The “orthopode” foot surgery team at the lyon clinique du parc
Dr. Coillard, Dr. Boublil and Dr. Grisard have tightened their teamwork since the start of 2016. They have known one another for more than 15 years, in a relationship that is not only professional but personal.
Professionally, their teamwork meets a need: for more than 20 years, the Clinique du Parc has been a reference center for foot and ankle surgery in Lyon. Over this time, forefoot surgery has progressively overtaken hindfoot and ankle surgery. Dr. Coillard and Dr. Boublil therefore sought out a colleague with a focus on these often complex pathologies that have come to take second place after forefoot procedures such as hallux valgus, Morton’s neuroma, claw-toe, etc.
As well as this range of pathologies, from toe to ankle, this teamwork also enables different techniques to be on offer for a given pathology: classical open surgery, minimally invasive surgery, percutaneous surgery, and arthroscopic surgery.
On the personal level, they get on very well together – in the seats to support the Lyon soccer and rugby clubs, or around a good meal with the wine selected by the designated expert and wine-lover, Dr. Coillard.
Their workplace encourages communication: it is easy to drop by an office to share opinion on a complicated case, or to see patients together.
This fellow-feeling results in very constructive teamwork in which everyone is a winner, and most of all the patient. This also involves sharing the work: when one or two of them are tied up in consultation, the other one is probably in the operating room, ready for any emergency Achilles tendon tear, ankle fracture or other accident.
