While being in training to become a surgeon, he received a PhD in medicine resulting from a collaboration project between the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center and the RuG on an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) related topic: ‘Circadian Rhythmicity of ICU Patients’. He sub-specialized as a trauma-surgeon and became a Fellow of the European Board of Surgery in 2010 after passing his EBSQ board exam in Berlin, hence becoming European Board Certified.
Dr. Gazendam published in several peer-reviewed journals, presented at international conferences and picked up additional skills during observerships at San Fransisco General, UC Health (Cincinnati), Jackson Memorial (Miami) and with deployed US army surgeons in Balad.
In 2013 he made a definite career switch, moving from his clinical work as a surgeon in a private practice to founding and leading the Detact Group. He is proud to lead a team where all members bring their own academic backgrounds and experiences to the table, resulting in products that are more than just the sum of their parts.
