I started working at the Netherlands Cancer Institute as a medical oncologist in 2003. I support our breast cancer patients. Thankfully, more and more people survive this disease nowadays. I aim to be able to offer all my patients a personalized treatment that is most suitable for their situation in order to maximize their survival rates and avoid overtreatment. If full recovery is no longer a possibility, it is my challenge to still offer hope and support in whichever way I can, and to facilitate acceptance if that will bring a greater sense of peace. Our highly dedicated and skilled team of experts at the Netherlands Cancer Institute supports me in reaching those goals.
