My publications

About me

After doing research at the Institute of Pharmacology, I switched to Univ. Surgery Clinic. In 2008 I completed my training as a general surgeon and then completed the additional subject vascular surgery.

In 2011 I completed my habilitation in surgery and was appointed senior physician.
Since 2008 I have performed over 3,600 operations, including 3,000 vascular operations as a surgeon or as a trainer for younger colleagues.

My patients value my competence, thoroughness, reliability and surgical expertise. I offer diagnosis, therapy and follow-up care for your vascular medical problem. Should an internal / cardiological clarification or treatment be necessary, this can be carried out promptly in Imed19 at your request.

If examinations such as CT or MRI are required to establish a diagnosis, I will help organize these examinations in a timely manner.

Of course, I am always available for a second opinion on a diagnosis.
