Finally, in 2020, he received his doctorate in the field of oncology of the digestive tract at the University of Rome La Sapienza.

Dr. Tamburrino's clinical activity focuses, in particular, on oncological diseases of the hepatobiliopancreatic region.

As the first surgeon, he performed about 500 operations, mainly in extensive abdominal surgery, including minimally invasive techniques. During his stay in England, he began to independently carry out surgical treatment of tumors of the hepatobiliary pancreatic tract. Thanks to the experience of liver transplantation, he is able to perform both arterial and venous complex vascular anastomoses.

The main areas of research include: exocrine and endocrine neoplasms of the pancreas and gastrointestinal tract; complications after pancreatic surgery.

Dr. Tamburrino is a member of the following scientific societies: Italian Pancreatic Research Association (AISP), European Society of Neuroendocrine Tumors (ENETS), European Pancreatic Club (EPC), ItaNET, Society of Neuroendocrine Tumors of Great Britain and Ireland, European-African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (E-AHPBA)

He is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Italian Pro-Profile Society of Young Surgeons (SPIGC).
