About MD J. Barthofer

I am a general medicine doctor, sports medicine and sports traumatology, as well as a narrow specialist in traumatology. A diploma from the Austrian Medical Chamber in Manual Medicine complements my education.

Thanks to my education and many years of experience, I can act as a team doctor for the Austrian skiing federation for leading athletes in ski jumping and Nordic biathlon. As such, I have already oversaw our team at several olympiads. It is a great honor for me, as the chief medical specialist of the Austrian Olympic Committee, to accompany the Austrian delegation to the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.

I’m especially intensively engaged in the latest surgical methods for knee surgery, which can significantly reduce the time for treating injuries.

My specialization in knee surgery, with several hundred surgeries per year, provides high quality medical care and high patient satisfaction.

In my practice in Linz, I devote time to my patients and accompany them from the first diagnosis to the complete healing of their diseases.

Thorough diagnosis of your diseases, as well as consultation on appropriate treatment options and the development of a treatment plan, taking into account your needs, take time. Time, which is often not at the disposal of the attending physician when working in a hospital or in insurance treatment, but is a prerequisite for an optimal treatment result and high patient satisfaction.

This time I will willingly give you in my paid practice!

We are intensively engaged in the subsequent physiotherapeutic treatment of surgical trauma, post-traumatic, orthopedic and neurological clinical symptoms.
