Initially devoted to adult orthopedic surgery, I discovered pediatric orthopedic surgery during my residency with Professors Raphaël Seringe and Jean Dubousset in Saint-Vincent de Paul University Hospital (Paris) : This has been the onset of my passion. I graduated Professor in 2006 in this institution, and moved to Necker-Sick Kids Hospital in Paris Descartes University.

I had the privilege to work during 20years with Raphaël Seringe, focusing my activity on lower limbs pathologies. Basic Research about gait initiation and 3D foot modelling with EOS completed clinical research about lower limbs disorders. I am General Secretary of French Pediatric Orthopedic Society since 2012. Travels in USA, Africa, Middle East, Polynesia enrich my experience. A marvelous opportunity, thanks to AFJO, has been a study travel in Japan in 1994. It is a real pleasure and an honour to be invited by the SOFJO 20 years later as a visiting Professor.
