In the 25 years of my clinical work in neurosurgery I have focused early on minimal invasive techniques in the treatment of brain tumours. Stereotactic and microsurgical training in Homburg and Aachen, Germany, Assistant Professor at the Duke University, Durham, USA . Further specialisation at the Department of Neurosurgery of the Karolinska University, Stockholm, where the concept of radiosurgery and the Gamma Knife technology had been developed. Between 2000 and 2001 and 2006-2008 Director of the Karolinska Gamma Knife Center. Between 1999 and 2005 Director of the International Gamma Knife Training Courses at the Karolinska University Stockholm, which were mandatory for all new Gamma Knife Centers worldwide. Since 10/2006 Professor of Neurosurgery (University Aachen, Germany). Since 11/07 President of the European Gamma Knife Society (EGKS). Since 9/2008 Co-Director of the Bupa Cromwell Hospital Gamma Knife Centre. My clinical priority is the Gamma Knife treatment of benign and malignant brain tumours.
