The patient was treated of aortic valve insufficiency

I'll tell you how it all happened, maybe it will help someone make their choice. I'll start with the fact that I was looking for a clinic for a long time to treat my son both in Europe and in Russia. The son is 5 years old, it was necessary to carry out a radical operation on the aortic valve, plastic or Rosa operation. The second is very difficult to perform, so it was important to find a surgeon with extensive experience. Alessandro Frigiola has a lot of experience. In Moscow, there are generally few reviews about Italian medicine, but after visiting here I can safely recommend this doctor, operations are performed here every day, everything is thought out to the smallest detail and you do not care, as in Moscow, for example, what equipment or conditions for treatment are lacking. I liked the San Donato clinic itself, despite the fact that almost no one speaks Russian, language barriers almost did not interfere, the staff are caring, they treat children with love. The atmosphere is pleasant here. Special thanks to the staff of international treatment organizations, the department may not write correctly, but I think it's clear. For all questions 24/7, you can contact them, Olga Gribova helped organize everything for a whole year. An excellent translator, Mariana, who also helps to communicate with doctors in the clinic and is constantly in touch if any problems arise. For all questions, even those that did not concern treatment, the girls always responded very responsively and helped. Thanks to them, the trip turned out to be much easier morally and with less worries. I was allowed to visit my son in intensive care. He stayed there for 2 days, and could have stayed less, but there were delays due to a smear on the covid, so they decided to keep him there, because the operation was difficult. Accommodation here is separate from the hospital, but Olga also helped with this issue. Everything was organized very quickly, there is no red tape with documents, as, for example, in Germany. As for the ward itself, in principle, everything is like everywhere else, I have no particular complaints. Расскажу как все было,может кому-то это поможет сделать свой выбор.Начну с того,что я долго искала клинику, для лечения сына и в Европе и в России. Сыну 5 лет, необходимо было провести операцию радикальную на клапане аорты, пластика или операция Роса. Вторая очень сложная по выполнению, поэтому важно было найти хирурга с большим опытом. Алессандро Фриджиола имеет очень большой опыт. В Москве вообще мало отзывов про итальянскую медицину, но побывав здесь могу смело рекомендовать этого врача, операции тут делают каждый день, все продумано до мелочей и тебя не заботит,как в Москве, например, какого не хватает оборудование или условия для лечения. Сама клиника Сан Донато тоже понравилась, несмотря на то,что по русски почти никто не говорит языковые преграды почти не мешали, персонал заботливый,к детям относятся с любовью. Атмосфера тут приятная. Отдельное спасибо персоналу по международным организациям лечения,может не правильно написала отдел,но думаю понятно. По всем вопросам 24/7 ты можешь связаться с ними, Ольга Грибова помогала целый год все организовать. Прекрасный переводчик Мариана,которая тоже и в клинике с врачами помогает общаться и постоянно на связи,если возникают какие-то проблемы. По всем вопросам, даже которые не касались лечения, девушки очень отзивчиво всегда реагировали и помогали. Благодаря им поездка получилось намного легче морально и с меньшими заботами. Мне разрешали навещать сына в реанимации. Там он пробыл 2 дня, и мог бы пробыть меньше,но возникли задержки из-за мазка на ковид, поэтому решили и его придержать там, потому что операция сложная была. С жильём тут отдельно от госпиталя,но Ольга тоже помогала с этим вопросом. Все очень быстро организовали, нету волокиты с документами,как например в Германии.
По самой палате в принципе все как и везде, особых нареканий у меня нет.

The patient was treated in this clinic

The general impression of the clinic is pleasantly surprising. I personally visited an endocrinologist and helped me solve my problem, I also turned to a pediatric therapist and vaccinated my child, the translator helped me a lot while I was in the clinic, and I communicated with the doctor very well thanks to her. Общее впечатление о клинике приятно удивляет.
Я лично была у эндокринолога и мне помогли решить мою проблему, так же я обращалась к детскому терапевту и делала ребенку прививки, переводчик мне очень помогла во время нахождения в клинике, с доктором отлично общались благодаря ей.

Interventional Cardiology Department

San Donato cardiologists specialize in endovascular operations for the treatment of heart and vessel diseases. Surgeons perform them using a thin and long catheter without skin incisions. The recovery period after such a procedure is much easier compared with open surgeries and lasts only 1-2 days.

Coronary angioplasty


Angioplasty is a procedure to treat narrowed or obstructed arteries of the heart. There are 2 types of angioplasty — balloon surgery and stenting.

Cardiologists perform balloon operation with a small balloon placed in the vessel to increase the amount of blood flowing through the artery. After the procedure doctors put out the balloon.

Stenting is performed with a metal or plastic tube called a stent to increase artery permeability. A stent stays in the vessels for at least 10 years.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)


This is a minimally invasive procedure to replace a heart valve. Usually, doctors carry out a sternotomy (chest opening) to implant a new valve, but TAVI can be done with a small puncture or incision.

Cardiologists insert a catheter with an artificial valve in a vessel. Doctors open the implant like an “umbrella” near the flaps of the old valve and fixate it there. It is an image-guided operation allowing doctors precisely to control the valve movement through the vessels.

Arrhythmology Department

According to the San Donato data, the Arrhythmology Department is the best in Europe to treat cardiac arrhythmia.

There are 45 hospital beds and 12 twenty-four-hour ECG monitoring devices with telemedicine in the department. ECG allows to connect patients with their physicians at any time.

3 operating rooms are equipped with modern devices including the latest X-ray systems. They produce less X-ray emission than previous models and are safer for patients.

Doctors specialize in the following procedures:

  • radiofrequency catheter ablation
  • pacemaker insertion
  • defibrillator implantation
  • cardiac resynchronization therapy to manage heart failure.
