Wouter focuses his practice on Ear problems and Paediatric ENT problems. Ear problems include, but are not limited to; hearing loss, ear canal narrowing (surfer's ear), tympanic membrane perforation, chronic ear infection, ossicular reconstruction, otosclerosis.  Paediatric ENT problems include adenoid & tonsil related problems such as recurrent infections and obstructive sleep-disordered breathing, hearing loss, ear infections, glue ear and nasal obstruction.

After completing Medical School in the Netherlands, Wouter worked at the University of Florida in the Ear Research Laboratories, which led to a PhD degree. He then returned to Europe for his clinical ENT training in Essen, Germany. During this time, he gained experience in the treatment of complex ear diseases. Subsequently, Wouter practiced for five years in the Netherlands before moving to New Zealand in 2003. In New Zealand he worked in the Manukau Super Clinic and part-time in the Auckland Otology (Ear) Group before moving to Tauranga in 2008. His private consulting room is at 14 Willow Street in Tauranga.

“Over the last 25 years it has been my privilege to improve the quality of life of many children and adults who were affected by ENT problems. Helping people has been the most rewarding part of my work. During consultations there will be ample time to discuss symptoms, findings, treatment options and also to answer any questions. In this regard, I strongly support shared decision-making and personalised care to ensure the best possible outcome.”
