Claudio Irace tessera 

My skills:

Spinal surgery, in particolar for lumbar and cervical degenerative disc diseases (DDD): disc protrusions and herniations, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and instability, synovial cysts.

Peripheral nerve surgery, in particolar tumor excision, virgin and recurring carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) and sacral neuromodulation; surgical implantation of electrodes for chronic pain syndromes and severe sphincterial disorders

Orbital surgery; tumor and vascular malformations

Why to contact me:

Spinal surgery you have been diagnosed a lumbar disc herniation and/or lumbar spinal stenosis and you like to be cured by means of minimally invasive surgery; or, to receive a ‘second opinion’ before undergoing surgery.

Are you affected by a carpal tunnel syndrome? My personal series is about 1000 operated cases and I think I may help you by means of a fast microsurgical operation.

A very long professional experience. Since 1988 I have surgically implanted systems for spinal cord stimulation (SCS) and I am currently member of the Lombardia Neurosurgucal Group for SCS .

Orbital tumours. Orbital tumours are rare; in my surgical activity I have been able to reach a long-lasting experience in this particular area.



The IRACE method for preventing errors in the operating room

Many spinal surgical procedures, mainly those performed in the lumbar region, are usually considered as mildly or moderately difficult; however different potential complications may arise: one of these is the so-called ‘wrong level’, meaning an operation performed at a level which isn’t the pathological one. This error is commonly considered one of the main causes of a disease called ‘failed back surgery syndrome’ (FBSS), which may represent a true ordeal for the affected people.

On 2010 I published an original method –the so-called ‘IRACE method’- which is considered one of the universally accepted strategies to be adopted to avoid this surgical error.
