Born in the Netherlands, I initially completed my degrees as a cancer researcher. I then moved to Australia, where I trained as a gastroenterologist. I moved my wife and two children to New Zealand to perform advanced interventional endoscopy. This work is very satisfying to me as I can have a big impact on the heath outcomes of my patients.

I am passionate about education outside my work as well. For the last 3 years I have run the "spaceteddy" project at Forrest Hill primary school. By sending a teddy bear into near space, the children learn about science, environment as well as computer programming.

Dr Marius has been my mums doctor for some time now as she deals with duadenom cancer. The procedures involving stenting they have used on her have proved to be life prolonging , and I feel that if she had had surgery she would not have been with us today. She is living a reasonably normal life with 4 stents allowing this to happen . We are extremely happy with the results. Thanks Marius

I have been seeing Dr Marius for the past year and he has been extremely helpful and friendly throughout. He is very reliable and quick to pick up and treat any symptoms. He is also always on call when needed.

Marius was the first person to take my condition seriously, and do everything in his power to help me. Even when my issues went outside of his scope of work. He is empathetic and diligent, and has been an heavy weight in my corner and my ace up my sleeve. I’m so grateful for him, and would highly recommend.
