About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Сardiac Surgery at the University Hospital Erlangen specializes in the surgical treatment of end-stage heart failure, treatment with the use of mechanical hemodynamic support systems and heart transplant. The Department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Michael Weyand. According to the Focus magazine rating of 2017, the Department of Сardiac Surgery at the University Hospital Erlangen ranks among the top German departments specializing in cardiac surgery!

The Department annually performs about 1,600 operations on heart and adjacent vessels. About 1,100 of them are open heart operations with the use of a cardiopulmonary bypass. The University Hospital Erlangen has 3 operating rooms for providing surgical treatment. Two teams of surgeons work around the clock and are ready for surgical emergency at any time. 

The physicians of the Department under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Michael Weyand provide heart surgery that involves the use of the latest techniques and all donor blood sparing methods. As far as possible, there is used patient’s own blood that was taken before the surgery. There are also used special blood sparing drugs (e.g. tranexamic acid). After the surgery the lost blood goes through a special filtration and is administered into the patient’s body again. Therefore, about a half of all operations in the University Hospital Erlangen are performed without blood donation.

The patient care is carried out in a close cooperation with the Departments of Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and Anesthesiology at the University Hospital Erlangen as well as with other specialized hospitals and rehabilitation clinics.
