Consultation at my office


The main activity in my office is consultation. It is most important for me to be able to talk to my patients.


In most cases patients are referred to me by their GP or their internist. Some patients find my office on the internet and others have a recommendation by friends. All patients are very welcome in my practice, no matter what kind of medical insurance they belong to. For organization reasons an appointment with my secretaries is mandatory and even in an emergency you should call before you come in. As a surgeon I am in the operating room a lot and I have reserved certain time slots for my consultation hours. In an emergency I will always be able to come out between two operations and see my patient, but my secretary needs a little warning in advance to be able to arrange that.


My secretary will always try to optimize your appointment and try not to have you wait more than a few minutes. If it is your first visit to my office, she will allow enough time for an extensive examination and discussion about your problem and the possible consequences.


Patients should bring preexisting reports and X-ray along in order to avoid repeated examinations. I usually do a clinical examination and an abdominal ultrasound examination. In most cases the diagnosis is made but sometimes more extensive investigations are necessary like a CT-scan, MRI or an endoscopy. Usually we can arrange for these examinations at the ISAR Klinikum the very same day. The aim is a definite diagnosis on which I can base my treatment options.


I find it very important to discuss the results of our investigations, the diagnosis and the surgical consequences or possible alternatives in detail with my patients. Of course I will also need informed consent for any operation we plan.


Follow up after the operation


All my patients have a follow up date in my office about one week after discharge from the hospital. 


This is for control of wounds, for removing stitches or tacks. In almost all cases I also check the operation site by ultrasound. This enables me to detect any secretions or collections, which can be aspirated by ultrasound guided puncture in order to speed up healing and recovery. 


Usually we will also discuss histology reports (sometimes they come in after the discharge of the patients from the hospital), the operation itself and future consequences, medication, nutritional aspects, control examinations and many more things. 


Ambulant operations


I do not perform ambulant surgical procedures at my office, but I can use the facilities of the “ambulant surgery center” at the ISAR Klinikum. Here small procedures under local anesthesia or a short general can be performed.




Most of the surgery I do requires hospitalization of the patient. I try to keep hospital stay as short as possible and as long as necessary. I do all the necessary work up and preparation before the admission to the hospital and most of my patients come in on the day of surgery. Only for the bigger operations admission one or two days in advance is necessary. With the Isarklinik I have one of the nicest clinics in Munich available for my patients with 13 operating rooms, a huge and fully equipped ICU, 300 beds with a hotel like atmosphere (patients can choose from standard rooms up to a luxury suite), a highly selected and trained nursing staff, all the technical diagnostic infrastructure (state of the art CT scan, MRI and digital angiography) and the interdisciplinary facilities especially for my high risk patients like cardiology, neurology, pulmonology etc. more about the clinic
