Vascular surgery is a sub-specialty of surgery and therefore operates on vessels of the abdominal cavity, the extremities and the aorta (main artery). Furthermore, diseases or malformations of the blood vessels are diagnosed and treated. A senior physician in vascular surgery has years of experience as a specialist in the respective clinic of the hospital or a medical care centre (MVZ).
A senior physician will therefore need to have excellent technical training as well as interpersonal skills. After all, he or she directs the assistant and specialist physicians. Just as he or she resolves any conflicts with the nursing management. In order to be able to find these soft skills of the candidates, our algorithmic multichannel search supports you. The first results can be presented within 30 days. Our recruiters accompany you continuously until the hiring and beyond with in-depth medical expertise.
Thus, we understand the challenges of the speciality of vascular surgery. For example, it is important to analyse how varices (varicose veins) and vascular stenoses (narrowing of the vessels), need to be treated. Whether, open surgery is warranted or a minimally invasive endovascular (affecting the inside of the vessel) intervention through a catheter is preferred. In this example, the proximity to the cardiology becomes apparent when it comes to coronary vessels. But other medical specialities also overlap. For example, interventional radiology supports vascular surgery in imaging the affected vessels. Angiology (vascular medicine) supports vascular surgery in diagnostics and conservative therapy (treatment without surgery).
The position of a senior physician is of great importance for interdisciplinary communication as well as for the continuing education. All the more as the shortage of specialists is also noticeable in vascular surgery. A senior physician must therefore have a personnel policy that makes a hospital attractive to young doctors.
Advancing digitalization may be a solution. Intraoperative navigation techniques are already being used in vascular surgery. Other imaging techniques that improve error monitoring and data analysis are available or being developed. The speed of future technologies will always be kept in mind by a senior surgeon. It can prevent staff shortages while making treatment attractive to future physicians.
The right choice for the position of a senior physician is therefore elementary for your hospital or MVZ. We are able to screen the entire market with the help of our self-developed search software and can thus identify all relevant candidates for you.
