FOCUS Clinic review

The Clinic for Cardiology and Pneumology at the University Medical Centre Göttingen was once again ranked amongst the top clinics nationally in the FOCUS Clinic review 2016.
In order to obtain the ranking, a total of 15,000 doctors across Germany were asked to nominate the clinic they believed to be the best. In addition, official quality-control reports and questionnaires within each department were evaluated and incorporated into the decision making process.

Particularly important focus areas for the Clinic for Cardiology and Pneumology, led by Professor Dr. Gerd Hasenfuß, include the treatment of cardiac insufficiency, heart disease and interventional therapies for cardiac valve disease. Undertaking an average of 350 minimally invasive cardiac value surgeries per year, the Clinic is a national leader in the field. This rich experience is distinguished through an especially low complication rate and a very high quality of treatment.

As Partner Site of the German Center for Cardiovascular Disease (Deutsche Zentrum für Herzkreislaufforschung), and with their recent extension of the Collaborative Research Centre for Cardiac Insufficiency (Sonderforschungsbereich 1002), the clinic is also home to an excellent academic reputation.
