Marc van Sambeek
Marc van Sambeek is a part-time professor of Application of Engineering in Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy at the Cardiovascular Biomechanics research group of the department of Biomedical Engineering. His main affiliation is with the Catharina Hospital Eindhoven where he works as a vascular surgeon. He has an interest in minimally invasive vascular surgery (endovascular treatments) and as a surgeon specializes in aortic aneurysm, carotid artery stenosis and thoracic outlet syndrome. At TU/e, his research is focused on improvement of clinical decision making and intervention. This is based on the application of mathematical models that are able to predict the course of a vascular disease and/or the outcome of proposed intervention scenarios. These models need to be personalized and will use patient specific input data acquired by means of imaging (preferably non-invasive), as well as functional measurements.
Marc van Sambeek studied Medicine at Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands) where he obtained his medical degree in 1986. After fulfilling his military service, he was trained as a surgeon at the 'Sint FranciscusGasthuis' and Erasmus Medical Center, both in Rotterdam (The Netherlands). In 1995, he was registered as a surgeon and in 1997 as a vascular surgeon. In 1998, he obtained his PhD at Erasmus University Rotterdam with his thesis 'Intravascular ultrasound and peripheral endovascular interventions'. From 1996 until 2007, Marc van Sambeek was a staff surgeon at the Erasmus Medical Center, with a special focus on minimally invasive vascular surgery. Since 2008, he is a vascular surgeon at Catharina Hospital (Eindhoven, The Netherlands). In 2017, Marc van Sambeek was appointed part-time professor of Application of Engineering in Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy in the department of Biomedical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
