About me

Through many years of clinical and interventional work at the Vienna General Hospital (AKH) and as a senior physician at the cardiology department in the KH-Nord, I am particularly experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Due to my position as head of clinical studies, I am also always informed about new, efficient therapy options. Patients come to me in order to carry out early treatment of risk factors in terms of prevention, if they suspect or have already diagnosed a heart disease, with complaints such as increased blood pressure, exercise-dependent chest pain, shortness of breath, poor performance or swollen legs.
