Marc is a Dutch trained Urologist who completed his fellowship with the European Board of Urology in 2013, before being enticed ‘down under’ by his Australian wife.

Now a fellow of the Royal Australiasian College of Surgeons, Marc is happily settled in Albury Wodonga with local family ties to the region.
