About the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at University Hospital Halle (Saale)

The Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the University Hospital Halle (Saale) covers the entire range of top-class medical services in this field. Special attention is paid to minimally invasive operations, which, along with the optimal functional result, ensure minimal traumatization, fast recovery and the absence of a cosmetic defect. The optimal type of therapy is selected in collaboration with the specialists from all the necessary related disciplines and adapts to the specific clinical indications of the patient. The department is headed by PD Dr. med. Britt Hofmann.

The department has a home monitoring system for patients with implanted pacemaker or defibrillator. Such a system is called telecardiology. The advantage of this type of therapy is convenience for the patient. With its help, the doctors have the opportunity to constantly monitor the health of their patients.
