design and development of this site was done by Alberto
Idea was from Maurizio
Catagni, they actually provide support for all the ASAMI
web site, if you want to partecipate in this you can
contact them directly and ask for collaboration.
We think more people can help us in producing content
and more useful and helpful could be this site, for
doctors as a point of starting, discussing, updating
their aknowledgment on this technique, and also for
people interested in this type of surgery, giving them
the possibility to explore all the cases and different
kind of techniques used.
