Dr. Robin Atallah
dr. Robin Atallah (1993-BIG number 99921962601) studied medicine at Radboud University Nijmegen. In his last year he became involved in research on osseointegration under the supervision of Dr. Frölke and went several times to Sydney, Australia to collaborate on international research with other osseointegration pioneers. This resulted in a PhD project on the safety aspects and complications of osseointegration in the treatment of amputees. In 2017 he started training as an orthopedic surgeon in the East region (Radboud, Sint Maartenskliniek, Rijnstate), of which he is currently in the final phase. He has been involved in the AOFE clinics since 2022, with the ambition to help patients in their mobility, and to further develop and put the treatment through osseointegration on the map.
