About me

My in-depth training and 25 years of professional experience in Austria’s largest accident hospital allow me to explain complex medical issues in a clear and understandable way. At UKH Meidling I work as a “Senior Consultant Surgeon” in the shoulder clinic. As a former competitive athlete, I have a particularly strong understanding of the special needs of active athletes. Patients appreciate that I take my time and also point out alternative treatment options such as shock wave therapy.
