Treating the elderly is an exciting challenge for me – as a person, as a scientist and as a surgeon.
Ageing people are like museums: it's not the façade that matters, but the treasures of the interior.
As long as you remain curious, age cannot harm you.
We need to rethink the treatment of fractures in the elderly – it requires interdisciplinary and interprofessional teamwork.
Even at the age of sixty you can still be forty – but only for half-an-hour a day.
Older patients are our future, due solely to demographics. We are all ageing, and may one day be affected by these issues ourselves.
Ageing is a highly interesting process: you think and think and think, and then suddenly you can’t remember anything.
