Fields of intervention

Knee surgery

The knee is a complex joint that must be both stable and mobile. Ligament or meniscus injuries, osteoarthritis, and patella instability are typical pathologies that may require surgery to restore the knee to optimal functionality. Healing of these conditions requires complete patient compliance with the treatment protocol.


Sports Traumatology

The management of sports-related injuries is a restorative discipline that aims to ensure the best possible recovery for athletes after muscle or joint injuries. Thanks to adapted surgical techniques and re-education advice, the surgeon does everything possible to allow athletes to resume their sport in the best conditions.
