Thomas de Wijkerslooth
I have been working as a gastroenterologist specialized in oncology at the Netherlands Cancer Institute since 2018. My specialty is targeted treatment through endoscopic procedures. I perform internal gall duct endoscopic procedures (ERCP) to remove obstructions in the gall ducts. Cancer can close off parts of the gastrointestinal tract. We use a small metal tube (stent) to open the passageway back up. I also specialize in endoscopic ultrasound procedures (EUS) and endoscopic removal of growths in the colon (eFTR).
The Netherlands Cancer Institute is a nice place to work because of its goal to deliver innovative and high-quality care. Communication between specialists and other medical staff is easy and intensive, which further helps us give our patients the best care possible.
