- Vascular surgery
I was born in Palermo, Italy, and studied medicine at the local medical school, University Policlinico, where Ie graduated with maximum grades in 1992. Having been granted the right to practice medicine in Italy the next year and in UK in 1994, I trained in vascular surgery in UK and worked in prestigious units both in Wessex (Southampton) and in the North West (South Manchester University). I also spent a year working in South Africa, at the Vascular Academic Unit of Pretoria, where I was appointed lecturer and where I developed an interested for vascular trauma. I was appointed Consultant in 2008 and worked at Blackpool Fylde and Wyre NHS for 8 years. Following the reconfiguration of vascular specialist services, in 2016 I moved to East Lancashire NHS Trust where I am currently employed.
I have maintained a strong link with the Fylde Coast area where my private practice is based.
I have a particular interest in medical education and I am Lecturer in Vascular Surgery at Salford University and recently also at University of Central Lancashire.

Current NHS consultant posts held
I was appointed Consultant in Vascular Surgery at Blackpool Teaching Hospital in 2008. I was immediately offered the role of clinical lead and was responsible for developing the EVAR service and for the introduction of an office-based treatment for varicose veins. In addition to the clinical work, I have been directly involved in the service reconfiguration process for the North West of England.
I have an interest in vascular trauma. I have also contributed to a research project run by the University of Lancaster which aimed to establish a link between atherosclerosis and dental infection.
I am an enthusiastic golfer and proud member of Royal Lytham Golf Club.
I enjoy music, particularly opera, and contrary to my fellow con-national, my favorite sport is NFL American Football rather than, as the american would call it, "Soccer"
