ABOUT ME

Giorgio Garau

As soon as I finished my university training, I won the competition as Orthopaedic Medical Director II level at ASL VCO. After two years, I landed at the Quadrante Orthopaedical Centre in Omegna (VB), centre of excellence for prosthetic and arthroscopic surgery, and, in general, for all the elective pathology in the orthopaedic field. In this way, I had the opportunity to gain a great clinical and, above all, surgical experience despite my very young age.
The areas of greatest interest and surgical development concern hip and knee prosthetics, arthroscopic and sports surgery - knee and ankle ligament, the treatment of tendon pathologies (in particular of the patella and Achilles) and, last but not least, the correction of foot deformities with the most recent minimally invasive techniques, thanks also to a two-year super-specialist course with the 2nd level University Master in Foot Surgery at the Biomedical Campus of Rome in 2010-2012. In 2016, when I became Team Manager, I expanded both the Outpatient and Surgery network, working as a freelancer not only at the COQ of Omegna, but also in Sardinia at the "Casa di Cura Polispecialistica Sant'Elena" in Cagliari and other private facilities.
Over the years, I have always tried to keep alive one of my greatest orthopaedic passions: sports traumatology.
I always try to stay close to the athletes, if possible, also on the field, working with athletic trainers and physiotherapists to prevent injuries and to the quickest and best recovery of the same when suffered. For this reason, even today, I still hold the role of reference orthopaedic consultant for various sports clubs, for professional athletes and not of numerous sports.
