Professor Giuseppe Kito Fusai
MS FRCS, Professor of Surgery
Consultant HPB Surgeon
Giuseppe Fusai qualified with honours in 1987 at the University of Milan, Italy. He began his training in General Surgery in Italy and in 1992 he was awarded with a Master of Surgery (MS) from the University of Parma.
He moved to the UK in 1995 and in 1996 became Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Giuseppe specialized in Hepato-pancreato-biliary Surgery and Liver Transplant and since 1999 has worked in several Centres of Excellence in the UK and abroad, including Nagoya University Hospital in Japan, well known for the treatment of cholangiocarcinoma.
He is a Consultant Surgeon in the Liver Unit at the Royal Free Hospital NHS Trust in Hampstead, London and also Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College London.
During the last ten years Giuseppe has performed more than 800 major complex surgical procedures on liver, pancreas and biliary tract, with a perioperative mortality lower than the national and international standard (< 2% for pancreas and <3% for liver). He has also performed more than 2000 laparoscopic cholecystectomies. The good outcome highlighted here is also the result of an integrated approach with anaesthetists, radiologists, gastroenterologists and highly selected nursing staff to provide the best and safest perioperative care.
His primary clinical and academic interest is in liver metastases, hilar cholangiocarcinoma and pancreatic cancer and in the modalities to treat patients with advanced disease, including vascular reconstruction.”
