Alberto Eraldo Colombo

After graduating in 1978 in medicine and surgery at the University of Milan with a score of 110/110 cum laude and a thesis on an innovative hepatological topic, my first professional steps were as a medical officer and then as a ward doctor in several hospitals: della Valsolda, Cittiglio, Ponte di Varese and since 1982 at the Sant 'Anna Hospital in Como.
Professor Gaetano Ideo was then head physician who directed me to devote myself full time to liver disease and gave me the opportunity to earn a master's degree in liver disease at the University of London with Professor Roger Williams.
In 1989 I obtained the specialization in internal medicine at the University of Milan with 70/70 cum laude.
I have published many research works in the hepatology field and since the first years of work I have been a member of AISF and EASL.

In the 90s I attended two advanced abdominal ultrasound courses at the University of Modena which allowed me in the following years

to personally carry out periodic checks of cirrhotic patients for disease complications and for the early diagnosis of hepatocellular cancer.
I have also dealt with liver cancer therapy with the multidisciplinary development it has had over the years.

Since 2000 I have been involved in clinical nutrition with the advancing metabolic problems which are now the prevalent cause of liver disease.
I have experienced the entire history of hepatitis C virus infection firsthand, from when the virus was not yet known to when it has now been eradicated with the new treatments. In conclusion, my skills are therefore linked to more than thirty years of experience in the field of hepatology, clinical nutrition and ultrasound practice.
