Overlijdensbericht en herinneringsplaats van

Dr. Jan Jouke van Wingerden

      Intens verdrietig en verslagen, maar met veel kostbare herinneringen en dankbaarheid, geven wij u kennis van het plotselinge overlijden van de geliefde vader van Louise en Annique, broer van Marieke, verloofde van Marijke, vriend, arts en liefhebber van het leven, Jan Jouke van Wingerden.

      Jan J. van Wingerden, MB ChB, MMed, PhD, FACS, FCS(SA), FRCS(Eng), was a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. He was passionate about improving the quality of life of children with congenital and acquired deformities; adults affected by cancer or trauma and those with afflictions of the hand and aesthetic concerns. His focus on improving the quality of patients’ lives was regardless of economic and international boundaries.

      Dr. van Wingerden graduated from the University of Pretoria and received his training in General Surgery and Plastic Surgery at the University Hospitals attached to the Schools of Medicine of Pretoria and the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg). He was admitted as a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and the College of Surgeons of South Africa. He held a PhD from the University of Amsterdam. He was past President of the South African Society for Surgery of the Hand and served for many years on the executive committee of the Association of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons of Southern Africa as well as several Research Foundations. Dr. van Wingerden was well published in the clinical literature (in several languages) and a regular reviewer for leading international journals covering reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.

      In lieu of flowers the family welcomes any donations to the Atterbury Trust, which assists in the training of underprivileged medical students and nurses in South Africa.

      This falls in line with Jan's passion for learning.
