Vascular and thoracic surgery

The Department of Thoracic and Vascular Surgery has two physicians, dr. Jorn Ruby, dr. Kim Taeymans and dr. Gert Mulleners, who deal with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the blood vessels. 

Both diseases of the arteries and veins are treated. 

For chronic wounds and diabetic foot wounds, there is a specific consultation under the supervision of a vascular surgeon and collaboration with a nurse wound specialist.
