The Athens Euroclinic Cardiothoracic Surgery Department is staffed by a team of cardiothoracic surgeons, anesthesiologists specializing in cardiothoracic anesthesiology, and perfusionists.
The Department’s medical team has extensive experience in this field, having performed a large number of cardiothoracic surgical procedures. The excellent results in cardiothoracic cases are due to the top scientific training of the physicians, the support offered by the ICU medical staff, the full intraoperative monitoring and the perioperative nursing care.
The Department covers the entire range of cardiothoracic procedures, specializing in arterial reperfusion of the two internal mammary arteries and the radial artery, surgical valve repair, and surgical repair of acute and chronic aneurysms.
The qualified nursing staff offer top-level healthcare services, fully meeting the increased needs of cardiothoracic patients.
