A. (Abigael) Cohen
After finishing my medical study at the Erasmus MC in 2016, I started my career as a resident not in training at the department of Surgery in different hospitals. After gaining some clinical experience, I focused on science. In 2018, I started my PhD project at the department of Orhtopaedic Surgery. My PhD focuses on the scaphoid bone. I am studying patients with different problems regarding their scaphoid bone; from patients with a clinically suspected scaphoid fracture to patients with scaphoid nonunion. My biggest project is a large randomized controlled trail to study if patients with a clinically suspected scaphoid fracture can be treated with supportive bandage instead of cast. We are studying both clinical outcomes, as well as patient-reported outcomes and cost-effectiveness.
