Any experience with MARPE?

Hey guys, 31 year old male from the Netherlands here. It's really hard to find dentists or orthodontists here who are into the newer methods discussed on this forum. I found a department of orthodontics at a university who apparently use MARPE as the standard treatment for expansion in adults. Going to see them in 2 weeks, as I convinced myself my face really needs some maxillary expansion. What are the experiences here with MARPE? Or has anyone been to this place?

The Radboudumc, I actually went there a couple of days ago and they were receptive to my wishes and complaints. They'll have a treatment plan for me in january, which will probably include some form of lower jaw surgery in addition to MARPE, to accommodate for the extra space, as my lower jaw is too narrow on itself already.

Hi guys, I live in NL but I'm not dutch (sadly).

@spacedragon and @jelly : Do you have contact info (e.g., website) for The Radboud UMC orthodontists that uses MARPE ? 

Or other orthodontists in the NL that use MARPE ? 

Thanks.
