Mario Pescatori

​​Mario Pescatori is specialized in General Surgery, Digestive Surgery and Endoscopy, and accredited in Surgical Coloproctology by the European Board, being a member of it. He spent 20 years at the Catholic University in Rome and more than one year at St Mark’s Hospital with Alan Parks, Christopher Williams and Peter Hawley. He visited the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic in US and the London Hospital in UK. He chaired the Coloproctology Unit at Villa Flaminia hospital in Rome for 14 years. 

He carried out more than 3000 surgical and endoscopic operations and published about 200 indexed articles, mainly on ulcerative colitis, rectal prolapse, constipation, fecal incontinence and anal fistulae. He first described the motor effect of transverse sigmoid miotomy for diverticular disease (BJS 1978), stapled rectal mucosectomy, the basis of the modern PPH, the evacuation pouchography or ileoanal reservoir disfunction), S ileoanal pouch with short efferent limb (Ann Surg 1985), lateroterminal S ileonal pouch (DCR 1995), spinal neuromodulation for chronic constipation (G.I.Motility , ed Wienbeck, Raven Press 1983), double muco-cutaneous flap for complex fistulae (IJCRD 1997), A1 -C3 validated incontinence score (DCR 1992), semiopen hemorrhoidectomy (TIC 2004), rectal pocket syndrome after PPH and iceberg diagram for obstructed defecation (CRD 2006), 3 degree endoscopicdynamic classification for rectal internal mucosal prolapse (IJCRD 1998), ileoanal Duhamel pouch for constipation (Coloproctology 1994), the role of PYY plasma levels in post-colectomy diarrhoea (Coloproctology 1995), spasm-related internal sphincterotomy for anal fissure (Coloproctology 1989), 0-10 score for the drawing-the-family test (Pelviperineology 2006).

He edited four textbooks and wrote three chapters in Springer’s books. He is fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, member of the American Society of Colon and rectal Surgeons, and ex-member of its Iternational Cmmittee, honorary President of the Italian Society of Colo-Rectal Surgery and of the Mediterranean Society of Coloproctology. 
He founded UCP Club and co-founded the European Association of Coloproctology, is Editor of Techniques in Coloproctology, an international indexed journal published by the Springer-Verlag, and reviewer of Member of the Editorial Board of World J Gastroenterol (2014-2017), Gut, Lancet, Colorectal Diseases, World Journal Gastroenterology, International Journal of Colorectal Disease, Diseases of the Colon and Rectum and other Italian and international journals. He has a 3-yrs Professorship at the University of Florence.  Honorary President International Society of the Pelvic Floor.
In the last years, supported by many members of his Society, he was against the overuse of surgery for functional constipation and hemorrhoids, the abuse of new expensive technologies, the hidden conflict of interest, and in favour of eclecticism and tailored evidence-based low-cost colorectal surgery.
Visiting Professor at the Vin Mec International Hospital, Hanoi, Vietnam, and at the Hamar Hospital, Norway, 2013-2014.
