"The results for patient care are remarkable." Dr. Georg Hoene on his visit to the Facial Nerve Center at Mass. Eye & Ear.
Over the past few weeks we've had the opportunity to work with Dr. Georg Hoene visiting from Universitätsmedizin Göttingen (Georg- August- University of Göttingen) in Germany. Georg has recently received his Doctorate in Medicine in 2020 as well as MD Degree in 2018. Georg is in his 2nd year in the Residency Program OMFS at University of Goettingen while in his 4th year working toward his DMD.
Dr. Hoene states that the international attention Harvard Medical School has generated made him want to visit Boston. While at the Facial Nerve Center, Georg learned multidisciplinary approaches to the complex field of facial nerve disorders. The FNC team is dedicated and driven by innovation with state-of-the-art surgical procedures and suitably, the results for patient care are remarkable.
Prior to working in Germany, Dr. Hoene spent time at Queen Mary Hospital (Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine) in Hong Kong as well as Groote Schuur Hospital (University of Cape Town) in South Africa. When he is not traveling, Georg occupies his time with his family and partaking in many different sports, but more specifically, he enjoys team handball the most.
Dr. Hoene will be here for another 2 weeks, if you see him, be sure to say hi! Or you can check out more info on Dr. Hoene and his colleagues and see what they do at http://www.mkg.med.uni-goettingen.de
