The surgeons

team of surgeons

Under the aegis of Professor Jean-Noël Argenson, a team of surgeons is committed to provide you with the best management and cutting-edge techniques. For lower limb surgery, the team includes three senior surgeons covering prosthetic hip and knee surgery, conservative surgery, arthroscopic meniscal and ligament repair surgery of the knee and hip. Two exclusive shoulder surgeons contribute solid practice of prosthetic and arthroscopic shoulder surgery to the department.
