Research interests:

My scientific interest comprise colorectal cancer, especially hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC; Lynch syndrome). The efficiency of information and screening in families with Lynch syndrome is one of his main interests. A second scientific focus is endocrine surgery and especially secondary hyperparathyroidism including the analysis of surgical procedures and outcome of patients undergoing parathyroidectomy.
