Department of Cardiology
The Department of Cardiology offers the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients with cardiovascular diseases. The department specializes in drug therapy and modern interventional cardiac catheter-based procedures. Patients with heart failure, myocardial infarction, heart valve pathologies, and arrhythmias are regularly admitted to the medical facility. The department's medical team has more than 300 employees, for whom it is important that each patient receives the most effective treatment in comfortable conditions. The department has 144 beds. Cardiologists admit about 7,500 inpatients annually. More than 20,000 patients receive medical care on an outpatient basis. The department is rightly proud of the numerous certificates of the German Cardiac Society (DGK) in treating acute coronary syndrome, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation, as well as transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and the MitraClip procedure.
