He began his medical education at the University of Brescia, first by earning a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree in 1998, and then a Specialization degree in General Surgery in 2004. He then enriched his medical education and surgical training with residential courses and visiting periods in excellent medical centers in Italy, Belgium, France, and the United Kingdom.

His surgical track-record (in election, as well as in urgency/emergency) covers all fields of general surgery with both traditional methods and the latest mini-invasive techniques (advanced laparoscopic and robotic). In the last few years, visceral, hepatobiliary, and pancreatic surgical oncology are the fields for which he has developed a special surgical and research interest. He also performs organ harvesting.

During his 13-year long career, he has given more than 200 presentations in national and international medical congresses as invited speaker, moderator, or discussant, and has published more than 120 articles in peer-reviewed journals indexed in WOS and Scopus, including the top ones.
