Dr Patrick Fransen, Head of Clinic in Geneva and Lausanne since 1994, decided to join the team of permanent surgeons at Monaco’s IM2S clinic last December.

His wish was motivated by “the desire to undertake a new project, with opportunities for the development of quality medicine, and proximity for Monegasques, residents of the Principality and the neighbouring Department,” he commented. “But also, to contribute to the creation of a destination of medical excellence open to the international world thanks to the attractiveness of Monaco.”

Dr Fransen brings to IM2S techniques to make spinal surgery more efficient, such as for the prevention of postoperative fibrosis in lumbar disc herniations, and less invasive, percutaneous surgery techniques in fractures. His skills include cervical surgery.

Dr Thomas d’Ollonne, an orthopaedic surgeon, also took up his post last December. Seduced by the image of the Institute in terms of quality of care and its reputation, especially among top athletes, he chose to work “with a reference to ligament pathology of the knee”.

Head of Clinic at the CHU of Nice, he specialises in arthroscopic, prosthetic, shoulder and knee surgery, but also in sports traumatology.

Dr Martin Schramm has been strengthening the Institute’s permanent practitioners team since early January. Specialising in orthopaedic and traumatological surgery, he recalls the professional passion of his father: “I remember visiting the sick on weekends with him when I was very young, of his humanity and his kindness.”

After studying medicine in Paris, he carried out his first orthopaedic course in the service of Professor Judet, which reinforces his choice of specialty. An intern of Hôpitaux Niçois in the services of Professor De Peretti and Professor Boileau, he returned to finish his training with Professor Judet who taught him the prosthetic surgery of the lower limb, the surgery of the elbow, and the management of the sequelae of fracture.

The IM2S is a medical and surgical orthopaedic clinic in Monaco, bringing together specialists in all osteoarticular pathologies. It is well known for its expertise in sports medicine.

In 2015, IM2S counted 26,023 surgical consultations with 3,686 surgical procedures. A more remarkable figure – 36,516 – represents the number of medical and traumatic emergency consultations. (Feature image: Facebook IM2S)
