Our activities focus on supporting babies and newborns affected by serious pathologies. This, of course, includes supporting their families, especially when they originate from tough social backgrounds. The world of pediatric surgery is, however, incredibly complex and multi-faceted; through our activities, we strive to reflect this complexity, pursuing our main objective in several different ways.
Our initiatives have often proved to be of fundamental importance in stimulating other, more far-reaching projects, always keeping children as the primary focus.
These projects have a positive impact not only on the patients themselves, but also on all the sector’s operators, at a regional as well as a national level.

"The "Surgical Cradle" Project was born with the main goal of donating highly sophisticated, state-of-the-art cradles to the Neonatal Surgery Unit of Milan's Policlinic Hospital. A more detailed description of this project can be found in the following article (A Hi-Tech Surgical Cradle). Upon delivering the first of such cradles to the unit, our President (Dr. Corrado Ruffini), as well as two members of our Board of Directors (Doctors Fabio Mosca and Ernesto Leva), stopped to answer a few questions from a local media outlet. In this video you can find a montage of their answers."
