Heart surgery procedures at Schoen Clinic

Specialists for heart surgery procedures and operations

In our clinic, we carry out all heart surgery procedures for adults (with the exception of heart transplants). Areas of focus in this are bypass and heart valve surgery, and especially, heart valve-preserving surgery. With the aid of the interdisciplinary cooperation of the clinics for vascular surgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, spinal surgery, orthopaedics and rehabilitation medicine at Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth, the holistic care of patients from admission of the patient to completion of the rehabilitation is possible in-house.

The holistic care of patients who have had heart operations in one complete heart and vascular centre is a concept that is, so far, unique in Germany. Our international team of heart surgery specialists uses the most modern and currently up-to-date surgical techniques.

Medical care

Completion of heart surgery procedures in adults

In the clinic for heart surgery, all heart surgery procedures for adults are carried out. The focus is on:

  • Coronary bypass surgery in arteriosclerosis (“vessel calcification”) - “Widespread disease number 1”
  • Heart valve replacement and heart valve reconstruction in the event of degeneration, calcification and inflammation of the heart valve
  • Surgery of the aorta and of the aortic arch
  • Cardiac rhythm surgery
  • Corrections of congenital heart defects in adults
  • Care of the carotid artery and heart surgery procedures in one session

In the clinic for heart surgery, patients can receive in-house holistic care from the operation to the completion of rehabilitation.

Unique concept in Germany

Heart surgery and, in particular, the specialities of vascular surgery and neurosurgery cooperate closely under one roof. Through the seamless cooperation, competences are pooled and the loss of time and information is avoided. Through this, our patients avoid duplicate examinations, waiting times and troublesome journeys.
