D.E. (Duncan) Meuffels MD PhD


I am a Sport Orthopedic and Complex Knee Instability Surgeon, who is actively involved in research of the knee. In 2011 I defended my thesis “Novel Insights in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury”. The research group is focused on clinical research investigating traumatic knee injuries such as meniscal, anterior cruciate ligament injury and knee luxations and its sequelae. A number of multi centre trials and a European network for multi ligamentous knee injuries are headed from the Erasmus MC. The group consists of a senior research coordinator Dr Reijman, a research assistent Mrs van Es and six PhD students supported by a number of Master students.
