I studied medicine at the University of Bari in Italy, from 1986 to 1992. After completion of my general surgical training, I continued my higher orthopaedic training at the same university. I spent periods of fellowship at the Danderyd Hospital - Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden and at the Southern California Orthopaedic Institute in Los Angeles, USA, where I started research into shoulder arthroscopy and open shoulder surgery.

From 1999 to 2000 I was appointed shoulder surgery fellow at the Reading Shoulder Unit at the Royal Berkshire Hospital under Stephen Copeland and Ofer Levy. Here I gained vast experience in shoulder and elbow surgery. In 2000, after completion of my fellowship at the Reading Shoulder Unit, I returned to Italy and was appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Madonna delle Grazie Hospital in Matera, Italy, as head of the shoulder and elbow unit. From 2006 I was head of the shoulder and elbow unit at Policlinico di Bari at the University Hospital.

Annually, I attend the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, USA for visiting fellowships under S O'Driscoll and B Morrey, to improve my knowledge and clinical practice in elbow surgery.

In October 2004 I joined the Reading Shoulder Unit at the Independent Berkshire hospital. In 2005 I worked as Locum Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon at St Peter and Ashford Hospitals NHS Trust for several months. In 2007, I was appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Worcestershire NHS Trust, where I continue to work treating complex shoulder and elbow disease through open and arthroscopic surgery.

In 2012 I joined the team at Spire Dunedin Hospital and continue to work with the orthopaedic team, performing shoulder and elbow surgery, arthroscopy and treating trauma and sports injuries.
