The Centre for Cardiac Surgery at Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth has been offering modern care in the field of adult cardiac surgery for more than 13 years now and enjoys an excellent reputation even beyond the borders of Bavaria.

Our highly qualified team covers the complete range of care in cardiac surgery for adults – from coronary bypass surgery (with and without a heart-lung machine), surgery of the aorta and cardiac rhythm surgery to the correction of congenital heart defects. We also have particular expertise in minimally invasive aortic valve replacements and valve-preserving reconstructions.

Surgery on the heart is a serious intervention. We thus place great value on a family atmosphere and personally ensure that your stay in Vogtareuth is as pleasant as possible for you. This includes precise and comprehensive diagnostics as well as sound advice for the upcoming operation and highly qualified medical care before and after the operation.

Cardiac surgery at the highest level

According to the German magazine Focus Health, our Centre for Cardiac Surgery on the Baltic Sea is one of the best facilities for heart surgery in Germany. You can rely on the high medical quality of your treatment at our centre.

Modern treatment for an aortic aneurysm

Thanks to our close cooperation with the Vascular System Centre at Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth, we are able to offer state-of-the-art procedures in the treatment of aortic aneurysms for all anatomical areas. Precise imaging plays a decisive role in accurate diagnosis and assessment of the course of the disease. For this purpose, we have the latest medical equipment at Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth, which enables us to use advanced methods such as transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography including 3D imaging, X-rays, CT and MRI (in cooperation with the Centre for Radiology).  

Minimally invasive bypass surgery on the beating heart

Minimally invasive isolated bypass surgery on the beating heart (off-pump) represents a gentle alternative for interventions on the coronary artery system, where previously the immobilised heart had to be “bridged” with the heart-lung machine. Our experienced cardiac surgeons have extensive expertise in this area and perform these interventions in a highly professional manner under certain conditions.
For you as a patient, this means avoiding complications and a faster recovery from your heart surgery.

Maintaining instead of replacing heart valves

If you require a heart valve-preserving reconstruction, you are in the best of hands with our specialists. At Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth, valve-preserving, reconstructive procedures with a reconstruction rate of over 90 per cent dominate, especially in the case of leaking mitral, aortic or tricuspid valves. This puts us in a leading position worldwide. If the aortic valve needs to be replaced, this is done using a minimally invasive approach.
