Dr G.M.M.J. (Gino) Kerkhoffs is professor of Orthopaedics at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Amsterdam (AMC-UvA), with a special emphasis on sports traumatology.
Grading of muscle injuries should have a big influence on time to return to sport but it’s not so easy!
Babette Pluim asks Prof Kerkhoffs how the Munich Consensus Statement of terminology and classification of muscle injuries in sport was developed. And what are the practical implications for clinicians?
Prof Kerkhoffs also shares his dream about the development of a centre of expertise for the advancement of care for injured athletes, with integrated diagnostics, customised treatment and monitoring of treatment results in Amsterdam, and the steps that have already been taken.
