Helping patients based on personal experience…
The personal story preceding the request reinforces the Royal Doctors mission.
Joris Vanvinckenroye, the founder of Royal Doctors, was born with a serious deformity affecting his right foot. The Belgian doctors’ diagnosis was drastic: amputation of his right lower leg and a lifetime in a wheelchair.
“Fortunately, my parents went to Paris to get a second opinion from a specialist. The medical prostheses technology was far more advanced in France. My leg was spared and, thanks to additional prostheses, I can now walk, cycle, and even run. This second opinion changed my life fundamentally!”
