Dr. Thomas Vermeer

Dr. Thomas Vermeer trained as a gastrointestinal surgeon at Maastricht University Medical Center and Zuyderland Hospital in Sittard/Heerlen.

The foundation of his career was laid at the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven where he gained much scientific experience and where he also completed his doctoral studies.

At Zuyderland, he completed his training as a gastrointestinal surgeon with specific focus on gastric surgery.

"Overweight and obesity is one of the greatest challenges of our society today. The impact on health care and quality of life is enormous. Surgical treatment of obesity contributes enormously to the prevention of short- and long-term health problems and has a positive effect on quality of life. By specializing in the treatment of one disease, we are able to provide the best care to our patients. My passion for operating and treating patients through keyhole surgery aligns perfectly with this."

- Dr. Thomas Vermeer

After his training, he worked as a surgeon at Zuyderland Hospital for another year and at Maxima Medisch Centrum Veldhoven/Eindhoven for 1.5 years. Here he further expanded his experience in gastric reduction surgery. He joined the team at Weight Works in October 2023.
