About me

I am board certified for orthopedic surgery and pain therapy. My medical education includes the University of Dusseldorf, St. Moritz, Switzerland, the Spine Center at the Orthopädische Klinik München-Harlaching, and the University Hospital in Quebec City, Canada.
I am experienced with performing a variety of injection procedures in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. For more than 10 years my main interest are endoscopic procedures, where I have broad experience in several techniques and approaches. I have been a lecturer of more than 100 scientific presentations and performed surgeries worldwide as a guest surgeon.
I am also the Master Instructor for the Spine Intervention Society (SIS, formerly ISIS) in the US and Europe since 2003. I was the co-organizer of the European SIS workshops in Amsterdam, Netherlands. From 2006 to 2015, I served as the president of the German Interventional Spine Society (GIW e.V.) and am a member of the German Spine Society (DWG e.V.). Furthermore, I am a member of the British Pain Society’s (BPS) Interventional Pain Medicine Research Group and serve as a reviewer for the spine section of “Pain Medicine”.

    Thank you very much for the second opinion explained in great detail and in my understanding. Now I understand how to proceed in case of inflammation and what to do to protect my spine.

    Thank you very much for your opinion. Your opinion agrees with the doctor I visited, but he did not say anything about inflammation. Thank you very much.
