SANA CARDIAC SURGERY STUTTGART The Sana Cardiac Surgery Stuttgart is one of the designated competence centers for cardiac medicine in Germany. With around ten operations a day, they are one of the three heart surgeries with the highest number of cases in Baden-Württemberg and among these three, they are the only one that offers all forms of heart surgery treatment, from popular medicine to special surgeries (with the exception of transplantations) for all age groups from newborns to over 90-year-old patient offers. Top medicine is their maxim, whereby they combine modern heart medicine with a warm, human atmosphere. Highly qualified medical and nursing teams as well as specially trained physiotherapists work in their clinic. All of their teams have many years of experience. This is the basis on which they can offer an optimally coordinated therapy for each individual patient. You are in good hands with them. In permanent patient surveys, Sana Cardiac Surgery Stuttgart consistently achieves high values in the areas of patient satisfaction and recommendation rate.

For patients suffering from acute heart attack, there is a 24-hour on-call team at your disposal which can immediately treat those patients in the cathlab. In the discipline of electrophysiology, which means diagnostics and therapy of cardiac arrhythmias, this clinic is the main center in the center of Stuttgart. Due to the close organizational teamwork with and proximity to the surgical clinic Sana Herzchirurgie Stuttgart, are able to perform even high-risk procedures on the coronary vessels. Since 2008, they have placed catheter-conducted aortic valve replacement during hybrid surgery together with their heart surgeons. This clinic has got the full authorisation to conduct continuing education for certification in cardiology and intensive care.

Cardiac surgery today is much more than the classic bypass operation. The range of services of the clinic includes complex heart valve reconstructions, different forms of heart valve replacement including the Ross operation as well as combined interventions from bypass and valve operations. Other areas of specialization are arrhythmia surgery, surgery of the main artery (aortic surgery) and the therapy of congenital heart defects, including pediatric and neonatal heart surgery. They attach great importance to the further development of modern and innovative surgical techniques. For example, the minimally invasive procedures that are gentler on the patient have become indispensable. Compared to the conventional method of completely opening the chest, the patients are mobile again more quickly and pain-free after the minimally invasive procedure involving several small skin incisions. CENTER FOR CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS (ZAHF) STUTTGART Surgery for Congenital Heart Defects and Pediatric Heart Surgery Welcome to the Center for Congenital Heart Defects (ZAHF) Stuttgart. In the following sections, they will provide you with initial important information on congenital heart defects in children and adults, as well as an overview of our range of services. Heart defects are the most common congenital malformations in humans. In Germany, around 6,000 newborns are affected each year. Due to enormous advances in prenatal diagnostics, a congenital heart defect can often be detected before birth, so that the affected children have a significantly higher chance of survival, even with the most severe heart defects, thanks to optimized birth and treatment planning. The surgery of congenital heart defects has developed into a special field within cardiac surgery, so that only a few cardiac surgery centers perform these procedures regularly and are considered a certified center for surgery of congenital heart defects.
