Born and raised in the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro, he graduated in medicine from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) in 2000, and did two residencies. The first in general surgery at Hosp. de Ipanema and the second in Urology at Hosp. State of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ).
Six years later, focused on innovation and mastering the best techniques to treat his patients, he specialized in robotic surgery in Bordeaux, France. Returning to Brazil, he dedicated himself to clinical and surgical urology. In parallel, he served as an instructor of robotic surgery by the IRCAD Institute serving doctors from the Institute National des Sciences Appliquees de Strasbourg, France, and Hospital de Câncer de Barretos (SP).
In 2016, he was invited to take over the Department of Minimally Invasive Surgery in the Brazilian Society of Urology (SBU), where he would hold several positions until he was led to the treasury of the entity.
The work in the area of health management became effective when he was invited, in 2017, to the direction of the Federal Hospital of the State Servers. Two years later, the opportunity arose to command one of the units of Rede D'Or in Rio de Janeiro.
The experience opened new professional possibilities, stimulating him to take a post-graduate course in Hospital Management at the Albert Einstein Hospital in São Paulo.
Passionate about health, today Romolo divides his time between the Brazilian Society of Urology, Hospital Management at Rede D'Or, and medical practice with a focus on oncology.
