Professional statement

Professor Francesco Rubino is a leading, internationally-renowned bariatric surgeon and a pioneer in the field of metabolic weight loss treatment and surgery, based in London.

Originally, Professor Rubino trained in Rome, Italy, at the Catholic University Hospital doing his residence in general surgery and receiving his MD. His surgery training was furthered during his Fellowship in laproscopic and minimally invasive surgery at The European Institute of Telesurgery in Strasbourg, France, Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. Naturally, Professor Rubino became Chief of Gastroinestinal Metabolic Surgery and Director of the Diabetes Surgery Centre at Weill Cornell Medical College. At the same time, he was an attending surgeon at New York Presbytarian Hospital in New York. Not too long after in 2013, he was appointed to King's College Hospital as a Professor of Metabolic Surgery; it was the first of its kind, making him an international ground-breaker in the field.

Since then, he has continued to lead his field with novel procedures and advancing the concept of bariatric surgery. Professor Rubino has transformed bariatrics from simply weight-loss therapy to a surgical treatment for multiple metabolic conditions. In particular, he did a study in 2006 that resulted in positive results for type II diabetes. Pioneering the world of bariatrics, Professor Rubino has gone around the world attending various conferences, holding posts a memberships, publishing more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific journals, receiving innumerable prizes, and even organising his own Diabetes Surgery Summit which was supported internationally. Without a doubt, he has become a reference in his field.

Representing the impact of his expertise, one of Professor Rubino's patients, Jenni Murray, authored a memoir, Fat Cow, Fat Chance, about her journey through weight loss. Murray struggled throughout her life with the idea of weight, obesity, and weight loss. Once she found Professor Rubino, her life was forever changed and, more importantly, saved.
