About: 

Marco B. Zoccali is a minimally invasive surgeon with extensive training in the treatment of the broad range of colorectal diseases including IBD, colon and rectal cancers, and benign colorectal diseases.  

He received his medical degree at the Catholic University in Rome, Italy where he also completed his surgical training. He then came to the USA where he did a Minimally Invasive Gastrointestinal Surgery Fellowship at the University of Chicago followed by a surgical residency at Weill Cornell Medical Center. He then completed his Colon and Rectal Surgery Fellowship at the University of Chicago.

Although committed to managing the entire spectrum of pathologies that can affect the lower intestinal tract, his personal interest lies mostly in minimally invasive approaches to colorectal conditions – including the robotic platform – and the management of inflammatory bowel diseases.

Beyond his clinical practice, Dr. Zoccali is also a prolific researcher. He has published more than 40 articles in major surgical journals including The Journal of The American College of Surgeons, The British Journal of Surgery and Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and has contributed to several book chapters.
