Department of Traumatology and ER @ Ospedale Galeazzi - Sant'Ambrogio

The First Aid service of the IRCCS Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi, directed by Dr. Riccardo Accetta, provides orthopedic services, with examination and orthopedic specialist services thanks to the support of a radiological service 24 hours a day, all year round. 

We treat both minor pathologies (compound fractures, joint sprains...) and major pathologies that require surgical therapy and hospitalizations.

The Department of Traumatology, also directed by Dr. Accetta, performs over 1,500 admissions per year of which 31% are transfers from another hospital due to expertise and high specialization in highly complex fractures in young and elderly patients.

IRCCS Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi also stands out for the high volume of femur fracture surgeries treated within 48 hours, with a 98% efficacy rate. In this area, the structure in the following years has obtained the primacy according to the National Program Evaluation Outcomes of AGENAS (National Agency for National Health Services).
