Dear patients and referring physicians!

I would like to welcome you to Swiss Surgery, an internationally recognized interdisciplinary team of experts from various surgical disciplines!

Here you will find information about myself, my career and about “EurAsia Heart – A Swiss Medical Foundation”.

Thanks to decades of experience in the field of cardiovascular surgery, I have been able to gain a correspondingly rich experience with more than 11,500 operations. This enables me to perform even the most difficult operations on the heart, the aorta in the chest and abdominal area, the heart valves and the coronary vessels with the greatest possible safety for the patient.

After many years at the University Hospital of Zurich or as Medical Director of the Cardiac Surgery Department of the University Hospital of Giessen-Marburg, I am able to provide optimal care for patients with cardiovascular surgical diseases. My experience is complemented by my surgical work in 14 countries in Eastern Europe and Asia, carried out over the last 20 years in the course of the “EurAsia Heart – A Swiss Medical Foundation”, which I founded, and which includes adult surgery, paediatric cardiac surgery and also surgery for congenital heart defects in adults.

I am convinced and at the same time pleased that my patients from Switzerland and abroad, whom I am currently treating at the Hirslanden Klinik Im Park and as a consultant at the University Hospital of Zurich, can also benefit from my broad international activities in complex cardiovascular surgery.

We cordially welcome patients of all insurance classes!!

I am at your disposal for a personal consultation.

Prof. Paul Vogt
