The Cardiosurgery department at Maria Middelares General Hospital is responsible for the operative treatment of heart diseases. If heart surgery is indicated, the cardiologist will refer the patient to the cardiosurgeon.

The Surgery Department is part of Surgery in Ghent and the Heart Centre of Ghent.

You are in good hands with the experts of our cardiac surgery team. Every year the department performs about 700 heart surgeries.

Our surgeons have extensive expertise and experience and always follow the latest international guidelines. We guarantee optimum quality; our physician-specialists rely on a network of paramedical specialists to offer patient-oriented treatments together.

Cardiac surgery also deals with the training of assistant physicians and has a strong focus on scientific research. Close and optimal cooperation with the GP is a priority for all our surgeons.
