Dear patients and referring physicians!


Surgery means taking responsibility for a person and is therefore a matter of special trust and experience.

Through my 30 years of work at the University Clinic of Heidelberg, one of the largest and most renowned medical centers in Germany, I have been able to gain a wide experience with more than 14,000 surgical procedures.

The special focus of my medical work has been on complex operations in the area of the pancreas (European Pancreas Center, Heidelberg), the liver and the entire digestive tract.

As head of transplantation surgery, I was able to perform liver, kidney and pancreas transplants including live liver donations in children and adults for more than 10 years.

It is my personal concern to put this experience at the service of the health of my patients.

We cordially welcome patients of all insurance classes!

I am at your disposal for further questions.
