Mr Hans Marynissen graduated in Orthopaedic Surgery from the University of Antwerp, Belgium in 1998. Within this field, he showed a specialist interest towards shoulder and knee pathology having completed fellowships in both South Africa and the USA. More specifically, he focusses on joint preserving and minimally invasive surgery.
In 1999, he became a Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon in East Lancashire Teaching Hospitals and has an NHS practice within ELHT (Burnley, Blackburn and Rossendale hospital sites). Furthermore, he has private practice privileges at Gisburne Park Hospital, The Beardwood Hospital and the Fullwood Hall Hospital.
Mr Marynissen helped to establish the SKI (Soft tissue Knee Injury) group and was one of the first surgeons to introduce personalised knee replacement surgery and high tibial osteotomy (knee realignment) surgery in the North of England. He has written about his work in several peer-reviewed journals.
In his spare time Mr Marynissen is a keen cyclist and (apprentice) sailor, he likes long-distance hikes, tennis, badminton and plays the guitar.
