Knee and sport medicine

The knee is the largest joint in the human body. Disease or injury to this joint can severely restrict mobility. Dr Sandro Fucentese and his team will find the best form of treatment for you, using the very latest surgical techniques, including minimally invasive surgery, computer-assisted navigation, and arthroscopy.
