Medstars in their Eyes | Mr Fausto Palazzo | Consultant Endocrine Surgeon in London

Mr Fausto Palazzo

Medstars met with one of the UK’s leading endocrine surgeons, Mr Fausto Palazzo, at the Princess Grace Hospital in London.

Fausto has personally performed over 4000 endocrine surgery operations including over 350 thyroidectomies, parathyroidectomies and adrenalectomies in 2017 alone. Fausto advocates sub specialisation and promotes high volume surgeons to improve outcomes and reduce the risk of complications.

Fausto also lectures nationally and internationally and has published over 100 peer reviewed scientific papers on all aspects of endocrine surgery – how he finds the time we don’t know! What we do know is that Fausto is a highly-regarded international endocrine surgeon.

My friends and family describe me as…

‘Honest, inquisitive, reliable and a pain!’

If I wasn’t a consultant endocrine surgeon, I would be…

‘A plastic surgeon so that I could get to know my wife!’ Maybe Fausto should have said comedian instead?

My favourite element of the job is…

‘When the patient goes home feeling well and with no problems.’

My greatest professional accomplishment has to be…

‘Whatever happens next.’

My hero/heroine is…

‘Jimi Hendrix – he is proof that nothing succeeds like practice and perseverance.’

I believe one thing everyone should do in their life is…

‘To excel in something, anything at least once.’

If I was stranded on a desert island, my belonging of choice would be…

‘A bicycle, something that combines function and pleasure.’

I would love to visit…

‘India and Israel.’

The best piece of advice I have been given is…

‘Only a fool doesn’t change his mind.’

The song that makes me happy is…

‘Pulp – Something Changed.’
