Merger with SMDC - Sporthorse Medical Diagnostic Centre - in the Netherlands02—10—2019 (Altano Gruppe)
The Altano Gruppe continues to grow and will be represented internationally from October 2019. With the Sporthorse Medical Diagnostic Centre (SMDC) we have an excellent partner to lay the foundation for the international expansion of the group in the Netherlands.
With Dr. Erik Bergman, Dr. Frans van Toor and their team we could win top veterinarians for the group. With over 30 years of experience in the veterinary care of sport horses, they founded the SMDC in 2015. With 5 veterinarians and 7 other employees, the centre works daily to improve multidisciplinary orthopaedic care. Correct diagnosis, a tailor-made treatment plan and optimal aftercare are the top priorities.
Specialized in sports medicine, the SMDC offers a wide range of services for the prevention and rehabilitation of diseases of the equine musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, nerves). In addition to X-rays, ultrasonography, UTC and endoscopy, scintigraphy and MRI are also available in the field of diagnostics.
Dr. Erik Bergman: "The orthopaedic, diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities in combination with teamwork and experience lead to the best possible care for our patients. The Altano Gruppe supports us in this conviction and enables a highly qualified, professional exchange for the optimization of medical care".
