Giomi: 70 years in the service of health
The Giomi Group has its roots in 1949, when Professor Franco Faggiana, surgeon and lecturer at the La Sapienza University of Rome, together with some entrepreneurs decided to set up the company.
The goal was to create state-of-the-art hospital facilities in the orthopedic sector by investing in the southern part of Italy. The first hospital, the “Franco Faggiana” Orthopedic Institute, was in fact located in Reggio Calabria in 1951, while in 1956 the “Franco Scalabrino” Hospital was inaugurated in Messina, Sicily.
In 1971, Giomi arrived in Lazio with the “Marco Pasquali” ICOT Institute of Latina, which today houses the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the La Sapienza University. For over 70 years the company has continued to grow and specialize in new sectors to become the leader in Italian private healthcare. Today it has 9 hospitals, 16 Nursing homes and nursing homes, 3 dialysis centers and 8 participated health facilities.
Prosthetic Orthopedic Surgery: what it consists of and what are the challenges for the future
Orthopedics was Giomi’s first area of specialization and continues to be one of its excellence: prosthetic orthopedic surgery is performed by the best surgeons in innovative structures.
The operations consist in the implantation of an internal prosthesis, that is an artificial joint that replaces the damaged one, which is no longer able to guarantee normal movement and manifesting pain, inflammation and stiffness in the patient.
The new techniques make it possible to implant reliable and long-lasting prostheses, thanks to which it is possible to return to normal daily activities without pain or walking difficulties. Depending on the state of the affected joint, the intervention can take place with minimally invasive techniques: an incision of a few centimeters is performed guided by computerized medical instruments.
