For me, professional ethics means always giving of one's best. This in turn requires regular further training. Furthermore, I participate in publications and am scientifically active.



Degree at the Faculty of Medicine University of Lausanne


State Examination at the University of Lausanne


After my state examination at the University of Lausanne, I trained inter alia at Balgrist University Hospitalin Zurich under Prof. Adam Schreiber. After gaining the title of Specialist in Orthopaedic Surgery (FMH), I was able to further deepen my knowledge thanks to numerous periods spent abroad. I remained at Balgrist and over several years was a consultant in orthopaedics and paraplegiology, Head of the Department of Spine Surgery and lecturer at the physiotherapy school at University Hospital Zurich.

I have had my own practice since 1994 and frequently attend and organise national and international congresses as well.
