Dr Jean-Luc Grisard
Dr. Jean-Luc Grisard is an orthopedic surgeon in Lyon specializing in foot and ankle surgery.
Dr. Jean-Luc Grisard qualified in physical and sports education in 1986, before turning to medical studies, which he completed in 1992. He then specialized in orthopedic and traumatologic surgery, in the University of Liège. In 1996, he took a certificate in sports surgery in Paris. He set up in practice in Savoy in 1998 and undertook a specialization in foot and ankle surgery at Claude Bernard University, in Lyon, qualifying in 2002.
At the same time, he went into joint practice with Dr. Jean-Jacques Legrand, in the Clinique Saint-Joseph in Chambéry. Here he was able to develop foot and ankle surgery, for which there were no specialists in Savoy or High Savoy, while Dr. Legrand focused on hip and knee surgery.
In 2003, he took the chair of the Nosocomial Infection Committee (now known as the Infection Risk Prevention Committee), and he and his team at Saint-Joseph secured high ranking among French private-sector hospitals in the fight against infection.
In November 2010, he joined the executive bureau of the French Foot Surgery association, as Secretary for Regulatory Affairs, under the presidency of his colleague and friend, Dr. Jean-Luc Besse, from the South Lyon University Hospital. Dr. Besse and he were actively involved in setting up the French Ankle Implant Registry, to keep an exhaustive record of all ankle prostheses implanted in France.
From November 2010, he was a member of the “small group” entrusted with setting up the French Total Ankle Replacement Registry, once again alongside Dr. Besse. This was a complex and long-term commitment, and it was only in June 2012, after 2 years’ effort, that the French data protection commission (CNIL) finally approved the Registry, the purpose of which is to collate data on implant lifespan, failure rates, etc. Compared to series published by specialists who are often very highly experienced, the data obtainable from the National Health Insurance scheme show much higher failure rates…
In January 2010, he undertook a university certificate course as expert medical witness for bodily injury assessment, which he completed in September 2012, with a thesis on conflicts of interest in the medical world, and notably the history of how a defective ankle prosthesis got withdrawn from the French market in 2008.
He is currently working in the Lyon Clinique du Parc, in association with Dr. Jean-Yves COILLARD and Dr. Daniel BOUBLIL. He deals with pathologies of the ankle (degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis, but also sports pathologies), hindfoot (flat foot, etc.) and toes (hallux valgus, claw-toe, Morton’s neuroma, etc.).
He is an active member of the AFCP and represents the association in Orthorisq, an organization involved in the accreditation of orthopedic surgeons in France, under the Health Authority (Haute Autorité de Santé).
He is also a member of the European Foot and Ankle Society (EFAS) and the American AOFAS society, of which he is an active member, with a presentation made at the Congress in Long Beach, California, on the long-term results in his personal series of big-toe fusion.
He is also an expert witness for the Appeals Court in Chambéry.
