After his internationally aligned studies of medicine in Germany (University Mainz), England (University of Newcastle upon Tyne) and USA (UCSD, University of California, San Diego), Dr. Mahn began his training for board certification in orthopedics and accident surgery at one of the largest and prestigious clinics in this medical field in Germany, at the Orthopedic Department in München-Harlaching (Director Professor H. M. Mayer, M.D.) This followed two years in Switzerland, first at the sports orthopedically orientated Permanence Hospital in Bern (Chief Surgeons U. Vogel, M.D. and O. Gorschewsky, M.D.), then at the Swiss Olympic Medical Center of the Confederate Agency for Sports in Magglingen (Chief Surgeons Professor B. Marti, M.D. and Professor R. Biedert, M.D.), where the main clinical focus was on the care of squad athletes and professional athletes. The next stage of his specialist training took Dr. Mahn to Australia, where he worked at the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital in Brisbane (University Hospital, Director P. Fitzpatrick, M.D.) with a clinical focus on total joint replacement. Back in Germany, he concluded his specialist training at the Dr-Horst-Schmidt Clinics in Wiesbaden (Director Professor K. Wenda, M.D.) with a clinical focus on accident surgery.
This was followed by a short stint of specialist training at the Dr-Horst-Schmidt Clinics and then an appointment as a resident at the Asklepios Paulinen Clinic in Wiesbaden (Chief Surgeons Professor K.-H. Link, M.D., Dr.h.c. and University Lecturer Dr. L. Perlick), where Dr. Mahn worked with focus on arthroscopies / minimally invasive joint surgery and sports medicine.
After this, he went into private practice in Bad Vilbel, first in a group practice, later setting up his own.
Given his high-level active athletic past, he ended up selecting the field of orthopedics / accident surgery / sports medicine, although he initially planned a career as a heart surgeon.
Dr. Mahn has remained true to sports and continued to treat top athletes, e.g. as team physician of the German under-20 national football team (DFB) and, up till summer 2016, additionally for the Swiss national women’s football team (SFV), whom he accompanied to the World Championship in Canada in June 2015. Besides footballers, his patients include both professional and amateur judoists, gymnasts, triathletes, tennis and golf players.
Additionally, Dr. Mahn is a qualified football trainer (Elite Youth license, UEFA B-Level) and trains the most talented football players aged 11 to 16 at the DFB Academy in Frankfurt.
