I have been working as a surgeon at the Netherlands Cancer Institute since 2012. My specialty is the surgical treatment of colon cancer and liver metastases. I received funding from the Queen Wilhelmina Fund (Koningin Wilhelmina Fonds) to work at some of the best liver surgery hospitals in the world. Thanks to my experiences in Liverpool, New York, Paris, and Los Angeles, I have an understanding of all possible treatment options for liver tumors. Most of these treatments are available to our patients at the Netherlands Cancer Institute.
Next to my clinical tasks, I am involved in the development of a surgical navigation system (a TomTom or GPS) for surgeons to use during surgery. I am also conducting research into treatments for colon cancer that metastasized to the liver.
The high level of expertise at our hospital, the multidisciplinary care, and the fundamental and applied cancer research that is done here make our hospital truly unique. My patients can be certain that they receive a carefully selected and personalized treatment, as well as personal attention and time.
