As a specialist surgeon with sound expertise in general visceral surgery, especially hernias, and traumatology (accident surgery + sports injuries), I offer my services at the Lindberg Private Clinic. As a specialised attending physician, I can combine high standards, oriented towards the current state of knowledge, with personal care. With my practice location directly in the Lindberg Private Clinic, distances can also be kept short and uncomplicated.

My spectrum includes minimally invasive surgery (e.g. for hernias or the gall bladder) as well as trauma surgery.

Committed and competent. Consultation hours open to all insurance classes.
