Cardiology and Angiology

Our two Departments of Cardiology and Angiology in Freiburg and Bad Krozingen provide the whole spectrum of diagnostic and treatment services of the heart and arterial vessel diseases. We treat heart valve diseases, arrhythmias, aortic diseases and cardiac coagulation problems. Our physicians closely cooperate with specialists from other clinics of the Medical Center - University of Freiburg.

Our doctors and nurses are proficient in the latest medical techniques and have the necessary experience and technical equipment at their disposal to offer each patient individual and comprehensive treatment. We look after and advise our patients during the entire treatment process – from admission and diagnosis to therapy and aftercare. As a university institution, we offer the expertise of our colleagues from the Medical Center - University of Freiburg, ensuring that our patients receive the highest quality treatment available.

Besides general invasive and noninvasive cardiological treatment, the main focus of our heart center is the treatment of patients suffering from acute heart attacks and chronic coronary heart diseases with catheter technology.

Our team of experts for treating structural and congenital cardiovascular diseases (the ISAH team - Intervention for Structural and Congenital Cardiovascular Diseases) ensures that patients receive the best possible treatment.

Thanks to close interdisciplinary cooperation of our experts in cardiology, cardiovascular surgery, and pediatric cardiology, our ISAH team (Intervention bei strukturellen und angeborenen Herz-Kreislauferkrankungen = intervention for structural and congenital cardiovascular diseases) provides patients with structural and congenital cardiovascular diseases with the best possible treatment.
Especially high-risk heart valve patients (with aortic stenosis, mitral valve insufficiency, patients with artrial fibrillation and increased risk of bleeding under anticoagulation, resistent hypertension as well as patients with congenital or acquired heart failure) will profit from the latest innovative therapy options.
