Giovanni Domenico Tebala
Consultant Gastrointestinal and Laparoscopic Surgeon
Isle of Man
Giovanni Domenico Tebala has been trained as an abdominal surgeon since the first years of the School of Medicine. Early in my university course, I started to attend the Department of General Surgery of the Catholic University A. Gemelli Hospital, in Rome (Italy). I graduated in 1992 and got the specialization degree in General Surgery in 1999 at the same University.
During my surgical training, and afterward, I obtained advanced training in colorectal surgery, upper gastrointestinal surgery, hepatobiliary surgery, laparoscopic surgery, proctology and pelvic floor surgery, emergency and trauma surgery, upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy. Furthermore, I got a good experience in urologic and gynecological surgery.
My main scientific interest has always been the treatment of colorectal and upper GI/HBP cancers. From 1999 to 2013 I worked as a Consultant Surgeon at the Aurelia Hospital in Rome, where I have been in charge of the Digestive and Laparo-Endoscopic Surgery Unit from 2007 to 2013.
Following my deep aspirations and my continuous search for something new and better for myself, my career, my professionalism and my family, I registered to the General Medical Council (UK) as a Specialist in General Surgery and in march 2013 I have been appointed as a Consultant Gastrointestinal and Laparoscopic Surgeon at the Nobles Hospital, Isle of Man, where I restarted colorectal surgery and became Chair of the Colorectal Cancer Multidisciplinary Team.
I enjoy working in the hospital environment and patients and their health and safety come always first for me, even in my managerial role. However, I strongly believe that our job is not just the clinical care but it has also an educational and public role, working with and for the local population in order to increase public awareness and knowledge on healthcare issues and to create a safer environment to live in.
