Antonio Moroni



Professor Antonio Moroni is a professor of diseases of the musculoskeletal system at the Vita-Salute University of San Raffaele, Head of the Surgical Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology - Hip Surgery at the Clinical Institute of San Siro and a private clinic in Casa di Cura La Madonnina.

His studies began with a degree in medicine and surgery at the University of Bologna, where he was honored to publish a thesis. Later, he specialized in orthopedics and traumatology at the Orthopedic Clinic of the University of Bologna at the Rizzoli Orthopedic Institutes.

Then he continues his studies at prestigious university centers in the USA to deepen his experience in hip surgery, such as Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, John Hopkins University in Baltimore and Mayo Clinic in Rochester. He also joins the collaboration with the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham, where he studies the technique of hip lining arthroplasty under the guidance of Dr. Derek McMinn.  

From 1986 to 2011, he assisted at Istituti Ortopedici Rizzoli in Bologna; then, starting in 2012, he worked at Ospedali Toniolo and Villa Laura in Bologna and Villa Margherita in Rome. Since 2013, he has been the Head of the Surgical Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology - Hip Surgery at l'Istituto Clinico San Siro.

Professor Antonio Moroni has personally performed more than 3,500 operations and can be proud of one of the most difficult hip replacement cases in the world – a method that allows you to preserve the femoral head, providing patients with rapid functional recovery with the possibility of returning to full functionality of the limbs. He performed a large number of total hip replacements with ceramic tribology, while about 1000 interventions were performed. In addition, the history of diseases with knee replacement has more than 800 operations.
