About us

Our mission

Our motivation is to develop simple ‘best in class’ heart bypass technology through ‘key holes’. The new standard, with lower costs for society, less complications and a faster recovery for the patient.


Our vision

Our dream is to banish open heart bypass surgery from the world by a minimal invasive heart bypass procedure, so the patient is back home after only a few days, without pain, to do the things that make him/her happy again.


AMT Medical

Together with the UMC Utrecht, the Netherlands we developed a new and better way to perform heart bypasses. The Antonius hospital Nieuwegein, the Netherlands and The German Heart Center in Berlin, Germany are the expert centers to use the procedure into clinical practice. Partnership is important for us so we work on a daily basis with clinical specialists and advisors and our investors.
We firmly believe “Together we are better”.
Our AMT team is key to reach our goals. A diverse team of junior and senior members, with an extensive track record in R&D innovations, quality, regulatory and bringing clinical solutions to patients. 


Our values

We value people orientation with a passion about innovation and quality. We trust each other and communicate in an open and transparent way. We are ambitious and driven to reach our common mission and vision.
