Dr Tarik Ait Si Selmi

After having being grown up in Paris, I reached the School of Medicine at the Pierre & Marie Curie University (Paris VI) from 1982 to 1989. I then achieved one year Military Duty in Central Africa, as Medical Doctor, at the 9th Overseas Marines Unit based in Nantes. I have moved to Lyon in 1990 to achieve my residency in Orthopaedic Surgery and graduated in 1995. My training and current practice are focused on Hip and Knee surgery. I have both a Public and Private practices in the Croix Rousse University Hospital with the position of Associate Director along with Professor Philippe Neyret. I am in charge of the hip practice and have a special interest in cementless hip replacements, conservative solutions and minimally invasive approaches.I am currently in Australia for one year fellowship, aiming to share practices and research issues with different colleagues toward knee and hip replacements and repair.
