Personal profile

I received my basic medical education at Maastricht University after which I moved to Malmö (Sweden) to start my orthopaedic career. I have performed research in osteoarthritis and osteoporosis (special emphasis: hip fractures) as well as in blood coagulation and thrombosis.

After my specialisation, I worked as a Consultant in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery in Malmö and moved then back to my home university in Maastricht for a similar position. I came to the United Kingdom in 2004 when I took up my Consultant post in Worcestershire.

I am particularly interested in replacement of both hip and knee joints, and I have also a special interest in back problems and forefoot surgery. During my consultations, I put a special emphasis on examination and information about the condition and the possible treatment options, thereby obtaining the most appropriate solution with the best evidence-based result for each individual patient.
