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 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 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-specialty training through an intensive 3-year hand surgery training at the Hand Zentrum Lingen, a renowned hand center 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 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 post-operative treatment.
It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
