Arnaldo Trabucco, MD went into the private practice of medicine in the United States in 1987. He did very well in New York, where he began, but decided to leave that city after the tragic events of September 11, 2001, because it no longer felt safe to him.
He has moved several times since then. A Board-certified urologist, Arnaldo Trabucco, MD has practiced in Indiana, Nevada, and Arizona, where his practice began was thriving.
One of the Arizona hospitals with which Arnaldo Trabucco, MD was affiliated was under the guidance of a Chief of Surgery who was not providing appropriate administrative duties, and was about to lose accreditation with the Joint Commission. It was a serious situation. “I was then elected as Chairman of Surgery and was not only able to provide reaccreditation for the hospital through the Joint Commission for JAHCO reaccreditation, but due to the establishment of some very innovative committees I established, the hospital received an award from the USA federal government [that] are now being emulated throughout the United States.”
There was, however, another cause of concern for Arnaldo Trabucco, MD, and it proved to be a breaking point. “I learned the hospital administration was not putting the profits back into patient safety and care, which I am very committed to as a dedicated urologic surgeon. With that in mind, and other personal reasons, I decided to put in my resignation and close my practice in October 2013, and relocate to Italy. Due to the changes currently in the United States with the Obama Administration and the future healthcare delivery system that was in its infantile unstable stage, practicing in the United States in private practice no longer appealed to me.”
Today, Arnaldo Trabucco practice in Italy, and is a Board member of the Società di Medicina e Chirurgia Rigenerativa Polispecialistica.
