About the department

The cardiology department with the chest pain unit at Academic Hospital DRK Berlin-Kopenick is responsible for the entire heart and cardiovascular system spectrum, including emergency conditions. The department closely cooperates with the department of cardiology and cardiology of Charite University Hospital to conduct the latest clinical studies. Doctors are mainly involved in the following trials: Secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, Study to evaluate the safety of the SD01 ICD electrode, Cardiac contractility modulation (CCM), etc. The academic activity and high doctors' professionalism ensure the best possible treatment outcome. Furthermore, the department is a certified facility by the German Society for Cardiology and performs active medical training in interventional cardiology and rhythmology. Patients have top-rated medical services along with comfortable staying during the treatment.

The department's primary focus is coronary heart diseases, valvular conditions, cardiac arrhythmias, and cardiac insufficiency. In addition, particular attention is given to interventional cardiology and minimally invasive diagnostic and cardiac procedures.
