Hagen Tillger – Specialist for Surgery

Specialist for Surgery

Since 2012 I have been a specialist in surgery according to the further training regulations of the Bavarian State Medical Association of 1993, which included a very broad but profound surgical further training with a minimum number of surgical interventions in the fields of vascular surgery, thoracic surgery, trauma surgery and visceral surgery. The further training regulations of 2004, on the other hand, are geared from the outset to early specialisation.

In the same practical and surgical quality I gained a specialized qualification in the evaluation and performance of surgical interventions in plastic and aesthetic surgery, orthopaedics and spinal surgery.  These qualifications were not necessary for fulfilling the requirements for this specialist qualification, but they determined my work in the clinic where my surgical teachers worked.

The guidelines of the Bavarian Medical Association according to the further training regulations of 1993 for the qualification as a specialist in surgery can be found here.

Emergency medicine

Emergency doctor („Notarzt“)

Since 2006, I have the „expertise rescue service“ and was active without interruption as an emergency doctor. Most of the time I occupied the emergency medical service vehicle 3.76.1 at the emergency medical facility in Munich South, which was later renamed „NEF Thalkirchen“.

Since I performed up to 8 emergency doctor 24-hour services per month at the location with the highest to second highest annual site usage frequency in the Munich-wide comparison. I’ve had at least 11,000 missions and correspondingly numerous emergency care of acutely ill or injured people.

This should certainly make me one of the most experienced paramedics or emergency physicians in Munich. Since 2013 I was active as emergency ambulance speaker of NEF Thalkirchen.

My experience of emergency medical care increased to the same extent as the number of curious and unusual use experiences. Only special mission-related occupations are reserved for unique experiences of a curious kind in strange locations.
How curious and interesting experience can sometimes be can be seen in numerous relevant books with operational reports. And they were by far not only enthusiastically read by insiders.
Also, I could certainly fill at least one book with ambulance stories, let’s see, maybe I’ll do that once.

The emergency medical driving over long periods of time can not be overcome by a pure application of expertise. Often the stakes go unintentionally beyond the professional impressions between doctor and patient. Especially when extreme situations and incisive circumstances exist.

These situations and pressures leave traces on the view of life, on one’s own character and on one’s own behavior. They separate the important from the unimportant relatively sharply.
And they also shape the understanding of the experience and needs of people in need. This experience can not teach a book or theory lesson or practical tutoring on its own.

Of course, my patients benefit directly from my emergency medical experience. I would also like to make it possible for new and old colleagues in the rescue service to learn and benefit from my experience in the form of courses and further education.

Emergency surgery

These types of surgical procedures need only be used in isolated cases in a surgical practice. Yet it is precisely these interventions that can actually make the difference between life and death.
As an experienced emergency and intensive care physician, I have often applied them to acutely lethally injured or ill people. Often I have thus prevented immediate death.
As a teacher of emergency medicine, it makes a difference whether mediated knowledge comes from one’s own experience or only from the textbook.

Typical life-saving emergency surgery

  • Tracheotomy
  • Needle decompression of the ribcage
  • chest tube

At regular rescue service symposia, I led workshops. In it, for example, I had the surgical techniques of such measures in theory and practice practiced on pig’s halfs. Understandably, these exercises were always enthusiastically received by the workshop participants on the realistic model.

Certified Instructor and Advanced Heart Attention Resuscitation Professional (AHA), Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS®)

Since 2017, I am the instructor and user of the AHA’s Advanced Resuscitation Actions ACLS standard.

This qualification includes a standard of highly efficient dynamics and communication during the care of a patient in a critically critical condition. Above all, it is about the effective and fast processes that are necessary for cardiovascular arrest in diagnostics and treatment.

But also algorithms for the effective recognition and treatment of acute cardiac arrhythmias, strokes and the acute coronary syndrome are trained in detail.

Of course, my patients benefit directly from my emergency medical experience. I would also like to make it possible for new and old colleagues in the rescue service to learn and benefit from my experience in the form of courses and further education.  http://cpr.heart.org/AHAECC/CPRAndECC/UCM_473161_CPR-and-ECC.jsp

Certified Severe Injury Computing Attorney by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS®)

Since 2016, I am a certified provider of the ATLS Standard for the seriously injured according to the American College of Surgeons.

ATLS® is a standardized, priority-oriented trauma management room for trauma patients. This training concept is taught worldwide, which guarantees the smooth cooperation of all certified users. The fast and accurate assessment of the condition of the trauma patient takes precedence. Likewise, it is often important for the patient not only to have rapid priority-oriented treatment. Life saving is also the quick decision, whether the available resources are sufficient.

Of course, my patients direcly benefit from this emergency medical qualification and I would like to make it possible for new and old colleagues in the rescue service to learn and benefit from my experience in the form of courses and further education. https://www.facs.org/quality-programs/trauma/atls

Additional qualification Organ Transplant Officer

In Germany all hospitals in which organ donation is physically and physically possible must name a transplant officer.

Their task is to report potential organ donors to the German Foundation for Organ Transplantation (DSO). At the hospital, they must organize the organ donation processes and train the medical and nursing staff. Particularly demanding is the task to accompany the members of the donor sensitively.

As a transplant officer of my former clinic I have acquired the appropriate qualifications of the Bavarian Medical Association.
