There are several corneal transplant centers in Italy. The best thing to do is rely onto a transplant center that performs all the latest surgical techniques.
The different kinds of corneal transplant complement each other: that is why you should contact a center that has a great on the field experience, able to performa all kinds of transplant (lamellar corneal surgery, artificial corneal surgery, and so on).
For example, centers that can perform anterior lamellar transplant DALK are only a few because this technique is pretty complex even though allow for a quicker post-op with less complications.
Dr. Badalà performs this kind of corneal surgery and all the other kinds in Milan and Catania.
Vittoria Monza, MilanVotazione: EccellenteAfter an unsuccessful corneal transplant (resulting from a trauma), my right eye was given up for lost. Subsequently I met Dr. Badalà, and he told me that an artificial corneal transplant surgery (Boston Keratoprosthesi... Keep on reading this reviews) would have restored my sight.
I had no doubts, in December 2011 I underwent surgery. During the operation under local anesthesia, I did not feel any pain. I immediately went home at the end of the operation, sure that Dr. Badala would be available at any time.
The post-operation was without any complication. I immediately went back to my everyday life with some attention (at the time I was 69), happy with my sight back from an eye that I had given up for lost. The only thing to keep in mind is to be extremely scrupulous in following the eye drops treatment and, above all, do not miss the regular follow-ups.
Dr. Badala is extremely helpful. With his assistance you do not feel left alone! This point is very important .... And for this reason I'm very grateful.
