Institute Presentation

The Silesian Center for Heart Diseases (SCCS in short) in Zabrze is a public hospital affiliated with Medical University of Silesia. It is a modern, highly specialized heart center, recognized nationwide and internationally for its outstanding clinical and scientific achievements in cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery. Over the years this hospital has ranked among the top of all Polish hospitals. The Center offers the broadest possible spectrum of diagnostics, therapeutic and surgical treatment options for both congenital and acquired heart diseases. We strive to deliver the best care for our patients by contantly improving quality of our medical services  - our efforts are noticed and valued - evidence of which is the fact that every year more then 15.000 patients are admitted to our hospital. More then 12.000 invasive cardiology procedures and more then 2.400 heart surgery procedures in children and adults are performed annually. The youngest patient operated in Silesian Center was a 1-day-old neonate, the oldest – 103-year-old woman. 

Our two Departments of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Disease Unit offer care for patients at every level of heart health: from consultive to interventional cardiology. Experienced interventional cardiology group offers a complete array of diagnostic and treatment tools: from cardiac catheterization, to a full range of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) such as angioplasty and intravascular stent implantation. It has been for Zabrze cardiologists, who in 1986 established a new national standard of acute coronary syndromes treatment by performing primary angioplasty. Zabrze model of ACS treatment, introduced by Stanislaw Pasyk and developed by Lech Polonski and Zbigniew Kalarus and their students,  is considered today as an exemplary in this part of Europe.
