About

Prof. Dr. Roberto Corti is a specialist cardiologist at the Hirslanden Cardiac Hospital. In recent years, the Cardiac Hospital, located in Zurich, has developed as one of the leading establishments in the field of the innovative treatment of cardiac conditions.

The Cardiac Hospital is set apart, thanks both to its promising procedures in the field of modern invasive cardiology and to its outstanding patient care. For this reason, the hospital has been awarded four stars and the diploma, “Recognized for Excellence”, which designates it as is one of the leading hospitals in the health system.

Prof. Corti and his 7-member medical team, consisting of internationally renowned cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, are set apart thanks to their outstanding interdisciplinary collaboration. Here, it is not the individual specialist field which is the focus, but the best possible treatment for the patient. In order to optimise the interconnection between cardiology and cardiac surgery, the Hirslanden Cardiac Hospital, in collaboration with the medical practitioners, has developed a hybrid operating theatre of a kind, which has only been found hitherto in a few large university hospitals. This up to date operating theatre is equipped with the world's first hybrid imaging system. Here, 3-D ultrasound and X-ray images are synchronised in real time and these provide unparalleled support for complex cardiac procedures.

Following his specialist training in general internal medicine (2004) and cardiology (2006), Prof. Corti specialised, in particular, in catheter-based cardiac valve treatment. After intense training in this area, he was awarded an honorary professorship by the University of Zurich in 2011. Here, he collaborated closely with his present colleagues and the cardiac surgeon, Prof. Gruenenfelder. Longstanding collaboration in a well-practised and experienced team facilitates treatment of the highest standard.

The team performs several hundred procedures on cardiac valves annually. catheter-based cardiac valve treatment is employed more and more frequently in the process. This enables the minimally invasive replacement of defective cardiac valves. Even the most seriously ill individuals and patients, for whom open cardiac surgery would not be possible, can be successfully treated using this gentle technique.

Prof. Corti and his team also provide the entire range of up to date invasive cardiology in their hospital. From straightforward right up to complex cardiac problems, all conditions are treated here with the highest level of professional expertise.
