It has been almost 60 years since the Syndesmosis Concept was first introduced in Italy, yet it remains relatively unknown. Despite sound surgical principles, indisputable evidence and unmatched results, mainstream medicine remains easily dismissive of something so radically different. Thus, the limited availability of Syndesmosis Surgery is a challenge with many layers.
Dedicated to the root problem
Despite all challenges facing Syndesmosis Surgery, we are inspired by stories of persistence within the medical field. In 1981, Dr. Barry Marshall drank an infected broth to demonstrate to disbelievers that bacteria is the main culprit in causing the common stomach ulcer – not spicy food and not the stress of a high-pressure lifestyle.
It took over 20 years of campaigning before the medical community recognized this true pathology for stomach ulcers. Now millions of people look to antibiotics to provide a simple solution to what was historically thought to be a complex problem. It will take time for others to recognize the true pathology for bunion formation and for Syndesmosis Surgery to become more accepted. We’re pleased to see others helping the effort in the United States and around the world:
