About the department keyboard_arrow_down

According to the Focus magazine rating of 2017, the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the University Hospital Jena ranks among the best Heart Surgery Centers in Germany!  

The Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the University Hospital Jena offers the entire spectrum of adult cardiac surgery. Special attention is paid to minimally invasive cardiac surgery, primarily to minimally invasive heart valve surgery. In the field of thoracic surgery, preference is given to minimally invasive treatment involving the use of videoscopic devices. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Torsten Doenst.

The medical team of the department performs a variety of heart valve surgical procedures without dissecting the thorax (i.e. without sternotomy), as well as a large number of coronary artery bypass surgeries. A new focus, in the development of which the specialists of the department are taking an active part, is minimally invasive tricuspid valve surgery. Thanks to the innovative methods developed in this field, the patients who were previously considered inoperable have a new hope. In addition, the department specializes in complex surgical interventions, such as interventions on several valves (technicaly more demanding ones) and heart base reconstruction in severe endocarditis. A completely new possibility is the performance of the entire coronary artery bypass surgery via mini-thoracotomy.

In the field of thoracic surgery, the preference is mostly given to videoscope-assisted minimally invasive surgery. With the use of robotic surgery, the service range of the department has recently been expanded. Currently, the so-called VATS lobectomy can also be performed with the use of the DaVinci robotic system as the RATS-lobectomy (robot-assisted lobectomy).
