Officially opened in 2006, the Monaco Institute of Sports Medicine and Surgery (IM2S) is a clinic specialising in the treatment of osteoarticular disorders, orthopaedic surgery and trauma care.

To ensure maximum efficiency, its work is structured around several specialist centres (foot, ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, hand, wrist, etc.), complemented by an emergency trauma care department open seven days a week and a paediatric orthopaedics section for children aged five and over (wounds, fractures, deformities and growth disorders).

IM2S guarantees high-performance, appropriate care, and works tirelessly to improve patient comfort. Proof of this can be seen in the recent publication of a satisfaction survey showing that nearly 95% of patients were fully satisfied with the care provided, and 100% would recommend the clinic.

More detailed results from the survey showed that 99% were satisfied with the reception they received, 97% with waiting times and 96% with the clarity of information provided. The results with respect to pain management also speak for themselves: 20% of those surveyed said they experienced no pain, while a further 65% said they were satisfied with the pain relief they received.

The Prince’s Government thanks you for your daily contribution to upholding the quality of Monaco’s health care system and the Principality’s appeal in the fields of orthopaedics and sports medicine.

In October 2022, the Monaco Institute of Sports Medicine and Surgery (IM2S) carried out its first tendon graft operation using a living donor, under the leadership of Professor Christophe Trojani.

This world first was authorised by the Monegasque advisory committee on bioethical research ethics. The surgery involved reconstructing the anterior cruciate ligament in the left knee of a young female rugby player from Nice, aged 20, using the patellar tendon from her mother’s right knee.

The operation was fully funded by the Principality.

Note: in accordance with an agreement signed with Princess Grace Hospital (CHPG) in February 2018, IM2S will close its doors in a few years to become part of the new hospital currently being built. This merger between the two hospitals, which already collaborate regularly, is intended to pool the skills and equipment of both institutions in order to support the health of Monaco’s residents more efficiently.
