About us

The Red Cross Hospital Cardiology Center Frankfurt offers the complete spectrum of in- and outpatient care in the fields of cardiology, electrophysiology and angiology. Our institution is among the most long-standing German centers for interventional cardiology with over 50,000 minimally invasive catheter inventions within the last 20 years.

The connection of non-invasive outpatient diagnostics at two locations in Frankfurt and one location each in Offenbach and in Bad Vilbel as well as inpatient therapy at the Department of Cardiology at the Red Cross Hospital including an intensive care unit (chest pain unit) permits an individual and comprehensive treatment of our patients.

Early detection of arteriosclerosis, ultrasound and ultrasound-doppler examinations of the heart and vessels, computed tomography, detection of cardiac arrhythmias, syncopal diagnostics, detection of cardiovascular diseases, electrophysiological examinations of the heart, complex percutaneous coronary interventions with stent implantation, acute treatment of emergencies (heart attack) 24/7, stem cell therapy after heart attack, catheter-assisted implantation of heart valves, catheter-assisted repair of septal defects, catheter-assisted auricular repair, catheter-guided ablation for cardiac arrhythmias, pacemaker treatment and after-care, cardiac resynchronization therapy, catheter-guided dilation of the carotids, renal arteries and pelvic/leg arteries with stent implantation, catheter-guided renal artery denervation.
