General Info

About me

I especially like to offer the patient the possibility of treating most skin tumors with local anesthesia, since most of these can be solved in this way and offer both health and economic advantages, comfortable and painless. When this is not possible or the patient does not want it, we can also always resort to general anesthesia. I always want patients to know that I speak to them in a transparent but compassionate way, that I study and constantly update myself to have scientific support and work with the intention of treating them impeccably. I want you to feel calm and confident in my work. This is also part of a comprehensive oncological treatment.
