PSYCHOCARDIOLOGY
GERMAN HEART CENTER MUNICH

We help patients with congenital heart defects

and hereditary diseases with cardiac involvement (i.e. morbus fabry).

It is undisputed: Psychological distress can cause heart problems and vice versa. At the Clinic for Congenital Heart Defects and Pediatric Cardiology, psychocardiology is an important component within our holistic treatment approach for patients with congenital heart defects. We foster science and practice to pioneer in the largely unexplored field of psychocardiology for people affected by congenital heart defects. Our findings have been published in numerous publications. Learn more about our team, our research and our offerings below.
