H-Index=26, probably the best Brazilian Curriculum in the Surgical Oncology specialty. Recognized as top 10 physicians by the Folha de São Paulo Journal Survey in XX, the largest Brazilian Journal.  Several awarded works, mainly on Surgical Oncology.  Member of several Medical Societies and president of Brazilian Society  of Surgical Oncology(2012-2014).

Former president of the  Brazilian Society of Surgical Oncology São Paulo Section .  Former vice-president of the Brazilian Association of Philanthropic Institutions Against Cancer, Brazilian Cancerology Society. Vice-president of the Antonio Prudente Foundation, maintainer of A.C. Cancer Center (2012 to date).  Around 9000 surgical procedures of medium and large complexity  performed at the A.C. Camargo Cancer Center, from 1974 to 1990, besides others  surgeries at Hospital Sirio -Libanes , Albert Einstein, Oswaldo Cruz and Santa Catarina Hospital. This experience in Surgical Oncology  is centered mainly in colorectal cancer, soft tissue sarcomas, gynecologic tumors, breast cancer and skin cancer.

I was pioneer in introducing in Brazil, on March 2001, the cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic  intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC)  to  treat peritoneal carcinomatosis. I introduced in this country, at the A.C. Camargo Cancer Center, after coming back from MSLKCC, some special limb sparing surgical procedures in patients with large bone tumors and soft tissue sarcomas of the shoulder and pelvic girdle that were at that moment submitted to amputation. I was assistant physician of Prof. Fernando Gentil, at the A.C. Camargo Cancer Canter and in his private clinic for 13 years, until 1989 when he died.

Gentil introduced in early seventies, a conservative surgery for breast cancer, when almost all were in favor of radical mastectomy. I   actively participated performing the majority of these  surgical procedures. When Prof. Fernando Gentil died, he had around 400 cases of conservative surgery performed with oncological , aesthetic and functional gratifying results. Gentil concluded his fellowship in surgical oncology  at  Memorial Hospital and he continued as assistant physician for two years.

To work with Gentil was a great opportunity to learn surgical oncology for me, mainly in colorectal cancer, breast cancer, gynecological tumors, soft tissue sarcomas, skin cancer, melanoma and non melanoma   and some special surgical procedures in bone tumors.  I am honorary member of Minas Gerais State Academy of Medicine. Honorary title received from the couties: Passos (MG), Uberaba (MG) and Aracaju (SE). Awarded with the Pacificador and Mérito Militar Medals by the Brazilian Army.

I am member of the Brazilian Association of the Zebu Creators and volunteer of the SOPREV (an NGO that promotes the preventive oral health of children in the city of Delfinopolis/MG).
