I am an ENT surgeon working in a German hospital. Ask me anything!
Hello there! My name is Kevin and I am working as an ENT (ear nose throat) surgeon in a big German hospital.
I am a resident and working as the head doctor of our ward and am responsible for our seriously ill patients (please not that I am not the head of the whole department). Besides working there and doing surgery I am also working at our (outpatient) doctor's office where we are treating pretty much everything related to ENT diseases.
Since our hospital got a Covid-19 ward I am also treating patients who got a serious Covid-19 infection.
In my "free time" I work as lecturer for physiology, pathophysiology and surgery at a University of Applied Sciences.
In my free time I am sharing my work life on Instagram (@doc.kev). You can find a proof for this IAmA in the latest post. (If further proof is needed, I can send a photo of my Physician Identity Card to the mods).
Feel free to ask me anything. However, please understand that if you ask questions about your physical condition, my anwers can't replace a visit to your doctor.
Update: Wow! I haven't expected so many questions. I need a break (still have some stuff to do) but I try my best to answer all of your questions.
Update 2: Thanks a lot for that IAmA. I need to go to bed now and would like to ask you to stop posting questions (it's late in the evening in Germany and I need to work tomorrow). I will try to answer the remaining questions in the next days. Since this IAmA was so successful I will start another one soon. If you couldn't ask something this time, you will get another chance.
