Graduated in 1986 in Italy. Soon after, he was appointed 1st year post- graduate resident in General Surgery at the Bronx- Lebanon Hospital of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, where he completed his surgical internship. He then moved to London, where in 1993, he completed his Basic Surgical Training, attaining the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh). In 1996, while he was doing basic science research on Ligaments biomechanics at Imperial College London, he was appointed Specialist Registrar on the South Thames Higher Surgical training Programme in Trauma & Orthopaedics, based at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals, London. In 2003, he completed his specialist training, having passed the Specialist Board Examination in Trauma & Orthopaedics and was awarded the Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training in the same Specialty. During his surgical training, Mr Basso was awarded a Higher Academic Degree (Master of Surgery) by the University of London (year 2000) for his research on ligaments biomechanics at Imperial College. This work won prestigious prizes and was presented at the World Congress on Orthopaedic Sports Trauma 2000 in Brisbane. The work was finally published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, among others.
Mr Basso’s sub specialist training in Hand Surgery took place at St. Andrew’s Centre, the North- East Thames Regional Hand & Plastic Surgery Unit, situated in Essex. His Shoulder surgery training took place at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton. He is currently on the General Medical Council Specialist Register.
Mr Basso is a member of the British Society of Surgery of the Hand (BSSH) and also a component of the 'Scaphoid Fractures Study Group'. As such, Mr Basso participated, as Project Leader Collaborator, in the collection of clinical data to be included in the National Audit on Occult Scaphoid fractures, led by the BSSH. More recently, he collaborated further with the BSSH to develop the ‘Trigger trial’, another multicentre clinical project, aimed at comparing the clinical effectiveness of steroid injection versus surgery in treating trigger fingers. He is about to start a further clinical research project on chronic wrist pain.
Regarding his clinical skills, Mr Basso is a wrist arthroscopist, experienced in the surgical treatment of wrist pain and repair of ruptured hand and wrist ligaments.
Surgical skills include release of Dupuytren’s contracture, correction of base of the thumb osteoarthritis, fingers joint prosthetic replacement for painful intractable osteoarthritis and correction of fingers deformity, to mention a few.
His interest in promoting the best possible Patients' experience has made him very keen on improving and monitoring Patients' satisfaction levels, prompting him to publish two articles on the topic of patients experience through hospital services.
Mr Basso's patients are all invited to enrol in the UK Hand Registry of the British Society Surgery of the Hand (BSSH), which employs cutting edge digital technology to collect, store and process individual clinical data, monitoring the progress of the treated condition over many years, allowing a precise and reliable measurement of clinical outcome.
