If you have problems with your heart you will be in good hands at the RTC. The RTC works very closely with the Clinic and Policlinic for Cardiac Surgery of Rostock led by Prof. Gustav Steinhoff who is recognized not only as an expert in cardiac surgery, but as a pioneer in novel stem cell therapy.
If you suffer from heart disease the clinic of Rostock can help you using the novel method of stem cell therapy under special requirements. More than 200 patients could be successfully helped since 2001 and the cost were covered by the health insurance funds. Contact your treating physician for treatment possibilities. If you have more questions call us or send us an email, please. We will be happy to help you to get detailed information.

We are currently conducting a clinical study on stem cell therapy. The aim is to get a approval for routine application of this method at other clinics. In detail, this study is about the treatment of patients after a myocardial infarction with stem cells during a bypass surgery. As patient you could participate in this study under the following requirements: you had a myocardial infarction and you need a bypass surgery. This study will benefit you in two ways: on the one hand you can receive an innovative treatment and on the other hand you can support the launch a novel therapy which will potentially make a long-term healing of all cardiac patients possible in the future. Participation in this study is certainly voluntary and you will certainly receive an equally optimal treament if you choose not to participate in this study.

We will be happy to informe you in detail. Please, contact us.
