Sergio Alfieri is the surgeon who operated again on Pope Francis at the Policlinico Gemelli in Rome after the surgery carried out in July two years ago for a symptomatic diverticular stenosis of the colon. The surgeon to date has conducted more than 9000 operations and comes from the direct line and the school of surgeons close to the pontiffs. Alfieri was in fact a pupil of the surgeon Giovanni Battista Doglietto, who in turn was in the team of Francesco Crucitti, who went down in history as the surgeon of John Paul II for having operated three times
Alfieri in particular has dedicated himself to colorectal surgery, developing minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic and robotic) with a percentage that today stands at 85%.
He is also an expert in pancreatic surgery, acute pancreatitis, stomach surgery, but also abdominal and pelvic mass surgery and surgery of liver metastases from colorectal cancer.
