Professional profile

I have been a Neurological Consultant at Hope Hospital, Salford and the Royal Bolton Hospital since May 2007. I was born and educated in Germany where I was brought up bilingual by my German father and English mother, who is from Berkshire. I studied medicine in Florence, Italy and Saarbruecken and Freiburg, Germany. After graduation I worked in different medical centres in Germany including the Neurosurgery University Hospital in Giessen and a specialised centre for Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's disease in Bad Laasphe.

For nine years I was the Medical Director of the Wicker Clinic Bad Wildungen. I was also the German deputee for medical exchange with several Arab countries such as Emirates, Qatar, Oman and Egypt. I have previously been a lecturer at the University Hospital, Marburg (Prof. Oertel, Neurolology).

My special interests are Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and Pain Management. I also have a particular interest in sport injuries with neurological involvement as I have been a keen marathon runner for many years.
