Portrait Prof. Jörn Kircher


Board Certified Specialist in Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery

I was born and raised in Schwerin. After my medical education and surgical training, I was very happy to return to the starting point of my clinical career in Hamburg and live very happily in Sülldorf with my wife and two children.
