En bref


Spine Surgery Dr d'ASTORG provides spine surgical care or patients presenting with lumbar, thoracic or lumbor diseases, including degenerative articular diseases, hernia, scoliosis, rheumatoid or similar inflammatory, fracture, or tumor. 

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr Henri d’ASTORG is involved in clinical research, implant developments and professional education. 


Having grown up in Paris I attended Medical School at René Descartes University (Paris V) from 2000 to 2006. I formed during my Orthopaedic Residency in of famous Parisian departments ( Pitié Salpetrière, Saint Vincent de Paul, Mondor, Cochin, Beaujon Hospitals). In the main time I teached anatomy at the Surgical School of Paris between 2009 to 2011. I spent 2 years in Beaujon University Hospital as fellow along with Professor Guigui teaching anatomy and surgery at Paris VII University. In 2014 I moved to Cochin University Hospital for a year of post fellow teaching at Paris V University. Following this I started in private practice with the Centre Orthopédique Santy (2015), with a group of 14 orthopaedic surgcons. With my colleagues of the spine department Drs Vincent Fière and Marc Szadkowski we perform around 1200 spine procedures per year. We host a visitation center and run fellowship programs. We have a remit to work in a group, to discuss the clinical cases and perform complex or new surgery together. Personally I have a special interest in Spine Endoscopy, Enhanced Rehabilitation After Surgery, customized implants and teaching.
