About us

After many years of training and work in German and Dutch hospitals, I decided to open my own practice in Switzerland in 2011. The main reason to leave the relatively secure environment of a large hospital was the lack of time for each individual patient. Away from continuous work without personal time and on to treatment and care characterized by individual attention and trust.

I can ensure you individual and personal care, from the first consultation to physical examination, treatment and surgery to after-care.

Phlebology as a specialty concerns itself with venous disorders. Often, symptoms of venous disorders are not taken very seriously and are simply considered an aesthetic problem. Tired, heavy feet, swollen ankles, itching and even cramps in the calf are often just accepted, even if our daily life is negatively impacted. Only a few actually know that venous disorders can lead to major complications and serious health problems.

Luckily, several different therapy methods for the treatment of venous disorders have become available over the years, making it possible for us to choose the best treatment possible for each patient on an individual basis.

Both in diagnostics as well as in treatment and surgery, I can look back on decades of experience.

In the years before opening my own practice in Switzerland, aside of my work as a general surgeon, I was a senior consultant at a hospital for phlebology in the Netherlands where I have conducted more than 1,000 catheter interventions for endovenous treatment of varicose veins as well as laser and radiofrequency catheter treatment VNUS closure.
