Jan Duwe

Your well-being is our top prio­ri­ty. My pas­si­on as a vascu­lar sur­ge­on: an indi­vi­du­al tre­at­ment for you that is inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry, inno­va­ti­ve and of a reli­able qua­li­ty that makes you feel secu­re and builds trust.

To be the­re for peop­le in cri­ti­cal situa­tions in which I can uti­li­ze my exten­si­ve orga­niz­a­tio­nal expe­ri­ence is an enri­ching task. It is a mat­ter of cour­se for me to be strai­ght­for­ward and friend­ly when dealing with patients.

Tre­at­ment at the hig­hest level, in coope­ra­ti­on with the Hirs­lan­den Kli­nik St. Anna. It is a prio­ri­ty for us that our pati­ents always feel com­ple­te­ly at ease in our prac­ti­ce. That is why we attach gre­at impor­t­ance to a plea­sant atmo­s­phe­re and an attrac­ti­ve ambi­ence at LUVAS.

Con­ta­ct bet­ween pati­ent and doc­tor is per­so­nal and dis­creet. A trus­ting rela­ti­ons­hip is of utmost impor­t­ance to us, so we gua­ran­tee that your super­vi­sing phy­si­ci­an will accom­pa­ny you throughout the ent­i­re tre­at­ment. In order to gua­ran­tee a plea­sant expe­ri­ence during tre­at­ment, we offer varia­ble ope­ning hours, sur­ge­ry appoint­ments at off-peak times as well as indi­vi­dua­li­zed evening appoint­ments so that even pati­ents with a hec­tic sche­du­le can always get an appointment.

You are in good hands with us.

We offer you the pos­si­bi­li­ty of making an online appoint­ment out­side of office hours.

Dear col­leagues

LUVAS Vascu­lar Sur­ge­ry Lucer­ne offers you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to refer your pati­ents direct­ly and easi­ly with prompt appoint­ments for vascu­lar assess­ment or sur­gi­cal planning.

All sur­gi­cal methods, con­ven­tio­nal­ly open and endo­vascu­lar, are avail­ab­le to your pati­ents. In addi­ti­on, it is pos­si­ble to obtain a second opi­ni­on on com­pli­ca­ted issu­es in an infor­mal prac­ti­ce atmo­s­phe­re. Kee­ping you up to date with infor­ma­ti­on about the dia­gno­sis and the plan of tre­at­ment and its pro­gress is a mat­ter of cour­se for us.

We look for­ward to a suc­cess­ful collaboration.
