Prof. A. Giovannini

I thoroughly enjoyed my previous junior appointments with internationally known surgeons. In particular, my residency training with Dr. S. Benedetti and Prof. A.Giovannini, then further training with Prof. C. Azzolini and Prof. F. Bandella, provided me with a wide and varied experience in both medicai and surgical retina, giving me an excellent grounding in those subspecialties. However, the time spent with Prof. D. Mcleod at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, England and Dr. Bustros at the “Ingalls Memoria! Hospital”, Chicago, USA, were of paramount importance for my surgical formation (see “Overseas experience” p.20). I gained a large experience in both vitreoretinal and cataract surgery. To date, I have carried out more than 6000 operations on the posterior segment including: scierai bucklings, P. P. V.s (by 20G, 23G and 25G), combinations of both and pneumatic retinopexies. Furthermore, I performed a number of keratoplasties after using the temporary keratoprosthesis for severe eye trauma (vitrectomy+ keratoplasty). I screen and treat all ROP stages. I have accomplished a large number of retinai laser treatments. I am familiar with phacoemulsification procedures having carried out more than 2000, most of which were complex cases. I operate “congenita! cataract” with PC-IOL implantation, also in children foursix months old. I performed a number of scierai sutured and posterior-iris fixed lenses. I feel I have all of the necessary clinica! and interpersonal skills to perform the duties of a vitreoretinal and cataract surgeon to a high standard. I operate an average of 6 vitreoretinal cases a week. I am responsible for “eye trauma” cases and complex cataracts. I run one vitreoretinal and one medicai retina out patient clinic per week. I am responsible for ROP screening and treatment.
