Medical Specialist in Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery

“90% of all complaints in the shoulder and knee joint area can be treated conservatively, the operation is always the last resort.”

The shoulder joint and the knee joint are part of every movement sequences in our lives. The shoulder joint has a unique construction and is the most flexible joint in the human body. We need our knee joint for our daily movement. Even minor structural or functional problems of these two joints can severely impair the activities of daily life and sports activities.

For over 25 years I have been working intensively not only scientifically, but also clinically, mainly with the shoulder and knee joint. Especially minimally invasive surgical techniques for the treatment of structural damages of these 2 joints have fascinated me for years. It is precisely through this minimally invasive insight into the joints that one learns over the years that almost 90% of the complaints in the knee and shoulder joint area can be treated conservatively and successfully.

To give people back their mobility and joy in life is a great gift for me. For this reason, the treatment of shoulder and knee joint diseases has been my profession, my calling and my passion for years.
