At the Heart Center, a team of innovative cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, cardiac radiologists, and nurses works closely together to provide leading cardiac care to patients. Each year, approximately 9000 diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are performed in the catheter lab, pioneering the clinical use of cutting-edge interventional cardiac procedures, such as TAVI, mitralclip, magnet guided radiofrequency ablation, etc. in China. The Center is in the leading position in the treatment of complex lesions of coronary heart disease through rotational atherectomy and hybrid procedures.
As the major cardiovascular research center in Zhejiang Province, the physicians are devoted to conducting rigorous research and various clinical trials, exploring new medications and technologies. Professor Wang Jian An is the first physician-scientist to do the clinical trial using stem cell therapy to treat acute myocardial infarction patients in China and the first to treat congestive heart failure patients with hydrogel implant Algisyl-LVR in Asia Pacific region. In veiw of his outstanding performance in Cardiology, Professor Wang has won a number of awards including the National Science and Technology Progress Award, which is the highest honor for scientists in China.
Furthermore, the Center hosts a variety of medical education courses and conferences for practicing physicians, including an annual conference on cutting-edge topics in cardiac care which attract over 3000 attendees from home and abroad. The Center also offers training opportunities for overseas fellows and residents.
