My professional career has taken me from
New York City in the United States here to Zurich.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Science and Physical Therapy in 1978.
I spent the beginning of my career at the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine and Goldwater Memorial Hospital, where I focused on rehabilitation and recovery from serious injuries. Progress was not measured in days and weeks, but rather in months and years. Patience and a good eye for the recovery process remain an essential part of my treatment philosophy today.
My longest place of employment was the Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center (now Columbia Medical Center, New York Orthopedic Hospital) in New York. There I had the privilege of working with internationally recognized and truly excellent physicians such as Dr. Charles Neer II, Dr. Louis Bigliani, Dr. Christopher B. Michelsen, and Dr. Melvin P. Rosenwasser.
Training, patient care and research were all part of a normal working day. More than 40 years later, my dedication to patient care and training remains strong.
In Switzerland, I had the opportunity to work at the Schulthess Klinik in Zurich and in the Zurich Oberland, in Grüningen and Rüti.
