I graduated in Medicine at the Free University of Brussels. My thesis for obtaining the medical qualification included a retrospective study about surgical access in wrist fractures.
I started my specialized medical training at St. Augustinus Hospital in Antwerp. During this time I worked in all areas of orthopedics/accident surgery as well as hand surgery, as the hospital had a hand center.
In order to deepen my professional knowledge in orthopedic rehabilitation medicine I worked at the Lower Rhine Clinic (Niederrheinklinik) in Korschenbroich. I completed my accident surgical year at the trauma surgery clinic of the University Hospital of Aachen and continued my orthopedic training at the orthopedic clinic of St. Mary´s Hospital in Oberhausen. In 2006 I obtained my specialist medical qualification.
Since my interest in hand surgery remained during my studies and the entire time of my specialized training, I focused on the field of hand surgery by attending congresses (FESSH / DAH ) and courses (Vienna Hand Courses, Bonn´s Accident Days, microsurgical course in Wuerzburg) on a regular basis. Right after having obtained the specialist medical qualification I started my specialized training for the additional qualification in hand surgery at Krefeld Hospital, Clinic for Orthopedics, Trauma and Hand Surgery. I continued my employment as an acting senior practitioner at Greifswald University Hospital.
During my orthopedic training my interest was also drawn to foot surgery. Consequently, I participated in all foot surgical courses of the German Association for Foot and Ankle (Deutsche Assoziation für Fuß und Sprunggelenk – DAF) and obtained the DAF-Certificate in January 2009.
In order to expand my surgical spectrum with regard to plastic-reconstructive procedures for soft tissue injuries and to complete my hand surgical qualification I started my employment as a senior physician in the department of aesthetic and reconstructive surgery and hand surgery at St. Joseph Hospital in Bremerhaven. Later I headed the department as acting director.
From May 2012 I worked as a specialist in orthopedics for the medical care center in Hanau.
In July 2014 I opened my own practice for orthopedics in Frankfurt Westend, turning a dream into reality. My extensive technical training allows me to support your health and well-being responsibly at the highest level.
