I work together with the orthopedic surgeon at the Shoulder and Elbow combination consultation hours. Here I see patients with all kinds of shoulder and elbow related complaints. During the interview I sketch a picture of what may be going on. I then use the physical examination and additional diagnostics (for example X-ray or MRI) to ultimately draw a conclusion and make a proposal for the policy to be followed. This may, for example, lead to advice to follow physiotherapy or to undergo orthopedic treatment in consultation with the orthopedist.

I love puzzling and finding out what is really going on. I also get satisfaction from helping people by thinking about what they need to recover. Making a plan to achieve realistic goals and guiding people along the way makes this work very valuable.
