With us, everything revolves around your heart and the heart rhythm.

However, patients for whom such catheter ablation is not an option also benefit from our new treatment concept. From diagnosis to treatment (surgery), you are in the right place with us.
In our center we offer the full spectrum of modern cardiology. We also perform invasive procedures and operations in our new hybrid operating room. Aftercare following surgery is provided by a team of highly specialized physicians and nurses.

This is to ensure a very personal and high quality, exceptional treatment.
Passion, Experience and Expertise
Prof. Salzberg is internationally acclaimed for his experience in the field of surgical atrial fibrillation ablations. This was the impetus to found Swiss Ablation. His longtime mentor Dr. Wim-Jan van Boven (PhD) from Amsterdam, the man behind minimally invasive surgical methods, is his surgical partner. Together they have been operating for over 10 years with excellent results and many satisfied patients. The specialized electrophysiologist, Dr. Thomas Zerm is a very experienced cardiologist, and leads one of the largest electrophysiology centers in Hamburg. He participates in all our HearTeam conferences, where all patients are discussed together and it is decided which therapy will be applied - similar to a tumor board.
