Prof. Dr. med. Stefan Ockert


Medi­cal excel­lence and human exper­ti­se are very important to us. Near­ly 20 years of expe­ri­ence as a vas­cu­lar sur­ge­on enable me to pro­vi­de opti­mal care for my pati­ents. The long-stan­ding pro­fes­sio­nal coope­ra­ti­on of our team also gua­ran­tees you an opti­mum of qua­li­ty and con­ti­nui­ty in pre­pa­ra­ti­on, tre­at­ment and follow-up.”

Prof. Dr. med. Ste­fan Ockert is a high­ly expe­ri­en­ced spe­cia­list in vas­cu­lar sur­gery with a focus on the tre­at­ment of the main artery (aor­ta), the caro­tid artery and hybrid inter­ven­ti­ons in the pel­vic leg area. His trai­ning as a sur­ge­on was car­ri­ed out at the Uni­ver­si­ty Hos­pi­tal Mann­heim. In 2003 he began fur­ther trai­ning to beco­me a vas­cu­lar sur­ge­on at the renow­ned Cli­nic for Vas­cu­lar Sur­gery at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hei­del­berg under Prof. J. R. Allenberg.

Sub­se­quent­ly, Prof. Ockert work­ed as a seni­or phy­si­ci­an at Kli­ni­kum rechts der Isar under Prof. H. H. Eck­stein, final­ly beco­ming his depu­ty as well as depu­ty medi­cal direc­tor. Prof. Ockert is a foun­ding mem­ber of the Munich Cent­re for Aor­tic Dise­a­ses (in coope­ra­ti­on with the depart­ment of vas­cu­lar sur­gery at Kli­ni­kum rechts der Isar, the Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Munich and the Ger­man Heart Cent­re Munich).

In 2012, Prof. Ockert moved to Switz­er­land to begin work as depu­ty head phy­si­ci­an and co-head phy­si­ci­an at the Lucer­ne Can­to­nal Hos­pi­tal. The­re, he expan­ded the endo­vas­cu­lar aor­tic sur­gery and intro­du­ced new endo­vas­cu­lar tre­at­ments. For many years, Prof. Ockert has regu­lar­ly par­ti­ci­pa­ted in natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal con­gres­ses as a spea­k­er at sci­en­ti­fic lec­tures and as a tutor at Vas­cu­lar Inter­na­tio­nal trai­ning cour­ses. He is also the aut­hor of a lar­ge num­ber of inter­na­tio­nal sci­en­ti­fic artic­les. Prof. Ockert is regu­lar­ly invol­ved in stu­dent rese­arch and tea­ching and has been Pro­fes­sor of Vas­cu­lar Sur­gery at the Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Munich sin­ce 2018. In addi­ti­on, Prof. Ockert is a sci­en­ti­fic advi­so­ry board mem­ber and asso­cia­te edi­tor of the jour­nal “Gefäss­chir­ur­gie” (“Vas­cu­lar Surgery”).
