In Children´s Orthopedics our goal is improve quality of life for patients with congenital or acquired musculoskeletal limitations through exercises, bracing or surgery. The primary focus for my research is a critical approach to current treatment regimes and validate and establish new treatments.

My journey into the Children´s Orthopedics began in 2009 when I started working at Aarhus University Hospital immediately after finishing my residency in orthopedics. In 2014 I moved to London with my family to work as a clinical fellow at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH) and Royal London Hospital. Since I have been the Head of Children´s Orthopedics in Aarhus and lately appointed professor and Head of Children´s Orthopedics in Aalborg.

Current research areas are limb deformity correction, hip preservation in adolescents with severe hip disease and validation of a new screening strategy for hip dysplasia in newborns.
