Following his graduation he studied otology with Adam Politzer at the University of Vienna. He was appointed to the faculty of the University of Vienna in 1918, heading the university clinic that was established by Viktor Urbantschitsch. The Neumann clinic was later converted into a speech and hearing clinic by Emil Froeschels.
