The Division has excellent results and adequate volume of activity standing for many diseases at the top of the Italian clinical institutions.

A significant part of the surgical procedures are carried out with a minimally invasive approach (laparoscopic and robotic). The case histories of patients undergoing robotic surgery for the treatment of rectal cancer ranks among the most numerous in the world.

Liver metastases is  evaluated and treated in collaboration with the Interventional Radiology Unit ensuring high clinical efficacy and in many cases minimally invasive procedures.

Treatments of pelvic recurrences and peritoneal carcinomatosis with cytoredcutive surgery (CRS) and Hyperthermic Peritoneal Chemoptherapy (HIPEC) are regularly part of the surgical activity of the Division.

The Division includes the following Units:

Multidisciplinary Surgical Techniques Unit

Innovative Surgical Techniques Unit

Our activities

The Division of Abdomino-Pelvic Surgery deals with surgical treatment, even in integrated multidisciplinary programs, of all digestive tumors: oesophageal tumorsgastric tumorsduodenumsmall bowelcolorectalanusliver and pancreas carcinomas. The surgeons of the Division have also developed a specific competence for the treatment of abdominal sarcomas, gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), neuroendocrine tumors of the digestive tract, the peritoneal carcinomatosis and pelvic recurrences.

A significant portion of routine clinical activity usually involves a close cooperation with other IEO clinical Divisions (Gynaecologic SurgeryThoracic SurgeryUrologic Surgery and Melanoma) in order to provide comprehensive care for oncologic diseases demanding skills and medical knowledge from different specialties (advanced ovarian carcinomas, oesophageal neoplasms extending into the abdomen, highgrade male pelvis tumours, visceral deposits of melanomas).

A significant part of the surgical procedures are carried out with a minimally invasive approach (laparoscopic and robotic), at present time regularly applied to the treatment of tumors arising from colon and rectum, stomach, liver, spleen, pancreas and adrenal glands.

The case histories of patients undergoing robotic surgery for the treatment of rectal cancer exceeds 300 cases treated and ranks among the most numerous in the world.

The Division includes the following units: Multidisciplinary Surgical Techniques Unit and Innovative Surgical Techniques Unit
