Foot and ankle surgery

Set of 30 bones, multiple joints, muscles, numerous tendons, countless ligaments and nerves, the foot and ankle form a very complex anatomical and functional structure.

Constitutional or acquired skeletal deformities can lead to pain due to pressure problems, and premature wear. Cartilage damage, post-traumatic or degenerative, causes painful osteoarthritis and tendon and ligament pathologies are frequent and progressive. Finally, trauma represents a large part of the disorders.

In view of with this complexity and the large number of pathologies that result from it, long and in-depth surgical training is necessary to ensure that adequate medical and surgical care is provided to each patient. Dr. Marino Delmi, orthopedic surgeon and foot and ankle specialist, has been practicing in this field for 30 years and is a recognized authority worldwide.
