Information for Patients
We offer our patients individually tailored surgical procedures depending on previous illnesses and findings. Coronary bypass operations are performed with or without a heart-lung machine, preferably with arterial bypasses. In heart valve surgery, we not only offer heart valve replacement and reconstruction but, above all, minimally invasive procedures for heart valve surgery. Together with our colleagues in cardiology, we perform catheter-interventional heart valve surgery, modern aortic surgery which includes endovascular techniques.
Particularly important is the cooperation with the referring colleagues. In the cardiological / cardiac surgery conferences, the findings are discussed together in order to find the right individual solution for each individual patient. Together with colleagues from the University Department of Cardiology and Angiology under the direction of Prof. Rüdiger Braun-Dullaeus, the concept of a "heart team" is practiced. The decision for a specific procedure is always made in close consultation between cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, so that the patients of the heart of Magdeburg benefit from modern integrated therapy concepts.
