Area of expertise:
Infiltrations/ Interventional Pain Therapy
We offer you a comprehensive evaluation, clarification and assessment of your spinal complaints. The diagnosis is made through a comprehensive clinical examination and evaluation of various imaging modalities such as X-ray, MRI and CT. Together with you we will develop a therapy plan after a detailed evaluation of all existing medical, clinical and imaging findings. On the one hand, this can be based on conservative measures, but in certain cases also on operative measures. Conservative therapy measures include the medicinal treatment of neck and back pain as well as complaints radiating to the arms and legs. In particular, we offer interventional pain therapy using infiltrations at the cervical spine and lumbar spine directly under C-arm control (fluoroscopy). The operative treatment of degenerative and traumatic spinal diseases is carried out promptly in two renowned private hospitals in Vienna.

Area of Expertise:
Originally from Spittal an der Drau, medical studies in Vienna, graduating in 1980. After training as a general practitioner specialised training in gynaecology at Wilhelminen Hospital in the department of Prof. Baumgarten. Own practice since 1988, since then also attending and consulting physician, mainly at the Rudolfinerhaus, the leading private hospital in Vienna.
Area of Expertise:
Fibroids and heavy periods
Advice on infections
Advice on PMS and menopause
Diseases & vaccination
Pregnancy and childbirth
Desire to have children
As much as necessary, as little as possible: This is especially true for surgery. But sometimes a surgical treatment is necessary. In such a case I will accompany patients to the Rudolfinerhaus and take care of you together with all other necessary specialists as appropriate. There I can perform all gynaecological operations, including laparascopies (buttonhole surgery).
• Diagnostic and therapeutic abdominal laparoscopies
• Hysteroscopic surgery
• Diagnostic and therapeutic hysteroscopy
• Small gynaecological interventions
• Curettage /DNC (scraping the endometrium for tissue analysis or after miscarriages)
• Thermo ablation for the gentle treatment of excessive menstrual bleeding
• Conizations for the treatment and investigation of suspicious cancer smears
• Fibroid removal, embolization or surgery
• Abdominal incision (transverse or longitudinal)
• Vaginal operations (through the vagina)
• Removal of the uterus with and without ovaries
• Operations after a lowered uterus
• Various operations for loss of urine
• All “obstetrical operations”, caesarean section under general anaesthesia or Peridural (local) anaesthesia
As a specialist in surgery with a focus on gastroenterology and minimally invasive surgery, I am well aware of the uncertainty and concerns that patients might have when facing an examination or operation.
Surgical procedures in the abdominal region are a focal point of my specialist work. I use minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgical procedures whenever possible, which involve less recovery time after the procedure and offer cosmetic and aesthetic advantages.
Whether it be for a gallbladder or appendix removal, repair of inguinal hernias and operations on the oesophagus, stomach or intestines, I regularly opt for minimally invasive procedures. Thanks to the exceptionally high image quality of the internal video footage providing a good overview of the procedure from inside the body, operations and preparative procedures are usually much gentler and cause far less bleeding than traditional surgery. The time that it takes for patients to make a full recovery is also generally much shorter.

“Conventional or alternative medicine?
Why not have both? It then becomes a question of reviewing all the options to find the one treatment that is effective. Or the right combination of both types.”

