    About

    Mr Arsan is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in all aspects of the treatment of hand & wrist disorders as well as treatment of the injured elbow.

    Matay 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-speciality training through an intensive 3-year hand surgery training at the Hand Zentrum Lingen, a renowned hand centre in Lower Saxony, 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. Matay 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.

    Matay has been a substantive Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon since 2012. He developed a modern and successful upper limb service for occupational accidents at the St. Bonifatius Hospital as well as St. Christophorus Clinic.

    Matay is currently the Lead Hand Surgeon at the Homerton University Hospital. His interests incorporate the complete field of hand & wrist surgery as well as management of elbow disorders.

    Matay 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. His patients are treated as day cases and can return home after surgery. Matay believes in teaching his patients to understand their injury or condition and involves them in not only decision making but also in the post-operative treatment.
