Contact   External Profile



I am head of the andrology research group of Erasmus MC. My current research activities are focusing on early testis development. Disturbances of testicular development during early pregnancy can result in testicular dysgenesis and urogenital abnormalities due to low fetal testosterone. Later in life this will result in male infertility, male hypogonadism and germ cell cancers in men.

As a clinician I am involved in urogenital reconstruction.

Field(s) of expertise

  • Andrology (male infertility, male sexual dysfunction, male hypogonadism).
  • Male reconstructive urology (refertilisation and sperm extraction procedures, urethral surgery, Peyronies disease, penile and testicular prosthesis).

Education and career

  • Medical school: Free University of Amsterdam.
  • Urology residency: Leiden University (LUMC).
  • Staff member of Urology; Erasmus MC 1993-now.
