Welcome to my homepage!
The following pages will provide you with compact information about my clinical and operational focus as well as my services.
My name is Markus Klinger. I am a senior physician at the University Hospital for General Surgery, Vienna (Allgemeines Krankenhaus Wien).
I specialized in the treatment of diseases of arteries of the throat (carotid artery), the abdominal artery (aortic aneurysm, aortic occlusive disease also known as Leriche’s syndrome) and the femoral (leg) arteries (PAOD – peripheral arterial occlusive disease), as well as varicose veins (varices).
As a specialized vascular surgeon, I restrict myself, as a specialist in general surgery, to the treatment of hernia (ventral hernia, within the abdominal wall) and gallstones.
As part of my clinical work, an additional focus is transplant surgery (kidney transplantation) and shunt surgery.
Surgeons of the Vienna General Hospital are well trained in all areas of surgery: abdominal surgery, vascular surgery, transplant surgery and surgical intensive care. Your safety as a patient is the focal point of my work.
I therefore carry out your treatment, according to the medical necessity and/or as desired, either in the Vienna General Hospital or in one of the surrounding private hospitals. If you have any questions or inquiries, please do not hesitate ask me during a physician office visit or by contacting me by e-mail.
