My expertise is "hormone specialist" for birth control and hormone replacement therapy after menopause. I worked on the development of hormones for women after (surgical) menopause. As part of the project "De ouder wordende vrouw" (the aging woman) I have supported women at the VUmc through (non-)hormonal treatments since 1990. We later expanded this project to the consultation hour for hereditary cancer in gynecology. As part of the collaboration CGOA, I started holding my consultations at the Netherlands Cancer Institute and Amsterdam Medical Center (AMC). I love that I am able to improve the quality of life of women at the Netherlands Cancer Institute who experience menopause as a result of their chemotherapy treatment.
