Thirty years of shoulder!

October 1st, 1986 : I participated in the opening of the first European Shoulder Unit in the Jomayère Clinic in Saint-Étienne (France )... October 1st, 2016 : I am in charge of the Shoulder Center in the Genolier Clinic(Switzerland), after developing the shoulder surgery during 10 years at the Jouvenet Hand Institute in Paris (France ).

Today, celebrating 30 years as an orthopaedic surgeon exclusively dedicated to shoulder pathology and rehabilitation, I am proud to have allowed about 6 500 patients to recover, through a successful operation, a functional and sportive shoulder, and helped more than 26 000 patients only through a specific rehabilitation.

During these years of hard work, I headed honest and reliable clinical researches, but mostly transfered my knowledge and my ethics to numerous of young fellows from all over the world.

My expertise, acquired along 30 years of experience and facing a growing surgical interventionism among my young colleagues, allows me to reassure the patients and stay truthful to my credo :

  • It takes 5 years to learn how to operate a shoulder.
  • It takes 10 years to learn how to be "good" at operating a shoulder.
  • It takes 20 years to learn when "not" to operate on a shoulder... "
