Welcome to the Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery (HTV) at the Clinic of Braunschweig!
The department of surgery at the clinic in Braunschweig was established in 1990. It is treating diseases of heart, thorax and the vascular system (HTV). Mostly we cure calcareous coronary arteries, heart valve diseases, malicious pulmonary diseases and calcinosis and/or aneurysm of arteries in the lower abdomen, pelvic or the throat areas. All of these considerably worsen the patient’s quality of life and he fears an early death. In order to restore the patient’s health as well as possible, we - a professional team of nurses, doctors and perfusionists - take care of our patient’s needs.
We are closely cooperating with cardiologists, anesthesiologists (Cardial Center Braunschweig) and other specialists and departments of our clinic, in order to provide an optimal treatment to our patients who are often well advanced in years and suffer from multiple diseases. In particular, we are cooperating with the clinic’s radiologists and oncologists in cases of circulatory disorders that affect legs and head as well as in cases of a malicious pulmonary disease. Furthermore, we’re working closely with many other clinics, doctors and medical specialists within a radius of 100 km, in order to harmonize the period before and after the hospitalization.
On the following pages we’re going to provide you a closer insight into our clinic, no matter if you want to get some pieces of information for yourself, as a patient’s relative or as a doctor who is looking for a clinic which could take over the further diagnostic investigation or therapy of one of your patients.
We also would like to ask you to give us some suggestions, so we could match it with your individual needs.
