Dr. med. Jan Duwe


Our goal is to pro­vi­de you with the best pos­si­ble indi­vi­du­al advice and tre­at­ment. We take our time and make sure that you are pro­fes­sio­nal­ly cared for and feel com­ple­te­ly well. Col­le­gi­al inter­ac­tion and cont­act with other spe­cia­lists and refer­ring phy­si­ci­ans are also very important to us.”

Dr. med. Jan Duwe is a spe­cia­list in vas­cu­lar sur­gery with a focus on both endo­vas­cu­lar and open sur­gi­cal tre­at­ment of pel­vic and leg arte­ries. He spe­cia­li­zes in the tre­at­ment of dise­a­ses of the veins, espe­ci­al­ly vari­co­se veins and the rel­ap­se the­reof. In addi­ti­on, Dr. med. Jan Duwe spe­cia­li­zes in the crea­ti­on of indi­vi­du­al access for dia­ly­sis pati­ents (arte­rio­ve­nous fis­tu­la or shunt sys­tem, such as cathe­ter implantation).

After stu­dy­ing medi­ci­ne at the Cha­ri­té of Hum­boldt Uni­ver­si­ty in Ber­lin, Dr. med. Jan Duwe attai­ned a doc­to­ra­te with expe­ri­men­tal cli­ni­cal work on the in vitro coa­ting of vas­cu­lar pro­s­the­ses with human endo­the­li­al cells. For this dis­ser­ta­ti­on, he recei­ved the Robert Koch Pri­ze from the Cha­ri­té in 1999.

Dr. med. Jan Duwe began his trai­ning in car­diac sur­gery at the Cha­ri­té of Hum­boldt Uni­ver­si­ty in Ber­lin. He has lived and work­ed in Switz­er­land sin­ce 1999 and holds Swiss citi­zen­ship. He com­ple­ted his trai­ning as an FMH spe­cia­list in sur­gery and vas­cu­lar sur­gery (incl. a cer­ti­fi­ca­te of achie­ve­ment in phle­bo­lo­gy and endo­ve­nous ther­mal abla­ti­on of saphe­nous veins) at the Cli­nic for Car­diac and Vas­cu­lar Sur­gery with Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h.c. T. Car­rel and Prof. Dr. med. J. Schmid­li at the Insel­spi­tal hos­pi­tal in Bern and as a seni­or phy­si­ci­an at the sur­gi­cal cli­nics of the can­to­nal hos­pi­tals in Lies­tal and Schaff­hau­sen. From 2008 to 2019 he work­ed as a vas­cu­lar sur­ge­on at the Lucer­ne Can­to­nal Hos­pi­tal and from 2016 to 2019 he was a seni­or phy­si­ci­an. He beca­me a Fel­low of the Euro­pean Board of Vas­cu­lar Sur­gery (FEBVS) in 2013.
