PD Dr. David-Christopher Kubosch, Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery, Spine Surgery"Due to the vast differences between patients, treating the spine requires a great deal of treatment experience. The specific factors and the wishes of patients often determine the course of treatment, not the x-rays or MRI images"

My interest in medicine goes all the way back to my early childhood and comes from my father, who was an internist. I frequently visited my father in his office, where I learned both the technical and the human aspect of being a physician. I was particularly fascinated by the skilled way in which people in need were treated and by the ways they were shown compassion and given constructive support. In my opinion there is no other job which combines the technical and human aspects this well.

My enthusiasm for surgery emerged whilst working as a stand-in surgeon during my alternative civilian service days. This time ultimately solidified my desire to become a surgeon. The interest for spine disorders and treating them came quickly after entering the profession, allowing me to focus on a field early on. My goal was to gain the most experience possible in treating the spine in these early years.

Due to the vast differences in patients, treating the spine in particular requires extensive treatment experience. The specific factors and wishes of patients often determine the course of treatment, not x-rays or MRI images. I therefore consider my role to be an equal discussion partner who offers suggestions to then decide the treatment together.

To further my experience and advance the field of spine surgery, I am leading several research projects at the University Medical Center Freiburg (Uniklinik Freiburg). I further use my work as a lecturer at the University Medical Center Freiburg to pass my experience and knowledge on to the next generation physicians.

Since 2020 I have been a DWG (Deutsche Wirbelsäulen Gesellschaft - German Society for Spine Surgery) certified spine specialist at Gelenk-Klinik. Focusing medical experience and skills in a relatively small team of highly experienced specialist at Gelenk-Klinik to ensure holistic care was particularly appealing to me.
