Prof. Portinaro is a pediatric orthopedic surgeon and examins in particular children under 16 years old.
Dealing with paediatric patients is extremely complex. It requires not only the presence of highly specialized medical and paramedical personnel, but also other structures specifically designed and equipped to host and “entertain” this kind of patient.
It must be said, anyway, that young patients has a quicker resilience and, in absence of major associated diseases, their hospitalization is drastically reduced in comparison to the one of adult patients.
