Dr. Alexander Kraft has more than 40 years of experience working as an orthopedic surgeon.
He was born and raised in Vienna, Austria. Dr. Kraft started his orthopedic internship at the University Hospital Innsbruck where he was trained in spine surgery and later continued to University Hospital Vienna. Back then Dr. Kraft was a member of the team of Prof. Karl Zweymüller developing the cement-free hip replacement.
Later on, he changed to City Hospital Zwettl where he was appointed as surgeon in chief in the orthopedic department.
Spinal diseases are treated by doctors from different faculties, which means each doctor sees the problem from his point of view, and the patient will not always get the treatment they need, but more likely to receive the treatment the doctor is familiar with.
In this case, when patients are not sure if the offered treatment is the best suitable for them, a second opinion by a specialist who is not financially involved with the treatment of the patient, might be very helpful.
