Welcome to my homepage.

I have been concentrating on spinal surgery and conservative treatment of spinal disorders
for over 20 years.


Precise investigation and evaluation of the radiological images are always vital to the successful treatment in order to launch a personalized treatment plan.


Its goal is a significant improvement in pain situations as well as regaining health-related quality of life.


By cooperating with the back pain center, I can manage to offer short-dated appointments for initial examination and subsequently perform radiological investigation and the initiation of targeted therapy at very short notice. The follow-up physical therapy can also be induced rapidly through the cooperation with the Physikarium Bad Schallerbach.


Surgical treatment is carried out individually – from minimally invasive to the deformity correction by osteotomy – in the Medical Center Bad Vigaun.


The in-patient conservative treatment consisting of pain management, infiltration and punctures as well as physical therapy are accomplished in Bad Vigaun, too. (www.badvigaun.com)
