Privatklinik Döbling - Döbling Private Hospital

The Privatklinik Döbling has ranked among Vienna's premier hospitals for many years. Patients and doctors from both Austria and abroad hold its expert competence, high standards of quality, team-oriented leadership, and technical standards in extremely high regard.

Prevention is key

Many illnesses respond well to a healthy lifestyle and tailored treatment, or indeed can be avoided entirely. Your medical check-up will take into account any genetic or lifestyle-related risk factors, as well as any illnesses that may already exist. Our tailored care and treatment is built on a modular system, put together according to your own needs and wishes. Further information can be found in our price list:

Univ.Prof. Prim. Dr. Christian Kainz
Gynaecology and obstetrics

Gynaecology and obstetrics

University professor in gynaecology, with over 20 years' experience in operative gynaecology (minimally invasive, plastic and oncological operations). Additional specialisation in conservative management: hormone treatment, infections, and cytostatic treatment.

The aim of a modern gynaecology treatment is to be as minimally invasive as possible. That means treating as much as is necessary, under the maximum standards of safety, and operating in a way that preserves the organs. This achieves excellent, safe treatment results with as few side effects as possible.

Prof. Kainz employs his high level of expertise in the following areas:

  • Precancerous cervix (dysplasia of the cervix)
  • Breast cancer ‒ surgery and drug treatment
  • Female genital cancers
  • Endometriosis ‒ drug treatment and surgery
  • Myomas ‒ minimally invasive organ-preserving surgery and drug treatment
  • Female urinary incontinence and genital prolapse
  • Hysteroscopy (uterine endoscopy), laparoscopy

Dr. Heinz Winkler
Orthopaedics and orthopaedic surgery

Orthopaedics and orthopaedic surgery

For many years, the Osteitis Centre at the Privatklinik Döbling has been regarded as one of the premier clinics for the treatment of infections in the skeletal system. Patients from both Austria and abroad hold its specialist competence and high standards of quality in very high regard.

Infections of the bone (osteitis) or bone marrow (osteomyelitis) are some of the most difficult diseases to treat. Previously, numerous operations and months of hospitalisation were required; now, however, it is often possible to remedy the problem with a single operation and only a short time in hospital.

The principle of our method consists of administering the antibiotics in a considerably higher concentration straight to the site of the problem – thereby not putting a strain on the rest of the body. At the same time, existing bone defects are also reconstructed. Where required, implants can be immediately combined with this treatment, thus swiftly restoring the original function.

A multidisciplinary network comprising other specialist disciplines (including internal medicine, ENT, ophthalmology, gynaecology, paediatrics) means that your concern can be investigated quickly and competently.

Orthopaedics, orthopaedic surgery, sports orthopaedics

Prof. Dr. Klaus Schatz has ranked among the country's most experienced shoulder surgeons for some two decades, and is also an internationally sought-after expert and speaker as well as surgeon.

As chief of the shoulder department at AKH Wien (Vienna General Hospital) since 2004, he has regularly carried out complex arthroscopic and open shoulder operations, and is always at the cutting edge of science and technology thanks to his international work.

His work as a shoulder specialist includes joint-preserving arthroscopic operations, minimally invasive endoprosthetic joint replacements applying (shaft-free) implants that preserve the bone as much as possible, as well as surgical reconstructions in cases of high-grade degenerative joint disease (inverse prosthesis).

In addition to treating chronic joint diseases, Prof. Schatz is of course able to assess and treat recent and acute injuries at short notice, thanks to his close collaboration with the Privatklinik Döbling. The Privatklinik Döbling is pleased to put the full range of its equipment, services and premises at our disposal.

Besides his high level of expertise and years of surgical experience, Prof. Schatz believes in a deeply personal approach to treating all his patients. Respect and undivided attention, no matter how big or small the problem, form the cornerstone of his medical approach.

General medicine, internal medicine, cardiology

I am a consultant in internal medicine, with additional training in cardiology. My specialism is in non-invasive cardiology ‒ echocardiography (also vascular sonography) and all non-invasive diagnostic procedures. This includes rhythmology with assessment of pacemaker indication, implantation and monitoring as well as the management and long-term care of patients suffering from heart failure and cardiological psychosomatics.

I also focus on preventative medicine, which is why I place a great deal of value on nutrition in my consultations as well as on exercise therapy and changes to lifestyle drawn on through my training in sports medicine.

The thyroid and the heart are closely interlinked, which has given me plenty of experience in diagnosing and managing thyroid issues.

Prof. Dr. Alexander Flor


Venous medicine has changed markedly. Gentle methods designed to spare the body are replacing the customary procedures.
I use a range of current procedures and will recommend the treatment that is right for you. Treating your vein disorder or complaint is just as important to me as how your legs look afterwards. By employing laser energy, today we can remove even deep-set varicose veins gently and painlessly within just a few minutes, and without requiring any incisions. Minimally invasive surgery delivers cosmetically impressive results. Thanks to colour ultrasound imaging, we can provide a tailored treatment and preserve healthy sections of the veins.

"If I'd known how smoothly and successfully the treatment would go, I would have come much sooner" is what we hear most from patients. Please visit us for a consultation! Because the earlier we treat you, the better it is for your health.

At our Vein Centre, you will receive state-of-the-art assessment and treatment in a pleasant, modern setting at the Privatklinik Döbling.

Laser, microfoam and minimally invasive surgery. As a member of the American College of Phlebology, my utmost wish is to administer the best possible form of treatment tailored precisely to your needs. Not only is the medical aspect extremely important to me, but the end physical appearance is too. In collaboration with vein centres in the USA, Brazil, and Germany, we are able to meet the highest requirements and standards.

Cataract surgery and refractive laser surgery

With over 20 years of experience and having performed well over 10,000 cataract operations, Dr Kruger's specialist expertise lies in the surgical correction of visual defects. Often, the wish to dispense with the need for glasses can often be achieved even after an operation for cataracts, using modern intraocular lens technologies.

For years, FEMTO-iLASIK has been considered the safest and most state-of-the-art method of treating defective vision such as myopia and corneal irregularity on a lasting basis. The team at the Eye Laser Centre Vienna is a pioneer in this technology in Vienna.

  • Cataracts treated with state-of-the-art lens technology
  • Treatment of presbyopia with multifocal lens
