The Cardiac Surgery Department treats patients who require a surgical correction.
Although many patients can be treated using catheter techniques some patients will be referred to the Cardiac Surgery Department for heart surgery.
The department assures the surgical treatment of cardiac diseases in adults and mainly treats heart rhythm problems in children and adolescents.
Minimally invasive techniques are used daily for all aspects of cardiac surgery in order to reduce the surgical trauma and to offer patients a better cosmetic result.
