General surgeon


Professor Giorgio Ettore Rossi is a general surgeon at Casa di Cura La Madonnina.

After graduating in medicine and surgery from the University of Milan in 1977, he specialized in the same university first in general surgery (1982) and then in microsurgery (1985), also making several stays abroad (Germany-United States), during which he could deepen his skills in the field of liver transplantation and hepatobiliopancreatic surgery.

Throughout his career, Professor Giorgio Ettore Rossi has worked at the Fondazione Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico in Milan, where from 2005 to 2021 he served as head of the Complex Operative Unit, General Surgery and Liver Transplantation, and since 2022, he has been a consultant at the same Operative Unit.

From academic and university point of view, Dr. Rossi was an associate professor and later a full professor at the University of Milan where he taught Clinical Surgery and Surgical Therapy. In addition, from 2005 to 2012, he was the director of the School of Pediatric Surgery Residency.

From 2015 to 2021, he was coordinator of the course Clinical Surgery and Surgical Therapy for the Bachelor of Medicine of the State University of Milan - Central Pole.

His clinical work focuses on Digestive Surgery in which, in addition to the traditional approach, he uses the minimally invasive/robotic approach. Specifically, Professor Rossi mainly treats malignant and benign neoplastic pathologies affecting:

  • liver
  • gallbladder and biliary tract
  • pancreas

But he also deals with:

  • abdominal wall surgery
  • large laparoceles
  • outpatient surgery

To treat focal liver lesions, the professor uses the most innovative techniques such as laparoscopic or percutaneous thermoablation.

His experience has helped improve surgical treatment of liver and biliary diseases in both adult and pediatric settings (choledoch cysts-biliary tract atresia). He has an operating record of more than 6,000 general surgeries as a first operator or guardian, in both elective and emergency settings.

Finally, as for the research activity carried out, this mainly concerns the surgical field and specifically liver transplantation and hepatobiliopancreatic diseases. With over 250 scientific publications indexed on PUBMED, 2428 citations, and H-index of 24 and 15 book chapters as author and co-author, Professor Rossi is invited and participates in numerous national and international conferences.
