Dr. Felice Cosentino is a gastroenterologist and specialist in the field of surgery of the digestive system and endoscopy of the digestive tract. Former President of the Italian Society of Digestive Endoscopy (SIED), was the director of the complex operational unit of Gastroenterology and Digestive Endoscopy Ospedale universitarioSan Giuseppe in Milan (2008-2019) and dell Digestive Endoscopy Unit'Ospedale San Paolo in Milan. (1980-2007).

Currently operates at Casa di Cura "La Madonnina" in Milan.

Author of such weighty works as "The History of digestive endoscopy in Italy", "The White Book of Endoscopy", "Complications of digestive endoscopy". He also collaborated with The World Organization of Digestive Endoscopy for the creation and distribution of the video "Endoscopic Terminology".

He is particularly interested in the treatment of diseases of the digestive system (gastroesophageal reflux, colon polyps, diverticulosis, digestive bleeding, abdominal pain) and the causes of bloating, which may be associated with various conditions (food intolerance, dysbiosis, intestinal obstruction, etc.). In this last sector, very relevant, he founded Microbiota Clinic in collaboration with a group of experts (microbiologist, pharmacologist, infectious disease specialist, nutritionist) for quantitative and qualitative study of intestinal bacterial flora in order to identify any imbalances and intervention using targeted therapy.

For more than 40 years he has been engaged in endoscopy of the digestive tract, having experience in all areas, both diagnostic and therapeutic. In recent years, to meet the needs of users, he devoted himself to the development of "non-invasive" treatments such as nasal gastroscopy (with thin noninvasive tool that does not require sedation), colonic (retrograde flushing of the colon before colonoscopy to avoid the classic "liquor") and robotic colonoscopy Endotics (one-time tool operating without pain and complications).
