My interest and competency in the field of EDS/ Generalized Joint Hypermobility (GJH) is two-fold:

As a physiotherapist I treat regularly patients having various musculoskeletal problem associated with EDS and GJH. The main focus of the therapy is function-centred including pain relief, improvement of muscle function and joint stability, as well as advice for daily life activities or sports.

As a researcher I am interested in the biomechanical background of joint hypermobility and the possibilties to reduce symptoms and to improve joint stability and daily life activity. At Bern University Hospital we yet performed several research projects and are still engaged in the topic.

The Division of Metabolism at the University Children’s Hospital Zurich has a long standing international reputation as one of the leading diagnostic and research centres for CTD world-wide. Furthermore, the Division is dedicated to the management and counselling of patients and their families. In this position, the Division can count on a relevant and over the years increasing number of patients referred from European, Pan-Asian, Australian and Arabian countries. During a one-year period we see approximately 70 new patients with CTD in our outpatient clinic. Single observations have turned out to become seminal models for biologically new and surprising concepts and the same is expected in the future.

We have established a multidisciplinary CTD clinic including clinical, biochemical and molecular diagnosis with a particular focus on long term follow up and natural history of CTD.

I will be joining the faculty of Balgrist University Hospital on August 1st as a spinal neurosurgeon. After my residency training in Switzerland I completed two fellowships in New York (Spine Surgery and Neurosurgical Oncology) as well as one year of research for Rady’s Children Hospital in San Diego. This broad educational background exposed me to the management of EDS patients with typical neurosurgical manifestations (such as craniocervical instability, occult tethered cord syndrome, scoliosis and other spinal deformities as well as Chiari type I malformations). It is my strong desire to serve the local population and particularly patients with EDS, knowing about their needs and particularities when it comes to diagnosing and treating the above mentioned manifestations. Also knowing about the gaps in patient and physician education about that subject I will thrive to improve educating the community in order to increase awareness of EDS associated disorders of the spine and brain. Lastly I have a strong research interest and will utilize the resources of the University Hospital to increase our knowledge about EDS and associated manifestations.
