Your Shoulder Specialist and Sports Orthopaedic Surgeon in Vienna

Shoulder Pain? Sport Injuries?

Individual Solutions Are My Top Priority!


As a specialist for shoulder injuries and sport orthopaedics, I am your contact for any kind of shoulder pain and sports and shoulder injuries and will accompany you from your first treatment onwards.
As a shoulder surgeon, I also perform minimally invasive surgery, when necessary, in addition to conservative, non-surgical and bioregenerative treatment. I place special emphasis on accelerated rehabilitation so that you can return quickly to work, sport and everyday activities.

Treatment of Shoulder Pain

I can offer you the best possible treatment using bioregenerative treatments, pain therapy, minimally invasive, reconstructive surgery, and interdisciplinary cooperation.
I can also provide an artificial shoulder joint (shoulder prosthesis), should reconstructive surgery not be possible anymore. The artificial joint will be fitted perfectly via virtual 3D planning before the first incision is made.
My accelerated rehabilitation therapy following the surgery will allow you to move your arm immediately and does not require full immobilisation.

Sports Injuries and Stress Symptoms

As a sports orthopaedic surgeon, I am also your go-to-specialist for stress symptoms and sports injuries of any kind and will help you keep doing your favourite sport and achieve your sport-related goals using tailor-made therapies and bioregenerative treatments.
However, whether your treatment will be surgical or non-surgical must be decided individually, on a case-by-case basis. My concept of accelerated rehabilitation emphasises a quick return to exercising in all types of treatment.

„He who ceases to be better,
ceases to be good“

„Lukas Brandner and Dr. Ulrich Lanz conducted the surgery on my biceps tendon in Vienna two days ago, as my shoulder had been causing me severe problems over the past months and would not get better despite rehab and full rest. The surgery was successful and I’m already back home. The upcoming months won’t be easy — however, I will do everything to come back even stronger!!! Greets Martin“
