As a surgeon specializing in sports medicine and knee and shoulder injuries, I have over 28 years of professional experience at the Vienna University Trauma Surgery Clinic, as Head Physician of the EURO 2008 and American Football World Cup 2014, Medical Director of the Vienna City Marathon and Team Doctor for the Austrian national American football team. Each year, I personally treat around 4,000 patients with knee issues, shoulder problems and sports injuries. The most difficult cases throughout Europe are transferred into my own personal care and that of my highly specialized team at the Sportambulatorium Wien – Center for Orthopedics and Sports Traumatology as well as the Sports and Joint Surgery Center Complementing my years of experience and the expertise I developed during more than 20,000 successful surgeries, I incorporate state-of-the-art research and therapeutic methods to achieve successful outcomes for each individual patient. Our team of experts treats all types of athletic injuries and joint problems, ranging from fractures to various stress-related and degenerative joint complaints – with an experienced specialist available for each region of the body. Whether the issue is with your knee, shoulder, hip, foot, or wrist, the latest minimally invasive treatment methods (particularly in the field of arthroscopy) and innovative surgical procedures (such as the keyhole technique) can often completely eliminate even long-standing medical conditions. In many cases, modern treatment methods make this possible without surgery. Our cohesive team at the Sportambulatorium Wien – Center for Orthopedics and Sports Traumatology works together seamlessly, offering a comprehensive range of fields and specializations to ensure you receive the best possible care.
At the SPORTambulatorium Wien, you will receive care from excellent and experienced medical specialists. Our specialized aptitude in a wide range of fields benefits everyone from professional and recreational athletes to those who refrain from sports altogether, with a single goal: to enable each and every patient to live a pain-free and active life.
Years of experience and the application of state-of-the-art research and therapeutic methods create a solid foundation for the successful treatment of each individual patient.
