Karin Hekman has been a specialist on shoulder rehabilitation since 2006. Her interest in the shoulder area developed in the VU Medical Center when she and the orthopaedic surgeons started the shoulder clinic.

Her special interest lies in the diagnostics and rehabilitation of shoulder instability. After having worked at the traumatology and orthopaedics department at the VU Medical Center for 20 years, she started her own practice at IBC Amstelland in Amstelveen in March 2017.
Dr. Hekman has been the chairperson of the Shoulder Network (Schoudernetwerk) Amsterdam area since 2008, and of the Dutch Shoulder Network since 2014. She also has several publications to her name.
