Tim Kurpanek

Professional career

After my teacher training for secondary level II at the University of Dortmund, I also successfully completed my studies in human medicine at the Ruhr University of Bochum and the University of Essen in 2005. In addition to my student teaching, I gained further experience working as a surgical assistant in a private clinic for plastic and aesthetic surgery in Dortmund from 2000-2003.

Between 2005 and 2017, professional stations followed as a resident in the Clinic for General, Visceral and Trauma Surgery at the Kath. Krankenhaus Unna under the direction of Prof. Mittelkötter and in the form of a rotation to the University Clinic St. Josefs-Hospital Bochum under the direction of Prof. Uhl.
Upon obtaining the title of "Specialist in General Surgery" in 2014, I held the position of Senior Physician in the Department of Visceral Surgery at the Josefs-Hospital Dortmund.

Until the end of 2021, I took over leading functions of the surgical emergency room in various hospitals in an independent capacity, before expanding the LIPOCURA® team at the beginning of 2022.

Experience and work in the field of lipedema

In the course of my medical career and especially in my function as a surgeon, I repeatedly encountered the phenomenon of lipedema. The desire to alleviate the physical and emotional suffering of the women affected and the great interest in the treatment of the disease lipedema have led me to work in this field.

The specialist lipedema treatment at LIPOCURA®

Together with my team, I look forward to helping lipedema patients lead a life free of symptoms. To this end, we follow a holistic treatment approach and are there for you not only before but also after your surgery.

We would be happy to advise you in a personal consultation about the possibilities of your individual lipedema treatment.
