Dr. Edo Aarts

Dr. Edo Aarts was captivated early in his training as a surgeon by all that is involved in gastric reduction surgery.

Together with Dr. Frits Berends and Dr. Ignace Janssen, he set up a research department for gastric surgery at Rijnstate in Arnhem in 2007, which he supervised until 2018. Not surprisingly, he also received his doctorate on that topic in 2014.

Dr. Aarts has gained extensive experience in gastric reduction surgery at The Rijnstate Hospital.

He has conducted much scientific research with numerous publications and is a widely seen speaker at international conferences. So in 2020, he joined the editorial board of the leading scientific journal "Obesity Surgery.

"I believe that as a doctor you can only provide really good care if you specialize in one disease. People who do everything they can to get rid of their obesity have been close to my heart for many years because I know how hard they have it. Those people deserve my full attention and help!"
