Prof. Gilberto Poggioli specializes in general surgery.
It is mainly engaged in the digestive surgery (surgical oncology and laparoscopic), in particular of chronic inflammatory bowel disease and cancer of the rectum. One of his most fields of expertise and hard work from the scientific point of view is the experimental microsurgery, thanks to a fruitful training abroad (USA), for which he perfected the techniques of small bowel transplantation in rats. His work at the General Surgery Unit of the University of Bologna has allowed the center to become a reference point in Europe for the treatment of cancer of the rectum. Another field of interest is Crohn's disease: over the years has developed techniques of conservative surgical treatment of the disease, also analyzing the cases of post-surgical recurrence.
