German Heart Center Munich - Departments
Department of Adult and Pediatric Radiology, Nuclear Medicine
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Radiology, Nuclear Medicine offers the full range of highly specialized tests of the cardiovascular system using radioisotopes and ionizing radiation. The department began its work on July 1, 1973, and therefore it is proud of its rich experience and outstanding performance results. The medical facility was one of the first to start using digital subtraction angiography (back in the 1980s). A distinctive feature of the department is its high level of qualification in the field of radioisotope diagnostics for congenital heart defects in children. The department's specialists have advanced equipment for examining the cardiovascular system in adults and children, as well as for carrying out all the necessary diagnostic procedures before, during, and after surgical treatment. Most of the examinations are conducted on an outpatient basis. Advanced diagnostic equipment guarantees patients a minimum dose of radiation during the examination that will not have a negative impact on their health.
Department of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Defect Treatment
The Department of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Defect Treatment offers the full range of diagnostic services and effective conservative treatments for general heart pathologies and congenital heart defects in children of all age groups. The department also provides medical care for adult patients with congenital heart defects (EMAH certification from the German Cardiac Society). The scope of tasks assigned to the department's specialists includes catheter-based interventional procedures. They perform about 800 diagnostic and 300 therapeutic interventions annually. With over 40 years of successful clinical experience, the department holds a leading position in the area of its specialization not only in Germany but also in Europe. The cardiologists at the medical facility provide top-class medical care to young patients while surrounding them with care and showing a friendly attitude. The department provides play areas, and clown shows are held weekly, thanks to which children feel as comfortable as possible and do not experience any fears about the upcoming treatment.
Department of Cardiology
The Department of Cardiology diagnoses and treats the full range of diseases of the heart and circulatory system. The department specializes in treating inflammatory diseases of the heart and large blood vessels, heart arrhythmias, and heart valve pathologies, as well as heart failure and arterial hypertension. The very latest catheter-based technologies are used in the diagnostics and treatment, which, in many cases, allow a patient to avoid traumatic surgical treatment. The specialists at the medical facility also admit patients with acute coronary syndrome. The department has a Chest Pain Unit certified in accordance with the requirements of the German Cardiac Society (DGK) to treat such patients. Cardiologists cooperate closely with cardiac surgeons, thanks to which the specialists jointly develop the most effective treatment regimens. The department ranks among the largest Heart Centers in Europe and employs brilliant professionals with long clinical experience.

The department enjoys a reputation as one of the leading medical facilities of this kind in Germany, so patients from all over the world regularly come here. Pediatric cardiac surgeons annually perform more than 600 cardiovascular interventions. Each clinical case is considered at a regular board meeting, during which the optimal treatment tactics are determined. It is worth noting that the department is one of the few in Germany that operates on the basis of its own department at the university, which provides access to the very latest research results and the best training for medical students.
Department of Cardiac Surgery
The Department of Cardiac Surgery offers the full range of modern surgical treatments for cardiovascular diseases. The department enjoys a reputation as a leading medical facility specializing in treating acquired heart defects. The department's surgeons perform about 2,800 cardiac surgical interventions every year, including especially complex ones. Cardiac surgeons most often perform operations for heart defects and pathologies of the coronary arteries, heart valves, and aorta. All operations are performed in state-of-the-art operating rooms with advanced equipment and high-precision monitoring systems, which make surgical treatment not only the most effective but also the safest for a patient. Sparing, minimally invasive techniques are widely used in clinical practice, and some operations are performed without the use of a heart-lung machine. After the operation, the patient receives proper care for a rapid recovery.
