Mr. Matay Arsan grew up in the Netherlands and graduated from medical school at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam and completed his Trauma & Orthopaedic surgical training in Germany. He continued his sub-specialty training through an intensive 3-year hand surgery training at the Hand Zentrum Lingen, under the supervision of Dr. M. Nicoloff, a leading total-wrist arthroplasty surgeon in Germany. He was then appointed Lead Hand Surgeon of the Trauma & Orthopaedics Department of St. Bonifatius Hospital. He gained experience working in the academic teaching hospitals of North Rhine-Westphalia, affiliated to the University of Münster, where his post incorporated trauma and management of both non-operative & operative management of high/low-velocity injuries as well as sports injuries.

Mr. Matay Arsan consistently uses up to date techniques such as the WALANT (Wide Awake Local Anaesthetics No Tourniquet) as well as evidence-based treatments and minimally invasive (including keyhole) surgery, which enables him to achieve good surgical outcomes.
