Surgical qualifications
I was trained in vitreoretinal surgery by Erik Scherfig 1996 -1997 and 1998 - 2000, and received further training as a vitreoretinal fellow by Bernd Kirchhof in Aachen and by Mathew Thomas in St. Louis, as described below. I am confident with the diagnosis and treatment of all types of vitreoretinal diseases at a highly specialized level. I have performed more than 4000 vitreoretinal invasive procedures, including more than 3000 vitrectomies. In addition, I have performed more than 1600 retinal laser treatments. I have particular experience in the management of all types of retinal detachment, ROP, diabetic retinopathy, complicated forms of Coat’s disease, posterior segment trauma, macular hole, epiretinal membranes, vitreomacular traction, ocular trauma, and complications to anterior segment surgery.
