As a JCI-accredited hospital, all medical departments of the OLV Hospital provide top quality care to its patients.
While the OLV Hospital covers a wide array of medical disciplines, it has gained a sound international reputation as center of excellence in specific areas including:
Urology. The OLV Hospital's urology department is at the forefront of medical innovation in its area. The urology surgeons are experts in laser techniques and robotic-assisted surgery. The departmental head is the co-founder and inspirer of ORSI, an OLV-related organisation that trains international physicians in robotic surgery. The OLV Hospital is certified as ERUS Robotic Training Center.
Cardiology and Cardiovascular & thoracic surgery. Both departments jointly form the OLV Cardiac Center which has built a strong international reputation as medical innovator.
The OLV Cardiac Center has developed or pioneered several break-through innovations, including: Fractional Flow Reserve measuring (FFR) for Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCI), robot-assisted Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG), Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantations (TAVI) and MitraClip procedures.
Neurosurgery. OLV's neurosurgery department is world-wide recognised as center of excellence in its discipline with a wide expertise in procedures regarding the spine and the central nervous system (brains, nerves, spinal cord).
Brain surgery is an important area of expertise which is here often supported by neuronavigation, enabling an even higher degree of surgical precision combined with a further reduction of surgery-related risks. Traditionally, the treatment of deviations of the spinal column (lumbal discus hernia, et cetera), is another focus point of our neurosurgeons
