Clinical Interest for Patients
I am convinced that pediatric surgery is the most curative of all surgical specialties. Pediatric surgery requires a special temperament, meticulous technique and delicate maneuvers. I love children.

Care Philosophy
I am personally aware of the suffering of the parents of children born with congenital anomalies therefore I dedicate special time and effort to console and reassure the parents of my patients.

Personal Interests
My first son died from a congenital malformation. This represents the most important motivation to practice pediatric surgery. I have special interest in the study of human nature (socio-biology).

Volunteer Activities
I have travelled to over 50 countries giving lecture and operative demonstrations related to colorectal congenital problems.

Public Speaking
I have spoken about Surgical Treatment of Anorectal Malformation and Colorectal congenital disorders. Teaching of pediatric surgery. Motivating the young generation of pediatric surgeons.

Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
During the last 30 years I have been focusing my interest in the surgical treatment of colorectal problems in children. As a consequence, nowadays I fully dedicated to take care of those conditions, convinced that by working in a single group of problems allows us to make contributions to improve the care of those conditions.

Research Interest for Referring Providers
My research interest has been mainly clinical. During my career I collected information related to over 2500 surgical repairs of anorectal malformations. That information is now part of the largest database ever collected on anorectal malformations. The analysis of the information collected in the database represents the source of over 200 publications.
