The following pages will introduce you to the medical team of the HeartClinic Lucerne, which is located in one of the most beautiful cities in the heart of Switzerland.
Our team of heart specialists with international reputation will take care of you, whether all you need is a check-up, a second opinion or a heart operation. Together, we find the optimal medical strategy for you!
Each cardiologist at the HeartClinic Lucerne has a special field of interest with extensive subspeciality training
We offer high-end non-invasive heart imaging techniques like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT), nuclear stress tests, 2D/3D echocardiography, transoesophageal echocardiography and stress-echocardiography. Of course, we only use the latest generation medical equipment available.
In cases, where heart vessels may be blocked, we perform heart catheterization procedures under local anaesthesia and implant stents (which are a sort of a mesh) to unblock the vessel in the same session. Thereby, heart catheterization via the arm (radial access route) is our specialty.
5% of the population over the age of 75 years, is expected to develop a narrow heart valve (aortic valve). We are specialised in replacing this heart valve through a minimally-invasive approach via a 5-10mm cut through the groin vessel, without a big operation. This procedure is called „Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement“ – TAVR. (Please be aware, that not all patients will qualify for this procedure and some will need to undergo conventional open heart surgery for aortic stenosis!).
Apart from these highly specialised procedures we offer all kinds of general cardiology examinations (like ECG, 24h blood pressure and 24h ECG monitoring, treadmill test) and treatments (e.g. for arrhythmia like atrial fibrillation).
Check-ups is one of our main focuses.
We check your risk of developing a heart disease in the future (considering risk factors like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, overweight, smoking or genetic predisposition). If we find one or more of these risk factors, we will recommend strategies and therapies for you to prevent any damage to your heart in the future. In many cases, severe conditions like heart attacks may be avoided.
If you are uncertain about the recommended treatment suggested by your cardiologist, you might request a second opinion from our specialist team :
1. Contact us via a secured email account to give us a first impression of what you exactly need.
2. Next, you can upload all available medical reports on a secured Swiss email account.
3. If needed, we can arrange an appointment in our clinic and make further recommendations based on your previous reports and with additional examinations in our own institution.
