Prof. Dr.

Marc Possover

"Suffering pain should not be a life sentence. I have made it my business to find the true source of the pain and discomfort in each and every patient and to treat it - even if there is a seemingly impossible problem. An important approach here is the consideration of the functions of the pelvic nerves in the context of Neuropelveology".
