AWARDS AND ACHIEVEMENTS

TOP German hospital 2016

The network of Gesundheit Nord hospitals, including Klinikum Links der Weser, was ranked among leading medical institutions in Germany according to Focus magazine. Focus evaluates hospitals according to such criteria as the number of successful operations, patients’ reviews, modern equipment, and the doctors' qualifications.


Certified as the Center for the chest pain treatment by the German Cardiac Surgery Society (DGK)

Links der Weser in Bremen is among 200 hospitals in Germany certified by the DGK. This confirms that doctors diagnose and treat the cause of pain in the breastbone in a short time.


CARDIOVASCULAR CENTER

The Center focuses on the treatment of all cardiovascular diseases in children and adults. The Cardiology, Cardiac Surgery Departments, Heart Catheterization Lab, and the Stroke Treatment Unit are located on the premises of the Center.

Cardiology and Angiology (vascular treatment)

The Center mainly specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases with a catheter. The laboratory for cardiac catheterization was opened in 1981.

The catheter (endovascular) surgery is a minimally invasive intervention with a thin tube that is inserted through the femoral, inguinal or carpal artery. The procedure does not require cuts of the sternum (breastbone), so a patient recovers in 1-2 days. A person feels no postoperative pain, and there are no scars left on the body.

Doctors conduct procedures in a special hybrid operating room. This is a modern room with all the necessary equipment to perform open and minimally invasive (through a catheter) heart operations.

Official statistics:

  • 8,000 cardiac catheterizations for diagnosis
  • 500 pacemakers installed
  • 1,200 TAVI procedures
  • 350 MitraClip procedures for the heart failure treatment.

Cardiosurgery Department

The Cardiosurgery Department started its work in 1983. In the same year, the doctors performed the first heart operation using a cardiopulmonary bypass.

Doctors at Links der Weser specialize in:

  • heart transplants
  • coronary arteries and heart valves surgeries
  • pacemaker implanting
  • coronary artery bypass surgery
  • treatment of congenital and acquired heart defects.

Annually, cardiac surgeons of the Department perform 2,100 operations. Doctors carry out the majority of interventions through minimally invasive incisions without opening the sternum. This technique reduces the time of the surgery and postoperative rehabilitation.

GYNECOLOGY AND OBSTETRICS DEPARTMENT

Pregnancy follow-up and childbirth

In 2016, Klinikum Links der Weser became the first hospital in Bremen by the number of 3,000 babies born.

Doctors of the Department monitor the women’s health and the proper development of the fetus. Experts perform heart ultrasound and Doppler exam (the study of blood vessels) of a mother and child in the womb. In case of developmental disorders, doctors eliminate them in time.

Childbirth is provided in the delivery wards with modern adjustable beds. Before childbirth, women are explained the methods of anesthesia, and the safest is chosen.

Obstetricians, anaesthesiologists and pediatricians are on 24/7 duty in the ward. The Obstetrics and Pediatric Resuscitation Departments are located in the adjacent premises. Therefore, in case of complications during childbirth or after them, the doctors are ready to immediate help.

Treatment of gynecological diseases

The doctors of the Department specialize in treating of uterine fibroids, malignant tumors and urinary incontinence.

Most of the surgeries performed in the Department are minimally invasive and organ-preserving. This means doctors perform interventions through small incisions (1-3 cm) or without them (through the vagina). After minimally invasive procedures, recovery is faster and less painful than after open surgery. Surgeons perform the removal of the uterus or fallopian tubes extremely rarely, only after a thorough diagnosis.

Every year, gynecological surgeons perform 2,200 operations.