As an experienced ear, nose and throat specialist and a specialist in ENT surgery, I am the physician of your choice when it comes to dealing with all your concerns about surgery. Whether it is about surgery of the larynx or about deafness or snoring issues, many problems can be solved as long as the cause was diagnosed correctly.
Most diseases of the larynx cause hoarseness and other voice changes.
Surgery to improve breathing such as functional operations of the nasal septum or operations on the turbinates (nasal conchae) are carried out through the nostrils.
The CO2 laser is used in the tumour surgery on the pharynx and larynx to avoid any external damages of the neck.
In the middle ear and in the inner ear all technically feasible operations of hearing improvement and also the implantation of hearing aids can be performed.
Cosmetic changes of the shape of the nose usually coincide with problems of the function of the nose. (Treatment of nasal obstruction can be combined with cosmetic changes).
Snoring usually develops in nocturnal mouth breathing caused by vibrations in the throat or gullet. If weight loss and sleep hygiene have been unsuccessful, the nasal breathing is improved or normalized (nasal septum correction, reduction of the turbinates) by the ENT surgery. The normalization of nasal breathing also eliminates the annoying nocturnal dry mouth.
Tumours of the major salivary glands (parotid, submandibular or sublingual gland) can occasionally become malignant and should be surgically removed as soon as possible.
Tears running down the cheek may be caused by narrowed or scarred lacrimal ducts as a result of inflammation in the nose or tear ducts.
Dr. Christoph Reisser in Vienna otolaryngology for children
As an otolaryngologist for children I pay special attention to the diseases and problems of my young patients. In extensive interviews with the children themselves as well as with their parents I do my best to diagnose the problems and to determine the right treatment.
Your ear, nose and throat doctor in Vienna ENT specialist
My main area of expertise is the operative treatment of spinal diseases and tumors of the
central nervous system.
To determine the optimal therapy for each individual patient, close
collaboration with colleagues in related disciplines (physiotherapy, orthopedics,
interventional pain therapy, neurology) is essential. I have conducted well over 10
microscopic surgeries to date, currently at a rate of 300 interventions per year. Since 1986, I
have been taking appointments at my neurosurgical private practice in Vienna’s 12th district.
At a time when medical technologies are advancing by leaps and bounds, holistic care
becomes all the more important. Only who takes the time can deliver optimal treatment. My
aim is not to “doctor” diagnostic findings and medical imaging, but to determine the best
course of action in light of the patient’s clinical symptoms and medical history.
Minimally invasive surgery
Astonishing technological innovations have made possible minimally invasive surgical
interventions in both the brain and the spine. This method, it should be noted, is not primarily
aimed at the smallest possible opening but serves to protect the more sensitive, deep-set
structures of the nervous system. The key to a successful operation is to strike a balance
between the optimal technique and a personal approach adapted to the individual patient.

