Dr. Federico G. Usuelli

The world’s leading foot and ankle surgeon, specialising in innovative ankle prosthesis techniques.

As you may already know by now, my name is Federico Usuelli and I’m one of the world’s leading and pioneering ankle prosthesis surgeons.

Ankle prosthesis (replacement) surgery involves carefully substituting a patient’s real ankle bone with a realistic, artificial version. I am proud to have successfully helped so many people from all over the world, especially from the UK, who have desperately needed ankle prosthesis treatment. At my leading Italian, orthopaedic clinic, we’re proud to have effectively treated so many UK patients who’ve been unable to receive the same level of treatment back in their own countries.

My Diagnosis

Before performing an advanced ankle prosthesis procedure, we carefully diagnose each individual patient by assessing their age, the severity of their malformation and the condition of their ankle bone.

My Pioneering Techniques

UK patients needing an ankle replacement procedure, can be successfully treated with two of my famous and innovative implantation techniques. These consist of a mobile-bearing and resurfacing method.


This pioneering technique entails three rudimentary modules: a tibial, talar, and a polyethylene insertion termed “meniscus”.

Resurfacing Technique

My resurfacing technique has been hugely successful around the orthopaedic arena and it is an original and extremely cutting-edge technique performed by only a handful of the world’s leading surgeons.
Orthopaedic technology has progressed rapidly in recent years and by using state-of-the-art Trabecular Metal ™, I can replicate the biomechanical features of actual bone material. Presently in Italy, I have implemented the most operations by means of the resurfacing method. You can read about the mobile bearing and resurfacing procedures in more detail on my website
