With 30 years of experience in all types of anaesthetics and Intensive Care Medicine, I am still enthusiastic and enjoy every part of my clinical work.
My main interest is anaesthesia for major abdominal surgery, although I have experience in cardiac, urology, kidney transplant and all other types of surgery. I am especially adept at anaesthetising very ill and challenging patients.
I have witnessed and taken an active part in anaesthesia improvement, increased safety of anaesthesia delivery, the improvement of postoperative pain management and an enhanced recovery programme.
My other endeavours include teaching on the national and international level, research, publishing, improving communication between anaesthetists worldwide, editing an anaesthetic journal and several books as well as charity work.
