Surgical CompetenciesExtensive experience in extremity trauma surgery, endoscopic joint operations, fracture and soft tissue management. My 20+ years of clinical practice have been marked by a specialization in endoscopic joint surgeries, with a deep understanding of arthroscopic procedures and minimally invasive techniques.
Comprehensive expertise in fracture and soft tissue care has allowed me to continually enhance my knowledge and skills in managing complex injury patterns. This includes the treatment of sports injuries, work accidents, and general trauma-related damage.
In my surgical career, I have also gained considerable expertise in joint arthroplasty. Prosthetic care of the hip, knee, and shoulder, tailored to the individual needs of patients, is a regular part of my responsibilities, as is sophisticated spinal surgery. The latter encompasses both degenerative and traumatic indications and incorporates the most advanced techniques and technologies.
