About Univ.-Prof. Dr Christine Radtke - Experienced Specialist for Plastic and Esthetic Medicine and Hand Surgery

Univ.-Prof. Dr Christine Radtke is a specialist in plastic, and esthetic surgery and practice owner of the Praxisklinik am Burggarten in Vienna. Sie is also a full professor and head of the plastic and reconstructive surgery department at the Medical University of Vienna.

Prof. Radtke is an internationally well-respected specialist with many years of experience in a wide range of treatments. Her clinical expertise includes classical plastic-esthetic surgery and reconstructive surgery after accidents and burns, tumor surgeries, or other defects. As a specialist in hand surgery, she successfully treats, among others, carpal tunnel syndromes, tendon injuries, trigger fingers, and many other defects of the hand and wrist. Her services also include therapy for nerve injuries and chronic pain syndromes and tumor surgery for skin cancer, breast cancer, and soft tissue tumors.

Well-Respected Plastic Surgeon in Vienna

Plastic esthetic surgery is a demanding field of medicine that requires excellent professional expertise and a strong sense of empathy when advising patients. Prof. Radtke performs esthetic corrections of fat and connective tissue at the Medical University of Vienna and in her private medical practice. She offers the entire spectrum from liposuction, breast augmentation, breast and abdominal lift (mommy makeover), to full-body lift. Her expertise also includes the treatment of congenital lymphedema or lymphedema acquired throughout a lifetime: painful swelling under the skin caused by impaired lymphatic drainage. In addition, surgical correction is often the only promising treatment for fat storage disorders (lipedema). Lipedema manifests, among others, in the accumulation of fat in the thighs known as "saddlebags" and cannot be reduced even by strict dieting. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Prof. Radtke accompanies her patients from the beginning of treatment until they are discharged from the clinic. Surgical procedures are explained and discussed in detail, carefully planned, and prepared.

Plastic-Esthetic Facial Treatments

The desire for an attractive and fresh appearance arises in many people when they get older. Treating wrinkles and sagging or drooping tissue in the face or neck is a particular field of medicine that requires esthetic know-how and excellent surgical skills from the attending physician and surgeon. Prof. Radtke masters the entire spectrum of facelifting, eyelid plastic surgery, and correction of the nose and ears. Wrinkles can be smoothed with the help of injections or surgically tightened, depending on the patient's wishes. In facial cosmetic corrections, detailed consultations before the treatments are important to achieve a result that meets the patient's wishes, consider their anatomical conditions and allows for a natural appearance.

Expert for Breast Surgery

The optimization of the female and also male breast is also part of Prof. Radtke's services. The breasts can be enlarged or reduced by surgical intervention. Especially women who have undergone breast removal (mastectomy) as part of tumor surgery subsequently desire the restoration of a shapely, feminine breast. Pregnancies and breastfeeding or increasing age can also cause the breasts to become saggy. After pregnancies, abdominal tissue often loses elasticity and tension as well. Under the term "Mommy Makeover," Prof. Radtke offers a combination of breast and abdominal lift, which can help women regain a better body image after having children. Men with an enlarged mammary gland (gynecomastia) or female-looking fat deposits in the chest can have a masculine chest restored through surgery.

Reconstructive Surgery After Accidents and Burn Injuries

Accidents and burns, tumor diseases, or other defects can cause externally visible scars and deformities that can affect the self-confidence of the affected person and often also interfere with critical bodily functions, such as eating. The same applies to congenital malformations. Due to her additional qualification as a specialist in reconstructive surgery, Prof. Radtke can compensate for functional defects and, at the same time, restore an outwardly harmonious appearance using procedures of plastic-esthetic surgery. In doing so, Prof. Radtke and her team pursue a holistic treatment concept according to the most modern medical standards.

Specialist in Hand Surgery

As a specialist in hand surgery, Prof. Radtke treats acute and chronic injuries and deformities of the hand at the highest medical level. These include carpal tunnel syndromes, tendon injuries, trigger fingers, and many other defects. The hand is a highly complex and delicate body part that requires the highest expertise from diagnosis to successful treatment. Prof. Radtke's services include conservative and surgical treatment of all diseases in hand. In addition, she offers various hand rejuvenation and beautification procedures as part of her cosmetic surgery services.

Removal of Skin Alterations

The treatment of benign and malignant skin alterations on the whole body, especially in the face, is a specialty of Prof. Radtke. Through a minor surgical procedure, moles, malignant or benign skin alterations can be removed. She also treats and removes mammary carcinomas (breast cancer) or other soft tissue tumors in women and men. Among other procedures, Prof. Radtke operates on and transplants lymph nodes in the areas affected by the tumor.

Nerve Surgery

Prof. Radtke treats nerve compression syndromes and nerve injuries, and chronic pain syndromes in her private practice and at the Medical University of Vienna. Nerve compression syndromes occur due to sustained physical pressure on the affected peripheral nerve. The constrictions cause neurological pain that patients find very uncomfortable and distressing. Nerve injuries caused by accidents, cuts, punctures, or bruises are also part of Prof. Radtke's treatment spectrum.

Information About Vienna

Specialist doctors and medical centres in Vienna

The Austrian capital is located in the northwest of the country at the junction of the eastern Alpine foothills and the Pannonian Plain. Its namesake is the small river Wien, but the city is associated with the much larger Danube River that also flows by the city. Vienna is divided into so-called districts, so the old town is also the Inner District, around which the other 22 districts are arranged concentrically. In 2001 the historic city centre was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
