I am board-certified in orthopaedic 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 15 years my main interest has been in endoscopic procedures, where I have broad experience in several techniques and approaches. I have been a lecturer of more than 200 scientific presentations and performed surgeries worldwide as a guest surgeon.
From 2003 to 2021 I served as Master Instructor for the Spine Intervention Society (SIS, formerly ISIS) in the US and Europe and was co-organiser of the European SIS workshops in Amsterdam, Netherlands. From 2006 to 2015, I served as President of the German Interventional Spine Society (GIW e.V.).'.
The doctor explained my health condition in detail, for which I am very grateful.
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.
Real assessment of my case, comprehensive answers.
