The Department of Urology at the Salzburg Privatklinik Ritzensee specialises in the investigation and treatment of diseases of the urinary organs as well as the male genital organs. The urologists at Privatklinik Ritzensee specialise in conservative and surgical treatments.
For me as a specialist in urology and andrology, it is natural not only to respond to the needs of each patient individually, but also to keep myself informed about the latest research findings. The focus of my work is on personalised diagnostics and the treatment of prostate cancer, kidney tumours and bladder tumours, as well as robot-assisted surgery (intuitive surgical Da Vinci System), laparoscopy (keyhole surgery) and endo-urology.
Kidney tumours & kidney cysts
Urothelial tumours (bladder)
Curvature of the penis
I enjoyed my training in open and minimally invasive surgery with the most renowned urologists in Austria and today offer my patients many years of experience and a broad surgical spectrum. I also have extensive expertise in the treatment of advanced prostate cancer – from classic hormone therapy to chemotherapy and modern treatment options.
In addition to my practical activities, numerous study visits and work shadowing, I have been active in the national and European professional society for urology since the beginning of my training. In this context, I was involved, among other things, in the co-founding and organisation of the Austrian School of Urology and the Austrian Society of Urology. I follow medical studies nationally and internationally, am a lecturer myself and author of numerous professional articles.
In my private life, I am happily married and the proud father of a daughter. When I’m not looking after the well-being and recovery of my patients, I enjoy time on my racing bike or on skis and turn to my guitar in bad weather.
