Working in our podiatric practice is a team of experienced and qualified podiatrists who have attended the 4-year course in podiatry at the Fontys Hogeschool in Eindhoven.
At 3D-VCN, through the use of the latest 3-dimensional scanning equipment, we strive to relate the foot shape used in orthopaedic insoles to the podiatric corrective elements, while the functionality and low tolerance level of the podiatric soles remain guaranteed.
The (foot) complaints that a Podiatrist treats can vary from the child that is underperforming during Phys Ed, the (active) athlete who would like to continue to achieve optimal performance, or the 80-year-old who would like to be able to walk for an hour without any complaints.
It may also concern complaints arising from the proper or not functioning of the feet, e.g. knee, hip, and/or back problems and overload due to lots of standing and walking.
Direct access podiatry
As of August 1, 2011 you no longer need to be referred to the podiatrist. Of course, you may still make a previous appointment with the GP. But in principle this is no longer necessary. Which has advantages. It means you may ‘directly’ consult the feet specialist. So that you may ‘directly’ start working towards your recovery. The GP remains central in the coordination of your care.
The podiatrist will continue to inform the GP, unless you indicate that you do not want this. If you decide to go straight to the podiatrist he will first perform a so-called screening. This means that he he will first ascertain whether you have come to the right place at the podiatrist. If not, then he may for example, send you to your GP.
If you can be treated by the podiatrist, he, or one of his colleagues, will go to work in consultation with you. And that’s good to know. After all, the sooner you can be treated, the faster you will recover.
Hello I am Jeroen, almost 10 years podiatrist and working at all three locations of 3D-VCN in Eindhoven. I have always had a passion for the medical world and, after my training as a microbiology laboratory technician, eventually became a podiatrist. This is mainly because I get satisfaction from helping people. It is the diversity of people that makes the work interesting and varied. I find it all the more fun if I have to speak in a different language. I have made a long trip several times and since then I speak English fluently and I am currently taking a Spanish course. I also attended post-graduate training courses, including medical taping. This type of training allows me to provide people with the broadest possible vision of the best possible therapy. Through extensive experience with fitness and various forms of martial arts, I also have a lot of affinity with sports and a healthy life. Mr J.

Since 2013 I have been working as a podiatrist at 3D-VCN at the Amstelveen, Berghem and Eindhoven locations, and I also work at our own workplace with regard to the production of the podotherapeutic (sports) soles. Podiatry is the perfect profession for me since I like to work with people and through my knowledge I can help people to get rid of their complaint (s). In addition to my work as a podiatrist, I have a great deal of affinity with football players, runners and walkers. I have been working for several years in one of the largest running and walking specialty shops in the Netherlands, which means that my knowledge of running and walking shoes is very extensive. I also worked for a number of years as a sports carer at a football team in the 1st class and I am still a fanatic football player myself. In the coming years I would like to develop myself further as a (sports) podiatrist to optimally supplement the current knowledge that I have already gained in recent years. Mrs. K.B.M.

My name is Lars, I have been working at 3D-VCN since 2012 where I work at the Zoetermeer and Amstelveen locations and also at the workplace. My work combines theory and practice where I can use both my hands and my brain and I like that very much. I enjoy working with my clients to work together to find the best solution. For that reason, I would like to involve you in the investigation and try to explain everything so simply and comprehensibly so that you are also aware of why I intend to do something. By means of our 3D scanning and milling techniques I have an extra dimension of information at my disposal, literally and figuratively, when signing up a sole therapy so that I can make it more accurate and better suited to address complaints in a targeted manner. I also often know how to help people with more complaints than they initially expect because the functioning of the feet directly affects the knees, hips and also the lower back. So see you soon.

Hello I am Martin, I have been working in an orthopedic workshop since 1999. Working with materials and making from ” nothing ” to ” something ” in order to be able to help people with a satisfied face gave me a great deal of satisfaction to look further shortly afterwards and that is how I ended up in the podiatry course . After that I started working as a podiatrist in 2003, active at the locations in Oss and Zoetermeer, and also taking care of the other locations. I continue to find the work at our own workplace with regard to the production of the podotherapeutic (sports) soles very interesting and I also contribute to the production. In the meantime, a lot has changed in all those years and I am glad that we use the finest technology there is, the 3D CAD / CAM technology. Mapping the feet by means of the 3D scan technique and then working them out in their entirety to the complaints and of course the feet of the patient so that they are then milled out by the cutter with extreme precision simply cannot be better at this manner. Because I also like to be active in sports and especially football, I wanted to go a step further a few years ago, since a few years I can officially call myself a sports podiatrist. Sport continues to fascinate me enormously because it concerns an enormously broad field and you can help people with it in the most diverse ways through podiatry. Every person is unique, every complaint is therefore unique, and that is why it remains unique to see every patient walking outside with a happy smile. Mr. M.H.M.

Hello I am Olaf, workplace manager and responsible for the overall production of the podotherapeutic (sports) soles. I have been working in orthopedics for many years and I also enjoy working in podotherapy! By working with the utmost precision, using the 3D scan technology and our own milling machine, it makes our work fun, interesting and constant. As a former orthopedic-technical employee I have gained a broad knowledge that I can apply here. Not only with the processing and adjustment of the arch supports, but also with our tailor-made slippers, sandals and house shoes. I like to work in a relaxed environment and enjoy having fun but the quality of our soles is paramount! I am passionate about what I do and although I do not see the people walking on our soles, I do feel a connection because I have every sole in my hands and they all work with the same passion for this profession.
Hello I am Jaap, I have been working as a (sports) podiatrist since 2002 at the locations in Eindhoven and Zoetermeer, and subsequently in 2006 also to get rid of foot related complaints in Oss. I also carry out work at our own workplace with regard to the production of the podotherapeutic (sports) soles. My goal is to get the best possible picture of the biomechanical, substantiated background of the foot-related complaints, to think as much as possible from the cause and less from combating symptoms. I will never just look at the feet, but also at the gait pattern, the position of ankles, knees, hips and back, because these are all connected to each other. It is about the total picture. In my opinion, the intake is just as relevant as the research and the merging of knowledge and newest techniques can ultimately lead to the best total solution in many cases. I find the more complex (sports) complaints the most challenging since I have been able to examine many feet in recent years. That is why I can best express my experience in this, because from the outset that the 3D CAD-CAM technique was introduced in the podotherapeutic field, I have closely followed this development and have been part of it. In the meantime, I have gained reasonable insight into what is possible with the design and milling of our 3D fitted and designed podotherapeutic (sports) soles in our own workshop. I also find it a challenge to choose the best combination of construction and covering materials from the range of materials that results in optimization of the podotherapeutic (sports) soles for the conditions in which they will be used therapeutically. Through regular consultations, I try to ensure that all podiatrists at 3D Foot Center Netherlands use the same method as much as possible without having to limit themselves in personal growth and development.

Since 2019 I have been working as a podiatrist at the Berghem, Oss and Amstelveen locations. I also work in the workplace, where the podotherapeutic (sports) arch supports are made. Working with people and thereby addressing the complaint they come up with as well as possible gives me satisfaction. I also like to explain clearly what I observe and how I can best incorporate this into my therapy. This makes it clear to the patient which treatment plan will be set up. In the coming years I want to develop myself as well as possible as a podiatrist who also looks beyond the feet at the entire picture. There is nothing more important than being able to exercise and move pain-free. I would like to welcome you to the practice and to get started with your complaints and we will work towards the most suitable therapy for your feet and body. Mr. H.J.A.
