University Hospital RWTH Aachen
Department of Thoracic, Vascular Surgery and Cardiac Surgery
The Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery offers the entire spectrum of cardiothoracic surgery, including heart transplantation and the use of artificial heart systems. A special focus is on the development and the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques. Worthwhile emphasizing are the modern bypass surgery, cardiac valve repair surgery and the surgery to regain the normal rhythm.
