Treatment of Shoulder and Elbow Pathology (Dutch)
Treating shoulder and elbow pathology requires a multidisciplinary approach. Besides from orthopedic surgery, radiology is a key aspect in diagnostics and treatment of shoulder and elbow pathology. The ASECE works with radiologist specialized in the pathology of the shoulder and elbow. Furthermore, physiotherapist affiliated to the ASECE primariliy focus their practise on shoulder and elbow pathology. By combining these professions and facilitating a multidisciplinary approach, we are aiming to achieve the best possible care for our patients.
Roel has been active as physician assistant at both the east and west location of OLVG since 2016. His interest in the shoulder and elbow started during his work as a physiotherapist. Due to the variety and complexity of the pathology, he experiences this field as challenging, which drives his interest. As physician assistant, Roel is active at the outpatient clinic and assists during surgery. In addition, he specializes in autologous blood injections to treat patients suffering from a persistent tennis or golfer’s elbow.
