Dr Vincenzo Langerame

expert in minimally invasive surgical techniques
Foot and ankle joint
1972 / 1978 : degree in medicine and surgery at the “La Sapienza” University in Rome;
1979 / 1981: national examination for the exercise of the medical surgical profession and specialization in Orthopedics and traumatology at the same university.
1982 / 1991: training of ten years in sports traumatology, especially in arthroscopic knee surgery, and shortly after in shoulder and ankle. Prosthetic surgery began to establish in treatments to correct arthritic degenerative problems.
The frequency of theoretical and practical courses increased my surgical knowledge.
1992 / 2005: I left the public hospital to work privately and I organized my own surgical group that dealt with the all orthopedic pathologie. I worked in several clinics in northern and southern Italy, with focus on ligamentous and meniscal pathologies of of sports trauma: soccer players, basketball players, etc.
I attended practical courses like cadaver labs, intensifying friendship and attendance at orthopedic surgical centers – especially in Spain and the USA.
2005 / 2010: professional break out-of-border in various foreign hospitals like in United Kingdom, Libya, and United Arab Emirates.
2011 / 2018: finally I dedicate myself exclusively to foot surgery, or rather to painful foot surgery, tackling all the problems of the forefoot, with mini-invasive techniques, which continue to have such success with patients, approaching with greater trust surgical solutions. I continue to participate with enthusiasm in congresses, meetings and cadaver labs – like the last one in Boston, in July. Currently I have a lot of work, and the results give me so much strength in pursuing these new motivations. The idea of being able to work also in Portugal has really won me over!
I am AOFAS (american orthopaedic foot and ankle society), EFAS (european foot and ankle society), SICP (foot surgery society) member.
Hobbies: sea, travel!
