The main clinical and research interests of Dr. Trisolino are related to the study of hip and knee OA, having in mind that the therapeutic strategies must be tailored on the goals of each patient. In this spirit he believes in a comprehensive approach to patient care, in which all the paths for alternatives to joint replacement must be explored before THR o TKR are considered. He thinks that physical therapy, patient education, pharmacologic and nutraceutical measures, preserving surgery and arthroscopic procedures will be used to deal with the early stage of OA, while total replacement should be considered only in the late stage of the disease. Dr. Trisolino is also interested in evidence-based medicine and research methodology in order to realize the most effective therapeutic treatments in hip and knee OA.
