The patient was treated in this clinic

The general impression of the clinic is pleasantly surprising. I personally visited an endocrinologist and helped me solve my problem, I also turned to a pediatric therapist and vaccinated my child, the translator helped me a lot while I was in the clinic, and I communicated with the doctor very well thanks to her. Общее впечатление о клинике приятно удивляет.
Я лично была у эндокринолога и мне помогли решить мою проблему, так же я обращалась к детскому терапевту и делала ребенку прививки, переводчик мне очень помогла во время нахождения в клинике, с доктором отлично общались благодаря ей.

Interventional Cardiology Department

San Donato cardiologists specialize in endovascular operations for the treatment of heart and vessel diseases. Surgeons perform them using a thin and long catheter without skin incisions. The recovery period after such a procedure is much easier compared with open surgeries and lasts only 1-2 days.

Coronary angioplasty


Angioplasty is a procedure to treat narrowed or obstructed arteries of the heart. There are 2 types of angioplasty — balloon surgery and stenting.

Cardiologists perform balloon operation with a small balloon placed in the vessel to increase the amount of blood flowing through the artery. After the procedure doctors put out the balloon.

Stenting is performed with a metal or plastic tube called a stent to increase artery permeability. A stent stays in the vessels for at least 10 years.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)


This is a minimally invasive procedure to replace a heart valve. Usually, doctors carry out a sternotomy (chest opening) to implant a new valve, but TAVI can be done with a small puncture or incision.

Cardiologists insert a catheter with an artificial valve in a vessel. Doctors open the implant like an “umbrella” near the flaps of the old valve and fixate it there. It is an image-guided operation allowing doctors precisely to control the valve movement through the vessels.

Arrhythmology Department

According to the San Donato data, the Arrhythmology Department is the best in Europe to treat cardiac arrhythmia.

There are 45 hospital beds and 12 twenty-four-hour ECG monitoring devices with telemedicine in the department. ECG allows to connect patients with their physicians at any time.

3 operating rooms are equipped with modern devices including the latest X-ray systems. They produce less X-ray emission than previous models and are safer for patients.

Doctors specialize in the following procedures:

  • radiofrequency catheter ablation
  • pacemaker insertion
  • defibrillator implantation
  • cardiac resynchronization therapy to manage heart failure.
