During 20162019, he continued his scientific research on permissive weight bearing, which led to his first publication in 2016 and finally to this thesis; Permissive weight bearing in trauma patients with peri- and intra-articular fractures of the lower extremities. This thesis will be the basis for another two up-coming theses. Pishtiwan will help the two PhD-students to continue with scientific research regarding permissive weight bearing. He will help PhD-students and will be two times co-promotor. In January 2022, he started his clinical career as an orthopedic specialist in trainee.
