EDA Faculty Members

Peer-to-peer training is the core of the EDA learning journey. The EDA Academy faculty members welcome you and your team in their OR for a thorough in depth learning experience. It is the aim of the EDA Academy to accommodate to as many surgical teams as possible. Therefore, it is possible to visit multiple surgeons or to visit one hospital for multiple days.

All EDA Academy faculty members are very experienced surgeons who are dedicated to peer-to-peer training focusing on the surgical technique. This community of EDA surgeons focusses on efficiency of care with optimized quality and ergonomics. The focus is on the surgical team, the surgical technique and not on the implants used. This incentive differentiates the EDA Academy from most industry driven training programs: we only focus on surgical technique, the team workflow and the efficient OR set-up.

This initiative was started by Prof. Dr. Kristoff Corten who specialized in muscle sparing preservative and replacement hip surgery. Prof. Corten and the other team members have successfully trained and welcomed numerous teams over the years. The faculty members have given numerous presentations on international meetings such as the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the International Congress for Joint Replacement (ICJR).
