In the field of surgery I specialise in abdominal surgery, especially gastric-oncological and functional surgery, such as bariatric surgery for overweight patients (Centro per la cura dell'obesità). In abdominal surgery I also specialise in oncological and functional colorectal surgery and proctology. I would like to emphasise that I am able to carry out highly specialised visceral surgery such as rectal surgery at cantonal and federal level.
This field also includes endocrine surgery - especially thyroid gland, adrenal gland and renal bed surgery.
I have been an attending physician since October 2012 at the Clinica Luganese Moncucco: this is a private clinic, which is growing very dynamically in various specialist areas.
In cooperation with the Department of Abdominal Surgery at the University Hospital Lausanne (CHUV), where I am also an attending physician, I deal with oncological and functional bilio-pancreatic surgery. Liver surgery is practised almost exclusively in Lausanne.
From first of mai 2014 I am also attending physician at the Ente Ospedaliero Cantonale in the Ospedale Regionale Bellinzona e Valli.
In the field of general surgery I also deal with surgery for hernia, for gall bladder, for haemorrhoids, surgery for appendix, “basic“ thoracic surgery procedures and small-scale traumatology like conservative or occasionally surgical treatment of small fractures.
