Specialist for General and Visceral Surgery
As a scholarship holder of the Cusansuswerk, I completed medical school at the University of Ulm and the Technical University of Munich, as well as at Cornell University in New York / USA, where I worked at the renowned Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
At the beginning of my careere I worked for almost one year at the Surgical Clinic München-Bogenhausen, where the main focus was on minimally invasive visceral surgery, as well as on hernia surgery (e.g. inguinal-, umbilical- and incision hernias).
I preceeded to work at the Städtischen Klinikum München-Bogenhausen in the Department for General-, Visceral- and Thoracic Surgery under the medical director Professor Heitland and then in the Department of General-, Visceral- and Endocrine Surgery – Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery headed by Professor Agha.
During this period, I expanded and honed my surgical skills, especially in the field of minimally invasive colorectal surgery for the treatment of colorectal cancer, diverticular disease and chronic inflammatory bowel disease.
Leading the coloproctological clinic together with Professor Iesalnieks at the Städtischen Klinikum München-Bogenhausen enabled me to expand my knowledge.
In addition, I helped shape and execute masterclasses in Munich, which aim to introduce colleagues from all over the world to minimally invasive colorectal surgery.
My scientific focus has also been on coloproctologic surgery. I associated as a member of the international study project European Society of Coloproctology Collaborating Group (links to publications).
My work was rounded off with lectures and presentations at national and international conferences, such as, e.g. the Chirurgenkongress 2016 in Munich or the International Coloproctologists Congress in Berlin 2017.
In addition to my clinical work, I was responsible for medical students completing their surgical rotation in their final year, thereby promoting the next generation of surgeons.
On 01.07.2018, I succeeded Dr. Bittmann and now head the Department of Visceral Surgery in the Clinic Josephinum together with Professor Kasparek. In close cooperation with our colleagues in Gastroenterology and Oncology, we are entrusted with the surgical treatment of patients in the Clinic Josephinum.
