Scientific and Research Interests
Dr. Buffi’s major areas of research include the most common urological issues such as prostate, bladder and kidney tumors. The urethral pathology with particular interest in the pieloureteral joint stenosis. In particular, he has developed specific interest in all types of minimally-invasive surgery, both laparoscopic and robotic.
