About me

Currently I am doing the Master of Medicine at the Radboud University. At the same time I already started my PhD at the department.

This is under the supervision of Dr. Wim Rijnen, Dr. Jetze Visser and Professor Wim Schreurs. 

Research Impression

Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a widely applied procedure for osteoarthritis of the hip. After THA, one can expect an increase in physical activity due to the reduction of pain and increased range of motion of the hip joint, especially in young patients who in general have more active lifestyles. However, these young patients and their doctors don’t know which increase in physical activity can be expected.
