Language Spoken: German, English


Complaints in the area of the spine can be based on a wide variety of clinical pictures. The symptoms vary from person to person and the treatment is also very individual. From the anamnesis to the diagnosis to the treatment concept, I will be happy to assist you with my many years of experience in spinal medicine. Together with you, I will develop a treatment plan after a detailed evaluation of all available anamnestic, clinical and imaging findings. This can be based on conservative measures on the one hand, but also on surgical measures in certain cases.
