Tailored Approach

Patients are cared for individually and we put together an optimal, tailored therapy (so-called tailored approach). Open and minimally invasive operations are used.


One contact person

It is particularly important to us that the entire treatment is in one hand and that you are cared for throughout by experienced specialists. Before, during and after the operation.

Outpatient surgery preferred

Hernia surgery is a matter of trust. At our clinic, all patients are treated only by specialists in the treatment of abdominal wall and inguinal hernias. You know your surgeon and can turn to him or her with confidence even after the operation. No anonymity or long waiting times in emergency rooms.


In hernia surgery, minor procedures such as umbilical or upper abdominal hernias can be performed very well on an outpatient basis. As a patient, this gives you the following advantages:

  • You know your surgeons and the anesthesia is performed by a very experienced anesthesiologist.
  • You do not have to be afraid of the anesthesia and you are guaranteed to wake up every time.
  • No waiting time before surgery and no appointment cancellations or postponements due to emergencies.
  • Friendly and individual care during the operation. We are always available for you.
  • No risk of infection with multi-resistant germs.
  • Better recovery in familiar surroundings, at your home. 

Outpatient operations are performed in our practice in Berlin-Lankwitz, Kaiser-Wilhelm-Straße 24-26.


Nevertheless, there are also cases that have to be performed as in-patient operations with overnight stays. Here we operate in the Schöneberg Clinic and in the Havel Clinic in Berlin.

Quality is important to us

Since 2014, we have voluntarily participated in the HERNIAMED quality assurance study with our patients who agree to this.


All patients who have undergone surgery with us are briefly interviewed after 1, 5 and 10 years and the results are documented. On the basis of this data, we have been able to gain many new insights that have been directly incorporated into patient care.


As a distinction for this quality service, we were awarded the seal of the German Hernia Society (DHG).

Spezielle Sprechstunde: Hernien in der Schwangerschaft

Hernias in pregnancy

The formation of abdominal wall hernias during pregnancy is a common phenomenon and mostly harmless. Nevertheless, patients are often confused and there are also differential diagnoses that are not so well known.


Based on our expertise, we can answer all your questions, allay your fears and give you honest advice on whether and when surgery is advisable. Trust the experts.



Spezielle Sprechstunde: Rektusdiastase nach Schwangerschaft

Rectus diastasis after pregnancy

A pathological widening of the straight abdominal muscles (rectus muscle) is called rectus diastasis, whereby a gap of more than 2 cm is already considered pathological widening in Germany. This is often associated with a very thin abdominal wall, in which the formation of upper abdominal and umbilical hernias is favored.


The therapy of this abdominal wall slackening is problematic, since existing abdominal wall hernias in particular must be treated professionally. Special expertise is important here, which requires interdisciplinary therapy.


We offer you a detailed consultation and whether an operation is necessary.


In a large practice with many patients, not everything always goes smoothly. We are working on ourselves and you are welcome to send your criticism directly to me at so that we can also improve. 


Of course, we are also happy to receive positive feedback and/or a rating on GOOGLE.