Döbling private clinic
Holistic health care means saving time and effort: With a primary care doctor, you only need to make one appointment to discuss any variety of health issues you might be experiencing, whether physical, mental or emotional.
Invested in providing meaningful, relationship-centred care, Dr. Sabanas seeks to understand his patients' specific life circumstances in his development of effective and thorough treatment plans. Knowledgeable and approachable, his fields of expertise are in primary care medicine and family medicine, as well as in preventive and emergency medicine.
"An important part of my philosophy is to prioritise my patients, taking all the time they need and employing openness, patience and understanding in describing their condition and the best course of therapy to alleviate and remedy their ailments."
Primary Care Doctor?
What is a Primary Care Physician? Your doctor makes the first point of contact with undiagnosed health concerns as well as undertakes the continuing care of various medical conditions.
Holistic health care means saving time and effort: With a primary care doctor, you only need to make one appointment to discuss any variety of health issues you might be experiencing, whether physical, mental or emotional.
Managing chronic diseases successfully: Scheduling regular visits and performing routine tests are two ways your doctor can help you to better monitor a chronic illness.
High level of comfort, e.g. via house visits: Choosing a primary care doctor you trust is the first step. The next step is scheduling regular appointments, such that you can discuss your concerns and overall health.
Doctor knows your health history, and identifies health issues early: Routine visits with your primary care provider not only maintain your comfort level, but also help establish your health history. Knowledge of your medical history as well as your family health history is imperative for the prevention of disease and also helps your doctor catch early symptoms of dangerous conditions in time.
Reduced frequency of hospital and ER visits – the most up-to-date research shows that patients who regularly visit their primary care physicians have fewer hospital and emergency visits than those who do not employ primary care.
Surgical operations are performed where possible and appropriate minimally invasive (keyhole surgery)
You can be treated by me Wilhelminenspital or Rudolfinerhaus.
At the age of 23 I have became a medical doctor and begun my education as a surgeon. At the age of 30 I was one of the youngest specialists in Austria
During my education as a specialist, I have had an opportunity to perform a big amount of operations and gather a great experience.
1987 I was asked to build up a Breast ambulatory at the Wilhelminenspital. Since then I am a head of it. Since 2011 we are a certified Breast Health Center.
Abdominal surgery includes a wide spectrum. Beside the routine surgeries such as
Appendectomy, removal of the gallbladder and hernias, I perform also large surgeries – tumor surgeries on abdomen, colon and pancreas (if possible laparoscopically)
Diseases of a woman‘s breast are a heavy burden for the patients. As a woman, I am well aware of what I am talking about.
Woman are feared to be defaced after the surgery. Thanks God in the most of cases these fears are left in the past. About 70 per cent of all the surgeries today are being performed breast preserving, mostly with a very good cosmetic result.
The best prevention to avoid the colon cancer is a colonoscopy.
Almost all the colon cancers result out of the polyps. If they are recognized and removed in an early stage, the disease has no chances.
This examination is considered to be unpleasant, but you have nothing to fear: colonoscopy and gastroscopy are being performed under twilight sleep and is completely painless.
all arthroscopic interventions
- Ligament injuries
- all arthroscopic interventions including meniscus-preserving meniscal sutures
In the clinics in which I perform surgical procedure, only tried and tested prostheses of the last generation are used. In order to achieve the best possible result, it is important to me to analyse the preoperative X-ray image exactly and to use the data obtained for the precise planning of the operation. All operations I perform are explained in detail to the patient and any risks are discussed.
- artificial hip joint (cementless)
- finger jerking - nerve constrictions (carpal tunnel syndrome)
- Hallux valgus - hammer toes - Morton's neuroma (neural growth) - metatarsalgias
- arthroscopic interventions (removal of calcium, bursa removal, etc.)
all infiltration techniques (pain therapy)
Since spring 2012, I have also been offering autologous blood infiltration in my ordination. Approx. 15 ml of blood are taken from the patient, separated into two phases in a centrifuge, and the phase rich in growth factors is injected into the affected joint or body region for cartilage or tissue regeneration. No other substances are added to the blood. Three to five injections are recommended.
The most common indications are:
- Arthrosis of the large joints
- Sports injuries (muscle and tendon injuries)
- Tendon attachment problems such as heel spurs and tennis elbow
More and more scientific studies confirm the good results of this new form of therapy. After injuries, the regeneration time can be significantly reduced with the help of this method.
I have been using and appreciating this successful form of therapy since 1998. As one of the first users in Austria, I can draw on a wealth of experience.
The shock wave is an excellent method of therapy for:
- Calcareous shoulder
- tennis elbow
- muscle injuries
- changes in the attachment of tendons
- Achilles tendon pain and irritation
- patellar tip syndrome
In the first week of life, the necessary ultrasound examinations are usually carried out in the hospital, between the 6th and 8th week of life another ultrasound examination is necessary. You can also have this carried out in my ordination.
- Neural therapy
- Infiltration therapy
In direct dialogue with the orthopedic technician - he will also come to my practice at your appointment and I will develop your insole together with him. The exact analysis of the gait pattern and the foot problem then results in your personal insole, which is adjusted in my practice together with the orthopedic technician.
During my studies I was a member of the Austrian junior national team in athletics. Ball, discus, spear, triple jump and decathlon were my disciplines. After my training, I continued to look after the team as a sports doctor and also as a trainer at club level. I also know from personal experience which view and which orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists are selected.

In order to increase the diagnostic and therapeutic certainty, Prof. Winkler in some cases takes a very conscious step towards interdisciplinary consideration of the patient's complaints, which is guaranteed by the Operngasse medical community. The patient is the focus of the efforts of experienced, long-term clinically active specialists from the most important areas of internal medicine, such as hematology / oncology (Prim. Prof. Leopold Öhler), as well as rheumatology (Doz. Daniel Aletaha).
As a doctor he places great importance to a detailed medical history ("anamnesis") and an accurate clinical examination. Based on this, further diagnostic or therapeutic steps are carried out if necessary. Often, however, a clear picture of the causes of the complaints emerges after a single conversation or after discussing existing findings. This interpretation of the findings requires a great deal of clinical experience, which Prof. Winkler has acquired through his work in laboratory medicine and in collaboration with many other medical disciplines. Findings on borrelia, chlamydia, other infectious agents as well as on various immunological and inflammation-related parameters are typical examples of this. For an infectiologist with experience in tropical medicine, this also includes illnesses that acquired while traveling or are less common in our latitudes (from malaria, dengue, various parasitosis to familial ones
