Thomas Hausner is co-director of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Traumatology, the research centre in cooperation with AUVA, and medical director and chief physician for trauma surgery at the AUVA Trauma Centre Vienna, Lorenz Böhler site.
Dr Hausner studied medicine at the universities of Innsbruck and Vienna. In 1987, he spent a semester abroad at the Bichat – Claude Bernard University Hospital in Paris, France. He was awarded his doctorate (Dr. med. univ.) in July 1993.
He then trained as a specialist surgeon at the hospital of Hainburg and spent another 6 months at the Clinic for Orthopaedics, Hand and Peripheral Nerve Surgery at the University Hospital in Paris during this time.
In 2003, he trained as a specialist in surgery at the emergency hospital Lorenz Böhler in Vienna, where he later worked as a consultant. His scientific work for the LBI Trauma began as early as 2004. From 2009 to 2014, he lead the Department of Surgery with a focus on Trauma & Hand Surgery at the clinical center Hainburg. Despite the geographical distance, the proximity to LBI Trauma remained. Since January 2015, he has been medical director and primary physician for trauma surgery at the AUVA Trauma Centre Vienna, Lorenz Böhler site. In November of the same year, Dr Hausner received his habilitation in trauma surgery and was appointed private lecturer at Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg.
