Overview

I specialized in robotic surgery, especially in the prostate, but without neglecting other kidney and high urinary pathologies, such as renal tumor, the ureteral-joint syndrome. This is because I am convinced that, in selected patients, the robotic technique is the best to guarantee healing, minimizing the impact of surgery on the patient's quality of life, reducing complications as much as possible.

I had the opportunity to train with the best professionals in the world, in Italy and abroad, and from all of them I learned the techniques, the passion and the ethics necessary to carry on the profession of the doctor.
