Stijn RooseStijn Roose has the role of Hip Coachwithin the Heuppraktijk team. He is the link between the orthopedic hip specialist and the external physiotherapist. His mission? To make the very best out of the revalidation. To achieve this, he performs a specific analysis, in which he looks for the patient's points to work on. Together with the patient, he will establish a program of targeted and personalized exercises to address his hip problem . At this point, he has performed over 2,000 hip analyses during the 2019-2022 time frame.

Stijn has a master's degree in rehabilitation science and physical therapy, with a specialization in sports physical therapy. During his final year, he completed his internship in Australia. There he found that communication, education and stimulation to activity are the foundation of the patient journey. This is done through a personalized rather than a generalized approach.

To achieve this, Stijn designed and developed the HipCloud application with Professor Corten. HipCloud is an application that the patient and his physiotherapist can use to obtain the best possible treatment and follow-up.

In order to ensure optimal support for hip patients, he regularly attends and teaches advanced courses. He is also active in scientific research. In 2022, he participated in a study on "Risk factors for iliopsoas tendinopathy after direct anterior total hip arthroplasty" with, among others, Professor Corten.

For patients who need to have surgery, we can strengthen the muscles with pre-surgery exercises , in order to anticipate the situation after the operation. During rehabilitation, Stijn assists the patient and his physiotherapist. When the patient tries to return to sport, the Hip Coach ensures that he can return to sport safely. Close interaction and communication with the physiotherapist is then very important.



A multi-disciplinary approach for a personalized treatment process

Many hip problems require a multidisciplinary approach. In the Hip Analysis Center (HAC), your hip problem is discussed and analyzed. In this way, our team establishes a personalized treatment plan in consultation with you.



The European Hip Clinic has a unique physiotherapy approach that is tailored to your needs

Together with the patient, the Hip Coach examines whether a personalised exercise programme can solve your hip problem without surgery. The Hip Coach supports you and your treating physiotherapist throughout your personalised rehabilitation process. In this way, we achieve the maximum result for your hip problem.



Digital accompaniment, without or with surgery, throughout the entire treatment process

With the HipCloud your recovery process starts already from the first consultation. The application offers personalized guidance based on the working points of the patient. In case of surgery, the online follow-up can even reduce your stay in the hospital to 1 day or 1 night.



We start your revalidation already before the possible operation

Together with our Hip Coach we set out a program that starts even before your operation. This program is tailor-made for you, in line with your goals.

The secretariat is not available from 1/8 to 7/8. We will answer all emails and calls from 8/8 onwards.
