Cardiac Surgery

With the exception of heart transplants which, for obvious reasons, are not offered in our portfolio, we have undertaken all of the lines of treatment that exist in modern Cardiac Surgery: coronary surgery with and without extracorporeal circulation, conventional valve surgery.

complex mitral repairs, aortic valve repair surgery, aortic root aneurysm surgery with valve conservation and endovascular surgery with the insertion of endoprosthesis in the thoracic aorta (ascending, arch and descending).

This activity is carried out in a fully-equipped operating theatre that has the latest complex monitoring systems including echocardiography equipment for the systematic control of transesophageal echocardiograms in valve surgery.


The Arrhythmias Unit of the Heart Area cares for patients with heart rhythm disorders. It is divided into two specific areas.
