“To be treated by such a doctor is a stroke of luck. The treatment was great!“ This fantastic patient feedback can only be accredited to one doctor: Erich Minar. Working at Vienna’s General Hospital, he is a physician who is regarded as one of the world’s leading vascular medics, and is delighted. “I have reached my goals and have received national and international recognition. But what’s even more important is the recognition of my patients.“

The list of his scientific activities is impressive: over 600 invitations to lectures at international congresses, 400 original publications, the editor of 5 textbooks as well as the author of numerous book contributions and educational articles. He holds numerous honours (including honorary membership of the German and Swiss Society for Vascular Medicine, and the awarding of the Grand Honorary Sign of the Republic of Austria for Merits for Medical Research) as well as scientific prizes for exceptional physicians.

In 1978 Erich Minar was promoted “sub auspiciis”, the highest possible honour of achievement in Austria, to doctor of the entire medical profession at the University of Vienna. Here he also completed his specialist medical training in physics and qualified as a professor in the subject of internal medicine in 1988. Since then, he has been running a private surgery focusing on vascular diseases at the “Wiener Privatklinik”.

For these services modern diagnostic and treatment options are available. The main focus is on colour duplex ultrasound as well as the endovascular therapy of circulatory disorders by balloon catheter and stents.

“I work by the motto: If you don’t try to get better, you’ve stopped being good”. Thanks to ever increasing experience, it is now possible for me to treat the predominant part of all circulatory disorders endovascularly, i.e. in a minimally invasive way.” explains Prof. Minar.

His therapy is the gentlest way to maintain healthy vessels.
