Let me first heartily welcome you to my website! This is to point out some of my contributions to the medical profession and science.
It was in 1976 that I launched the Frankfurter Spezialklinik für Beinleiden / Vein Clinic Frankfurt. In its early days the clinic existed as a small hospital for inpatients, at Zeil 123, Frankfurt. In March 2004 we acquired the phlebology-surgery practice of Dr. Zoltán Böhm, still continuing cooperation between him and myself, my work and my expertise since.
Since 01 October, 2011 we have been pleased to welcome you at our new premises, located Rossmarkt 23, Frankfurt.
Today’s Vein Clinic is a practice clinic concerned with phlebology, lymphology and angiology. In this connection, let me particularly point out that the concept of atraumatic, minimally invasive surgical treatment was developed more than 35 years ago, including all the appurtenant instruments produced by the Aesculap and Medicor companies. (See details in “Methods and Instruments”.) My method, together with its appurtenant instruments, is worldwide well known, and the instruments devised by me are in use almost in all clinics/surgeries practicing phlebology.
This treatment concept, including the appurtenant instrumentarium, has been worldwide suggested and in practice demonstrated by me in more than 20 countries. My academic achievements comprise more than 400 lectures held at congresses worldwide in several languages, more than 100 publications and co-authorship of about 40 books.
In 1986 I was named Professor by the University Zacatecas, Mexico, where I had regularly been lecturing, operating and treating patients, as I had done with other universities as well. That connection and cooperation is still in existence.
As from 1987, each year in March, I have been organizing the Frankfurt Workshop for Phlebology, in cooperation with numerous foreign phlebology societies and with the professional institution of lymphologists. This great international symposium is attended by colleagues from Germany and renown experts from all over the world, to participate in presentations and to exchange ideas.
In 1993 I became founder of a scientific association, the International Forum for Minisurgery and Phlebectomy of Varicose Veins. Meanwhile it comprises more than 1,500 members, being one of the largest associations in this field in Europe.
