Dr. Vanni Strigelli
Head of Orthopedics Valdisieve Hospital

I'm Dr. Vanni Strigelli

Specialist in orthopedic surgery with Rapid Recovery

My profession as a Surgeon specializing in Orthopaedics is oriented according to two fundamental values: the use of modern and cutting-edge approaches, procedures and instruments and maximum patient protection in terms of biological saving and recovery.

In fact, in every intervention I use the Rapid Recovery approach which guarantees:

  • Less pain
  • Less bleeding
  • Smallest incision possible
  • Using glue instead of stitches
  • Shorter hospitalization
  • Greater autonomy
And it allows the patient to immediately return to walking without pain, climb stairs and easily recover full joint mobility.

The course of study

The course of study

After graduating in Medicine and Surgery, I specialized in Orthopedics and Traumatology at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Rome (Policlinico A. Gemelli), always obtaining the best of votes.

During the five years of specialization I studied in particular hip, knee and foot surgery, also thanks to international experiences, in America (NY) and Finland (ZBFR Europe).

I have written scientific articles in international journals and books; I am the author of a chapter on knee replacement in “The Adult Knee”.

Since January 2020 I have been responsible for Orthopedics at the Valdisieve Hospital, where I deal in depth with:
  • Total prosthesis and unicompartmental knee prosthesis
  • Total hip replacement
  • Fast-track / rapid recovery path in prosthetic surgery
  • Percutaneous or minimally invasive surgery of the hallux valgus and foot

Together towards recovery

Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Innovation

I visit and work in various clinics between Florence, Pontassieve and Bologna, carrying out my surgical activity both privately and in agreement with the national health system.

I manage the Orthopedics department of Valdisieve Hospital, where I collaborate with an exceptional team of doctors specialized in orthopedic surgery: this allows me to keep constantly updated on the most modern and advanced techniques in the surgical and anesthetic fields.

Thanks also to the support of professionals in the field of post-operative recovery, I guarantee a rapid and complete treatment path.
