Rhinoplasty

My Way


I am a surgeon whose professional activity is entirely devoted to the practice of rhinoplasty.

My belief is simple. The way to master any art form comes only with a singular commitment to it. Only then, do I believe that one can master and predict the outcomes of this finest surgery.
My zenith rewards…the sharing of a YOUnique rhinoplasty journey with my patients and the enhancement of their self-confidence with their renewed self. In conclusion it is a journey as life changing for them as it is for myself.

Milano Masterclass

In 2001, Prof. Pietro Palma and Prof. Paolo Castelnuovo conceived and directed the two-year course MilanoMasterclass.it. Over the years, the brand Milano Masterclass has become synonym with excellence in rhinoplasty post-graduate training and endoscopic surgery of the paranasal sinuses and skull base.

The numbers testify to the great success of the initiative. Since its debut, almost 4000 surgeons from 92 different countries have participated. The innovative teaching formula of Milano Masterclass has been taken as a model in Italy and worldwide. About 700 surgeons from 67 different countries took part in the ninth edition.

eXlsa – Extreme Live Surgery Arena

The pilot project “eXlsa – Extreme Live Surgery Arena” is an engaging teaching initiative with no equal on the national and international scene. The educational format, conceived and realized in collaboration with Prof. Castelnuovo, aims to teach advanced nasal surgery.

The live transmission of surgical operations on complex cases allows the instantaneous interaction between operating surgeons and participants. Up to now, two editions took place with great success in 2014 and 2016.

Andreas Vesalius Courses

Pietro Palma developed and conducted for twenty years (1991-2011) the prestigious “Andreas Vesalius Courses” at the Institute of Anatomy of the Brussels University.

The novelty of the “Andreas Vesalius Courses” lies in the peculiar didactic format that would have become a standard of surgical teaching in the following decades. The course program focused on a series of operations that were the object of individual dissection exercises. The step-by-step video-guided dissections, the making of specific and accurate dissection manuals, and the support of personal tutors were all part of an educational tool-kit designed for each learner to explore complex anatomical regions and acquire specific manual skills.

The “Andreas Vesalius Courses” have consistently represented a milestone for the practical-anatomical training of Italian surgeons, as well as an excellent training in nose, paranasal and head-neck surgery.
