In memoriam Heinz Stammberger

In loving memory of
Prof. Dr. Heinz Stammberger

Prof. Stammberger was a pioneer in nasal endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery. He continued to further develop Prof. Messerklinger’s technique, and taught it with incomparable passion throughout the world in innumerable courses and congresses.
He established Graz as a premier center for endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery, and while losing him cannot be expressed by words, his legacy will be carried on forever.
His team here in Graz wants to especially thank him not only for his guidance and mentorship, but also for being the extraordinary man he was, with enormous wisdom and knowledge far beyond our field, yet remaining humble and always there for all of us.

The outstanding rhinologist Prof. Stammberger will forever remain in our minds, but it is our friend Heinz who will always remain in our hearts.
