  • Thrombosis (clot formation within the blood vessels, such as deep vein thrombosis)
  • Vessel sonography
  • CT angiography
  • MR angiography

Medical Range

Range of diagnostic services

Angiological laboratory (examination of the vessels)

  • Investigations of the capillaries (small blood vessels)
  • Oxygen measurement in the tissue (transcutaneous, via the skin)
  • Walking distance determination (treadmill) (e.g. in the diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease)
  • Thermography (skin temperature measurement)
  • Examination of pulse waves (oscillography)
  • Venous occlusion plethysmography (functional testing of the veins)
  • Phlebodynamometry (measurement of venous pressure, checking the function of venous valves)


Vessel sonography (ultrasound examination of the vessels)

  • Doppler and colour-coded duplex sonography (examination of vessel blood flow, which can detect bottlenecks, such as of the cerebral arteries (arteria carotis, carotid artery), arm and leg vessels, abdominal aorta, digestive organ vessels)


Sonography (ultrasound examination)

  • e.g. of the abdominal cavity, thyroid, muscles


Cardiac diagnostics

  • Heart ultrasound (echocardiography), via the chest (transthoracic) or via the esophagus (transesophageal), at rest or under stress
  • Stress ECG



  • Gastrointestinal endoscopy
  • pH measurement and pressure measurement of the esophagus
  • Endoscopy of the bile ducts, gall bladder, and pancreas (ERCP)
  • Bronchoscopy (endoscopy of the airways and lungs)


Range of therapeutic services

Therapy for all relevant vascular diseases

  • Interdisciplinary treatment options for patients with vascular disease via close cooperation of angiologists, vascular surgeons, and radiologists (radiation physicians)
  • Conservative (medication), physiotherapy, interventional
  • e.g. peripheral arterial disease ("intermittent claudication" PAOD)
  • Thrombosis (blood clots in the blood stream)
  • Venous diseases (e.g. varicose veins)
  • Carotid stenosis (narrowing of the carotid artery), narrowing of other vessels (e.g. renal artery stenosis)
  • Raynaud's syndrome (white finger disease)


Treatment of gastrointestinal diseases (diseases of the digestive tract)

  • e.g. gastritis ("gastric ulcer")
  • Reflux disease
  • Achalasia (dysfunction of the oesophagus muscles)
  • Diseases of the biliary tract or bladder (e.g. inflammation, gallstones)
  • Inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis)


Treatment of pulmonary diseases (pulmonary and respiratory diseases)

  • e.g. pneumonia
  • Pulmonary embolism (vascular occlusion in the lung)
  • Bronchial asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, "smoker's lung")
  • Bronchial cancer (lung cancer)
  • Pulmonary hypertension (lung hypertension)


Treatment of cardiac diseases (heart diseases)

  • e.g. heart attack
  • Cardiac insufficiency (heart failure)
  • Endocarditis (inflammation of the endocardium)
  • Myocarditis (heart muscle inflammation)

About Jens - Ole Graf

Jens-Ole Graf is Senior Physician of the Clinic for Internal Medicine and Angiology at the Evangelisches Krankenhaus Hubertus in Berlin.

In his specialty area of Angiology, Jens-Ole Graf is concerned with functions and diseases of the vessels (arteries, veins, lymph vessels). These include degenerative diseases of the blood vessels, such as peripheral arterial occlusive disease (intermittent claudication), venous thrombosis (blood clot formation), varicose veins, carotid stenosis (narrowing of the vessels supplying the brain), and edema (tissue swelling) such as lymphedema. He also treats 'diabetic foot', a complication that arises in the course of diabetes mellitus. The clear goal of therapy is always avoiding amputation.

Diagnosis and treatment is based on experience and expertise in several disciplines. In this regard the Vascular Centre Berlin-Brandenburg is of particular assistance, in that angiologists, vascular surgeons, and radiologists work together on an interdisciplinary basis, ensuring the best care for the patient. The common treatment across professional disciplines spares the patient frequent changes of doctors, unnecessary duplication of tests, and long waits.

Most diagnostic options in angiology are non-invasive. The blood flow in the vessels is more precisely determined using vessel sonography (ultrasound examination) and/or phlebography (x-ray examination of the blood vessels with contrast agent). Wherever possible, the treatment is carried out with circulation-stimulating, vasodilating or anticoagulant medications, or via physically therapy, for instance with compressions. Only once these options have been exhausted will opening of the vessels be undertaken surgically.

In addition to good medical care at the Evangelisches Krankenhaus Hubertus, a versatile range of services is also available during the hospital stay. There is accommodation for accompanying persons in an apartment hotel on hospital grounds
