Dr. Federico Usuelli, orthopedic surgeon at the ”I.R.C.C.S. Galeazzi Orthopaedic Institute” of Milan, focused his scientific, diagnostics and surgical activities on the foot and ankle pathologies.

His main focuses are on the area of:

  • Ankle Arthritis and Prosthesis
  • Bunion
  • Foot Deformities
  • Child’s Foot
  • Osteochondral or cartilage lesion
  • Sports Medicine

With over 100 interventions of “mobile-bearing Hintegra” ankle prosthesis and over 150 “resurfacing TM-Ankle” implants, one of the most innovative system in the surgical landscape, is considered the vanguard in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the ankle.

His studies and the great experience in the operating room make it – to date – the name of reference for the graft of prosthesis of the ankle, which, unlike the arthrodesis, preserves the movement allowing the patient to gradually return not only to walk but also to sporting activities.

Author of numerous scientific publications, his studies on tissue repairs related to the osteochondral ankle sprain have had great prominence, and they have led him to experiment and make reproducible the technique “AT-AMIC” arthroscopic for the biological reconstruction of cartilage.

Thanks to his ongoing research and continuous commitment to reduce the invasiveness of the treatment, which resulted in over 400 corrective actions of hallux valgus and forefoot deformities, he is one of the promoters of mixed surgical approaches that combine the advantages of percutaneous surgery to those of minimally invasive surgery in general.
