Gert Bessems, MD

Since 2002 I work as a consultant pediatric orthopedic surgeon in the Erasmus MC, Sophia Children’s hospital in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. I have a special interest in Legg-Calvé-Perthes’ disease, Down syndrome, Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita, Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip and limb deformities. The limb deformities are treated in a multidisciplinary team. Especially the congenital pseudoarthrosis of the tibia, often in patients with neurofibromatosis, is a challenging condition.
