I have been a surgeon for almost then years, of which i spent the last 6 years in Uk. Since 2019 I have been a Consultant surgeon based at Mid Cheshire NHS Foundation Trust, specialised in Laparoscopic general and UGI Surgery.
As part of the UGI service, I work closely within a team of multidisciplinary healthcare professionals to ensure we deliver a high quality and safe service for our patients.
I have an interest in laparoscopic and other â€˜minimally invasiveâ€™ surgical treatments for a wide range of disorders involving the gastrointestinal tract, gallbladder pathology and OTC, bile duct exploration, inguinal hernia, ventral and umbilical hernia. These are procedure performed open or laparoscopically. I am also specialised in UGI tract pathologies as Hiatus Hernia, dysphagia and conservative/operative management of reflux disease
I can speak fluently English and Italian and I would like to advertise the possibility to run clinic in both languages as could be helpful for the private patients from the Italian community leaving in this side of the UK.
Areas of interest
I am specialised in laparoscopic and open gastro-intestinal surgery, with a special interest in hernia repairs and abdominal wall reconstruction, laparoscopic cholecystectomy/bile duct exploration, anti reflux surgery and Hiatus hernia repairs.

In 2009 a earthquake destroyed my city L'Aquila - Italy. This event left a big sign in my personal life and in my surgical training, being on the first line as surgeon in a natural disaster event. I have a special interest in trauma and emergency surgery beside my special interest in UGI and Laparoscopic surgery.
I have a lovely family, with a beautiful 2 year old daughter and a wonderful wife. We love spend time together, having nice walks with our dog and enjoying the britihsh country side.
