I am a specialist in surgery, visceral surgery and proctology and a Fellow of the European Board of Surgery. I completed my medical studies in Antwerp and Bochum. I then completed my practical training in the largest and oldest specialist clinic for coloproctology and intestinal surgery in Germany at the time.

Over the past 15 years, I have held management positions at various clinics, including seven years as head physician, most recently at the Helios Clinic in Munich-Perlach.

I am the father of two grown-up daughters, enjoy golfing, sailing and hunting, and have a fondness for the Bavarian way of life and regional cuisine. I am also a member of the Bavarian Mountain Rifles.
