Prosthetic Knee and Hip Surgery and Traumatology

The Department is focused on the treatment of both degenerative diseases of the major joints (knee, hip and shoulder) and traumatic diseases of the elderly and sportsmen.

The operating unit guarantees the patient in question the attention necessary for an early, clinical and instrumental diagnosis; a rapid treatment of the injury, using the most innovative surgical techniques and an adequate postoperative and rehabilitative treatment, aiming at the FAST TRACK protocol ("short path") and peri-operative pain control in order to reduce both the stress for the patient and the duration of the hospital stay.

  • Failures and/or infections of previous prosthetic knee and hip implants
