AOFE - the amputee clinic and prosthetic center

From physical limitation to limitless freedom
The AOFE Clinics is a specialized amputee clinic for amputation surgery and osseointegration (click) prosthesis treatment for people with an arm or leg amputation. Or goal is to become the leading amputee and prosthetic center for international patients.

Who are the people
at AOFE Clinics?

AOFE Clinics provides responsible specialist medical care (multidisciplinary) for people with an amputation in the form of surgical stump reconstruction and osseointegration (click) prosthesis and also for people with chronic (nerve) pain complaints of the stump.

In this context, responsible care means client-centred, safe and affordable care of good quality in the broadest sense delivered through transparent management.

In this, AOFE Clinics cooperates with the Radboudumc in Nijmegen, the Aardenburg Military Rehabilitation Centre in Doorn, the Annatommie Medical Centre in Utrecht and the international patient association AOFE.

We welcome you at the amputee and prosthetic center

The clinic was founded by orthopaedic trauma surgeon Dr Jan Paul Frolke (BIG number 79021015001), rehabilitation physicians Dr Henk van de Meent (BIG number 19022706501) and Dr Fred van de Meer (BIG nummer 19043843601) en Luc Knap (BIG number 19008106930), managing director AOFE Clinics.

The aforementioned doctors introduced and further developed advanced amputation surgery and rehabilitation in the Netherlands. In 2009, they performed the first osseointegration treatment. The AOFE Clinics was established to meet the (inter)national high demand for osseointegration prosthesis treatment. The AOFE Clinics focuses entirely on this care segment with the aim of providing the best and most innovative care to people with an arm or leg amputation. In addition, the AOFE Clinics offers the opportunity to further specialise and develop amputation and prosthesis technology. Surgery and rehabilitation in the AOFE Clinics is always done in a multidisciplinary team consisting of an (orthopaedic) surgeon, rehabilitation doctor, physiotherapist and an experience expert.
