The Center for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Rokitansky Syndrome includes a multidisciplinary team which is headed by Dr. Luigi Fedele, MD. Our team is composed of gynaecologists, nurses, psychologists, as well as geneticians, cardiologists, nephrologists and radiologists, who are all specialised in the care of this condition.

 

Since many decades, Dr. Fedele and his team have been dedicated to extensive research on this specific topic, and have published the following scientific studies regarding Rokitansky syndrome:
