Cardiology

The investigation and treatment of cardiovascular diseases is one of the main points of focus at our hospital. A large number of renowned cardiologists and vascular surgeons are available for your care. All diagnostic procedures at Rudolfinerhaus are performed in accordance with the most recent technical standards. An exact diagnosis permits the best possible treatment to relieve the burden on the heart and alleviate symptoms. Invasive cardiology permits cardiac catheter investigations (in cases of vascular constrictions or obstructions) as well as ablation of the heart (in cases of cardiac arrhythmia). Our interdisciplinary services include all preventive examinations, physiotherapy and nutritional therapy, stress counselling & psychocardiology, as well as collaborative treatments with specific specialists such as those for sleep medicine and experts for metabolic disorders and complemented by exercise and nutrition experts, stress counselling and psycho-cardiology.
