Dr. De Smet

Profile Prof Koen De Smet400x300
Dr Koen De Smet is the founder and head of the ANCA clinic. A distinguished career since the 1980s has seen him build an international practice while maintaining a personalised approach. He founded ANCA in 1997 and focussed his orthopedic practice on hip conditions with the aim of offering world class treatments. He takes pride in his track record of helping patients walk again who have been deemed 'untreatable' and have given up hope. To give someone their 'life back' and enable them to return to activities and hobbies gives Dr De Smet immense satisfaction.
