Department of cardiac surgery
The cardiac surgery department at Helios Hospital Krefeld provides medical care for diseases of the heart and blood vessels. The department uses a hybrid operating room to treat pathological heart conditions - a fully equipped operating room and a cardiac catheterisation laboratory. The interventions carried out here focus on innovative, minimally invasive procedures. The department specialises in pacemakers and defibrillators and works closely with fellow residents and referring hospitals. The department is also one of the few in the world where Ozaki surgery is performed, an innovative method for treating heart valve defects.
The department's medical team has extensive experience in the treatment of valvular heart disease, heart failure, and aneurysms. The range of operations includes the care of patients with dilations and chronic ruptures of large vessels and, in particular, emergency care for patients with sudden ruptures and damage to the vascular wall. In any clinical case, doctors carefully weigh the therapeutic and methodological possibilities and work closely with specialists from other departments.
