Spitzenmedizin trifft auf Empathie
As a surgeon specializing in sports medicine and knee and shoulder injuries, I have over 28 years of professional experience at the University of Vienna Medical School, Department of Traumatology, 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. Most difficult cases from all over Europe are referred to me and to my highly specialized team at the Sportambulatorium Vienna – Center for Orthopedics and Sports Traumatology. Complementing my years of experience and the expertise I gained due to more than 20,000 successful surgeries, I implement state-of-the-art research and innovative therapeutic methods to achieve successful outcomes for each individual patient. Our team of experts treats all types of joint problems and sports injures, ranging from ligament ruptures to fractures to various stress-related and degenerative joint complaints – with an experienced specialist available for each region of the body. Most advanced minimally invasive treatment methods (particularly in the field of arthroscopy) and innovative surgical procedures (such as the keyhole technique) make it possible to treat even long-standing medical conditions. In many cases, modern treatment methods make this possible without surgery.
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.
Langjährige Erfahrung, in Kombination mit der Einbeziehung modernster Forschungsergebnisse und Therapiemethoden, ist der Grundstein der erfolgreichen Behandlung aller PatientInnen des Sportambulatorium Wien.
