Deputy Managing Director
Biography – Assoc.-Prof. Dr. med. Bernhard Kreymann
Dr. Bernhard Kreymann is a gastroenterologist and inventor of the ADVOS procedure. During his time in a senior position in the Nephrological Department at the Munich University Hospital Rechts der Isar, he developed his first liver support therapy in 1995: single-pass albumin dialysis (SPAD), which is clinically effective but not cost-effective enough to be applied on a large scale.
Based on the experience of the first system, he invented the ADVOS procedure in 2002 and founded ADVITOS GmbH (previously Hepa Wash GmbH) in 2005.
