New medical director at Lanserhof has childhood connection to resort
POSTED 13 Sep 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
Dr Katharina Sandtner has been appointed medical director at Lanserhof Lans in Austria, effective January 2019.

As the new medical director, Sandtner will focus on further advancing the Lans Med Concept, building on research pioneered by the team of specialists at Lanserhof to develop a unique health concept designed to support the natural healing process and promote physical well-being and inner balance.

Sandtner will take over the medical management of Lanserhof Lans from Dr Georg Kettenhuber, who will take a personal break; however, Dr Kettenhuber will remain connected to Lanserhof ongoing.

Dr Sandtner grew up in Lans, Austria, and has a connection to the resort that goes back to her childhood.

During Kindergarten, Sandtner befriended the head chef’s daughter. She and the other children in the neighbourhood were allowed to use the swimming pool at Lanserhof, and often spent days exploring the Alpine property. However, the connection to Lanserhof did not stop there.

Sandtner later completed her medical studies at the Medical University of Innsbruck, where she received her doctorate in human medicine. During her studies, she worked at Lanserhof Lans, at first in the medical night service. There she accompanied guests during their journey, treated them in the therapy department, and also worked at reception, taking care of large and small tasks; in short: she got to know every corner of Lanserhof Lans.

After graduating from her studies in 2008, Sandtner finished her night duty work at Lanserhof and completed an apprenticeship in the practice of Dr Andreas Pfretschner in Innsbruck. It was he who introduced her to the field of holistic medicine (including F.X. Mayr medicine) and philanthropy.

Afterwards, Sandtner completed her rotation at the BKH Hall and the University Hospital Innsbruck and decided to return to Lanserhof Lans before her specialist training in 2012.

Since then, Sandtner has worked as a general practitioner at Lanserhof Lans and has been deputy medical director since 2015.

During her time with Lanserhof, she obtained a diploma in diagnostics and therapy according to Dr. F.X. Mayr, received a diploma in neural therapy and a diploma in orthomolecular medicine.
