During anesthesia we keep you safe.


This credo for any anesthetic given nowadays is especially significant for patients with heart diseases. At our Institute for Anesthesiology, managed by Prof. Dr. Uwe Schirmer, it is therefore attributed maximum importance every single time anesthesia is required.

We have done everything to ensure that we can do justice to our claim of providing the greatest possible safety during anesthesia: with a state-of-the-art anesthetic which is tailor-made to suit your heart disease and any previous conditions you may have.
