The ribbon rain around King's Day will hit our Prof. Dr. Nolst Trenité. Last Monday he was appointed Knight in the Order of the Netherlands Lion by Mayor Femke Halsema.
Prof. dr. Dr. Nolst Trenité has been involved in nasal surgery for over 50 years. He is a pioneer worldwide, trained many doctors and published an international textbook and numerous scientific articles. In the words of Femke Halsema: 'You developed new surgical techniques that significantly reduced not only functional complaints, but also the stigma that leprosy patients have to deal with. You belong to the outside category within your field, but more importantly you are a lifeline for many patients. You have been awarded many times. But you didn't have this award yet'.
We are of course very proud of Prof. Dr. Nolst Trenité and congratulate him!
