Professional career

Born in beautiful Hamburg, I began my medical studies in 2005 at the renowned University Medical Centre Hamburg Eppendorf and completed them in 2013 at Justus Liebig University Giessen, where I also gained my doctorate in 2016. My further training as a specialist in general and visceral surgery took me to the academic teaching hospital of the University of Giessen, the Asklepios Klinik Lich with PD Dr T. Schwandner and Dr J. Schabram, where I was recognised as a specialist in visceral surgery in May 2020 and have also worked as an emergency physician since 2017.

After returning to Hamburg at the end of 2020, I worked in various management positions at the Hamburg Vaccination Centre until March 2022, including as Medical Director of the laboratory and vaccine production. After my postgraduate training at the Clinic for Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery at the Ameos Klinikum St. Clemens Oberhausen, NRW under Chief Physician Dr Michael Strelow, I worked in my own private practice in the field of aesthetic botulinum and filler therapy from April 2023 until I joined LIPOCURA®.

I am a member of the Professional Association of German Surgeons e.V.
German Society for General and Visceral Surgery e.V.
German Society for Aesthetic Botulinum Therapy e.V.

Experience and work in the field of lipedema

Back in June 2018, as part of my specialist training, I completed an internship with my current colleague Dr Hartmut Meyer at his former Brahmsallee clinic in Hamburg. Even back then, I was very touched by the high level of suffering of those affected and the sometimes very frustrating reports from patients, e.g. about their odyssey to a lipedema diagnosis. Helping patients to alleviate their symptoms and improve their body image and my great interest in modern lipoedema treatment prompted me to join the LIPOCURA® team in Hamburg.
