Patient testimonials:

I had a liver tumor but I couldn’t undergo surgery. The IR team of UHH gave the solution! I was discharged only one day after the ablation of my tumor and now I am free of disease for two years!


I had severe pain in both my legs, even at rest. After angioplasty I can walk for more than 2km non-stop.
