The Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) has appointed Prof. Dr. Stephan Schubert (45) new Director of the Clinic for Pediatric Cardiology at the Herz- und Diabeteszentrum NRW (HDZ NRW) in Bad Oeynhausen. The experienced pediatric cardiologist and researcher is currently a Senior Physician and in charge of the cardiac catheter laboratory at the German Heart Center Berlin. He is also a W3 Professor of Interventional Cardiology at the Charité Berlin.
Following the departure last year of pediatric cardiologist Prof. Dr. Matthias Peuster from the Clinic after just 9 months, the prospects for staff and patients at the Center for Congenital Heart Defects in Bad Oeynhausen have therefore recovered rapidly, as well as extremely positively. During the transition period, and for the second time in his career, the Clinic for Pediatric Cardiology was managed by PD Dr. Kai Thorsten Laser. „Thanks to additional support from our colleagues at the German Heart Center Berlin, we were able to guarantee that the care of our youngest patients continued smoothly“, Dr. Overlack told us, expressly thanking the Chief Physician in Berlin, Prof. Dr. Felix Berger. In order to support the Clinic for Pediatric Cardiology, especially with interventions in the cardiac catheter laboratory, Prof. Schubert has been a regular visitor to Bad Oeynhausen since the beginning of this year. He will take up his position as Chief Physician on 1 July 2020.
Patients from all over Germany come to the Pediatric Heart Center and Center for Congenital Heart Defects in Bad Oeynhausen for inpatient treatment and follow-up outpatient care. All equipment at the Center is state-of-the-art, and it provides the entire range of care for newborns, children, adolescents and adults with congenital heart defects, including heart transplants and artificial assist devices. In collaboration with the Center‘s second Chief Physician, cardiac surgeon Dr. Eugen Sandica, approx. 1,000 interventions for the treatment of congenital heart defects are performed every year.
