CURRICULUM
Professor Zanasi is a specialist in orthopaedic surgery and biotechnologies, and also hand surgery and microsurgery: for the last 21 years he has been particularly interested in lower limb repair by MSCs and reconstruction by MIS as well as hip and knee implant arthroplasty. High tech Revision Implant arthroplasty forms a significantly increasing proportion of his scientific and surgical track record too.
He trained in his native Italy, attaining his degree in medicine with honours at the University of Modena in 1980 and then qualified to practice in November 1986.
His further training and education included a post-graduate qualification in Orthopaedics from the University of Modena that he started in 1986 and gained in 1991 with honours and a further post-graduate qualification in Orthopaedics and Traumatology with a focus on hand and microsurgery also from the University of Modena that he started in 1992 and gained in 1996 with honours.
Alongside his postgraduate work from that point and until around 1997 Professor Zanasi held a wide variety of both academic and practice posts in orthopaedics, in a number of institutions and healthcare facilities including Hannover, Modena, Brescia, Milan and Bologna.
His most recent and current posts are Head of the MIS hip and knee Implant arthroplasty Division of Villa Erbosa Hospital, San Donato Group, Bologna (www.villaerbosa-gsd.it.) and concurrently Head of the Orthopaedics and Biotechnologies Unit at the at the Villa Alba Hospital in Bologna (www.gvmnet.it) and the same post at La Madonnina Private Hospital in Milan (www.lamadonnina-gsd.it).
Professor Zanasi has also held Professorships in Florence and currently in Belgrade and  London where he is involved in course development.
He is Technical Consultant of the Court of Modena too, and Professor Zanasi also undertakes consultancy work with major companies including Smith & Nephew, De Puy / Johnson&Johnson and Zimmer in the development and clinical application of orthopaedic implants. He is a consultant with Biologic Therapies Co. for the research, development and clinical application of biotechnologies applied to muscle-skeletal defects.
He is a member of a wide variety of national and international professional bodies and he has also attended a multitude of workshops, courses and conferences in Europe and overseas as a participant but mainly as a presenter.
His research on minimally invasive resurfacing implant arthroplasty, tissue engineering and biotechnologies has resulted in 146 publications in journals in Italian, French and English, and 3 books.
Professor Zanasi personally performs around 950 operations per year as Chief Surgeon in the following areas: prosthetic surgeries with minimally invasive technique (including computer-assisted, particularly for hips and knees), elective arthroscopic surgeries of the main joints. He also performs 90/95 cartilage implants per year from autologous culture, and, since 2009, along with one-step technique, he uses mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for cartilage reconstruction mainly on high and medium level athletes.
