Presentation Pr Henri Nielens
After completing his Bachelor's degree in physical education at UCL while practising speed skating at a professional level, Professor Henri Nielens decided to devote himself to medicine. He therefore began studying medicine and obtained his degree in 1985 at UCL. He then continued his academic path by specialising in two other fields: sports medicine and physical medicine.
Professor Nielens now works in the physical medicine department of the Europe Hospitals. This year, he is launching a new consultation in sports medicine. This consultation will be based on collaboration between fellow practitioners from different areas of specialisation: surgeons, orthopaedists, cardiologists, radiologists, internists, etc. The main objective remains to guarantee quality care for injured or ill athletes, regardless of their level.
