Born 1956 in Leverkusen, Dr. Jahn graduated in Veterinary Medicine in Hannover in 1982. Two years later he finished his dissertation “surfactant analysis in bronchial secretion of healthy horses and horses with chronic disease of the airway” at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Hannover. After a few years as an assistant clinician in several veterinary hospitals – for example equine hospital in Telgte and equine hospital at the racing track Gelsenkirchen (Dr. Tilkorn) – Werner moved to Wahlstedt where he was working for 6 years. During that period of time he became a certified specialist in horses.
In 1993 the Bargteheide Equine Hospital was found by Dr. Werner Jahn. His main professional interests are surgery, orthopedics and the medical attendance of sport horses.
Werner has been invited speaker in several national and international congresses and courses. He is a member of the German x-ray committee and a consulter for several working groups of the association for equine medicine.
