German Heart Centre Munich

The German Heart Centre Munich has gone down in history as a paragon for the consolidation of state of the art medical treatment of cardiovascular diseases at one centralized location. Since its foundation in 1972/73 as the first heart center in Europe, it has served as a model for other institutions numerous times.
The new medical concept of treating patients of all ages with all types of cardiovascular disease at one facility has gained acceptance and has been applied to other areas of medicine.
The guiding principle of the hospital is to consolidate at one location the various medical branches required for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disorders, thus providing optimal patient care through constant close interdisciplinary cooperation.
The hospital thus unites the following departments and institutes:

  • Department of Cardiovascular Surgery
  • Department of Cardiovascular Diseases
  • Department of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Defects
  • Institute of Anesthesiology
  • Institute of Laboratory Medicine 
  • Institute of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery
The Department of Cardiovascular Surgery is one of the large specialized centers in Germany, facilitating 2000 on-pump operations, i.e. with heart-lung machine and approx. 550 operations for congenital heart defects annually. We regard ourselves as specialists in a competence center that guarantees optimal medical care for patients.
The image of the university hospital department is reflected in three pillars:
clinical management,
patient-related research 
Commission to teach.

Department of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Defects
For nearly 30 years, the Department of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Defects has delivered a top-rate medical performance at the highest international standard. Patients of all ages with congenital heart defects receive around the clock medical care from very experienced specialists, including a team of pediatricians, pediatric cardiologists and cardiologists.
Performing more than 550 heart operations in children and adolescents, more than 400 of which are on-pump, approx. 200 in neonates and infants as well as about 800 cardiac catheterizations annually including 300 interventions, our department is leading the way in Germany and ranks among the best European heart centers of its kind.
