Vincenzo Di Benedetto

Chirurgo Pediatra

Grazie agli oltre 6000 interventi chirurgici eseguiti il prof. Vincenzo Di Benedetto ha maturato sul campo una considerevole esperienza nell'ambito della chirurgia pediatrica.

Tale esperienza abbraccia molteplici aspetti, come la chirurgia laparoscopica (mini invasiva) pediatrica, dedicandosi in prima persona a procedure chirurgiche da eseguire in epoca neonatale per il trattamento delle malformazioni ano-rettali alte e il megacolon congenito secondo Georghesson.

Il prof. Di Benedetto si è inoltre occupato della chirurgia del neonato con ernia diaframmatica ed atresia dell’esofago oltre alla patologia neonatale del tratto gastroenterico.

Ha acquisito inoltre competenza nella chirurgia ricostruttiva complessa dell’apparato urogenitale (Complesso Estrofico, celosomie inferiori e delle Sindromi adrenogenitali), oltre che nella Chirurgia Oncologica pediatrica lavorando attualmente nel Centro di Riferimento Siciliano per la cura dei tumori in età pediatrica.

Durante la sua carriera ha maturato una importante esperienza nella gestione dell’urgenza chirurgica pediatrica, essendosi occupato del settore pediatrico di uno dei Trauma Center Regionali della Regione Sicilia, presso l’ospedale Cannizzaro di Catania.
