Dr Vittorio Quagliuolo is leading the team of Oncological Surgery and the Sarcoma Unit in Humanitas Cancer Center. His professional career started at the National Cancer Institute in Milan (under the teaching of prof Umberto Veronesi) where he acted at the Dept of Digestive & Hepatobiliary Surgery and Sarcoma Unit chaired at that time by his mentor prof Leandro Gennari, the pioneer of oncological hepatobiliary surgery in Italy, limb sparing surgery in sarcomas, sphincter saving surgery in colorectal cancer and liver transplantation for malgnancy.

Dr Quagliuolo was one of the founding members of the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO), of the European School of Oncology (ESO), European Society of Mastology (EUSOMA), and the Italian Sarcoma Group ( ISG).

His surgical expertise is particularly founded on the field of soft tissue sarcomas of limbs and retroperitoneum with more than 1000 surgical resections.
