Arnaldo Trabucco, MD practiced medicine in the United States for nearly thirty years before deciding to relocate to his ancestral homeland of Italy in late 2013.
Arnaldo Trabucco an American-born and trained urologist who has been in private practice since 1987. He took a course at the Columbia University Medical School and received his medical degree from the University of Rome School of Medicine and Surgery. He did residencies in New York, Connecticut, and Nebraska.
“After I completed my chief year of urologic surgery training at the University of Nebraska, I then started my clinical practice in New York City in 1987,” Arnaldo Trabucco MD recalls. “I had a very lucrative practice and was on staff at many institutions … [I] had three offices in Queens and Manhattan. I practiced all forms of general urology that my training provided me and kept abreast with the latest advances in urology.”
But New York City became a monstrously frightening place after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and Arnaldo Trabucco MD decided to take his young family to a safer haven. That turned out to be Columbus, Indiana, in 2003. “I practiced big city urology in a small town and was able to bring much advancement to the state-of-the-art treatment in that arena.”
Arnaldo Trabucco MD relocated several more times in the years ahead, but by 2013 decided that changes to the American health care laws were going to have an adverse affect on the care he was able to provide his patients, so he moved to Italy.
