*Prof. Dr. med. Roland Axel Werzinger studied medicine as a medical officer candidate, completing his pre-clinical studies at the University of Regensburg and the clinical part at TU Munich/Klinikum rechts der Isar.
His training as a specialist for family medicine was completed while he was a medical staff officer at the German Army Hospital in Munich, which is also where he began his surgeon and trauma surgeon training.
The further specialisation in orthopaedics at the Army Hospital in Munich in Murnau was suspended when he was called to a high position as lead diving physician of the Army at the Army’s Pioneer School and University in Munich. His surgeon career on his way to becoming an orthopaedist continued simultaneously through close contact to the Trauma Clinic in Murnau and to Colonel (Medical Corps) Dr. Talsky.
Dr. Werzinger completed his active service staff officer career as ward physician at the Army Hospital in Berlin, university hospital of the Charité. As a civilian, he completed his specialist training in the field of endoprosthetics at the hospital Barmherzige Brüder in Munich and in the field of paediatric orthopaedics at the Paediatric Orthopaedics Hospital in Aschau.
Since May 1998, Prof. Dr. Werzinger has had a practice specialised in orthopaedics and family medicine, with a focus on surgery. He was recognised as a specialist for traumatology/trauma surgery in 2017 by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science.
The expansion of the practice in the Schwabing neighbourhood of Munich resulted in the formation of the Sportorthopädische Zentren München under his direction, with a number of centres in Munich united under one umbrella – S.O.U.R.C.E.
