Minimally invasive diagnostics and therapy of diseases of the cardiovascular system
Prof. Dr. med. Jörg Otto Schwab diagnoses and treats disorders of the cardiovascular system. One area of focus is the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, including telemonitoring (remote diagnostics and monitoring), as well as their catheter-directed treatment (ablation). In addition, the experienced cardiologist implants cardiac pacemakers as well as implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), and he carries out patient aftercare. If necessary, Prof. Schwab makes use of magnetic resonance imaging for diagnostic purposes; the technology is also used for special, functional examinations of the heart. A unique feature of his treatment is his close cooperation with the Beta Klinik radiology department, which makes extensive MRI examinations possible for patients with cardiac pacemakers or ICDs.
