Humanitas Clinical Institute in Rozzano:
Since 01-01-2002, Head of Anaesthesia of the Direct Prosthetic Surgery Unit under the late Prof. Lorenzo Spotorno until 2008, and to date under Prof. Guido Grappiolo.
Said unit went from 600 procedures during its first year to 1,300 at the end of 2008. This unit has driven the organisation of a blood circuit that has reduced homologous blood requests by 75%, generating a 27% drop in overall patient management costs. Thus, a surgical protocol has been established for bloodless procedures with the use of a surgical and anaesthesia roadmap allowing discharge within two days.
This organisation has carried out the first large-scale experimentations in Italy regarding:
The use of new molecules to prevent the risk of thromboembolism.
Two new techniques for peri-operatory sedation.
A new approach to post-operatory pain therapy.
A new technique of intra-operatory hemostasis.
A new technique for post-operatory recovery in procedures using autologous blood.
Cost-effective medicine in orthopaedia.
