MedTech Asia is honored to feature Dr. Erivelto Volpi, a globally recognized expert in thyroid and parathyroid diseases, as a key speaker and trainer at our upcoming event.
His pioneering work in minimally invasive thyroid procedures places him at the forefront of medical innovation in endocrine surgery.
Dr. Volpi’s illustrious career in head and neck surgery, particularly focusing on thyroid and parathyroid diseases, has made him a reference point in the medical community. His training at the Hospital das Clínicas of the University of São Paulo, where he spent 30 years, including four years as a medical resident in General Surgery and Head and Neck Surgery, has laid a strong foundation for his expertise.
Dr. Volpi has always been at the cutting edge of minimally invasive treatments. He is one of the pioneers in Brazil for Minimally Invasive Video-Assisted Thyroidectomies (MIVAT), trained by Dr. Paolo Miccoli at the University of Pisa. His commitment to offering the best to his patients led him to train in Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) in Seoul, South Korea, with Prof. Baek, the developer of the RFA technique.
A Leader in Thyroid Ablation
Since his return to Brazil, Dr. Volpi has been one of the first physicians to perform RFA procedures. He has treated patients from all over Brazil and South America, gaining one of the largest experiences in Latin America in this treatment. Today, Dr. Volpi leads a training course in RFA, having already trained numerous medical professionals from Brazil, Latin America, and the USA.
Dr. Volpi’s academic journey is equally impressive. He graduated in Medicine in 1986 from the Faculty of Medical Sciences of Santos and completed his residency in General Surgery and Head and Neck Surgery at the University of São Paulo. His doctoral thesis in 2011 focused on safety in thyroid surgery, particularly on intraoperative neuro-physiological monitoring of the laryngeal nerves.
His professional memberships include the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, the American Head and Neck Society, the International Association of Endocrine Surgery, the American Thyroid Association, and the Latin American Thyroid Society, among others.

Inspiring the Next Generation
Dr. Volpi’s role as an educator and trainer reflects his dedication to shaping the future of endocrine surgery. His hands-on approach in training and his commitment to sharing knowledge make him a much-respected figure in the medical community.
As MedTech Asia prepares to welcome Dr. Erivelto Volpi, we anticipate a gathering enriched by his expertise and insights. His presence underscores our commitment to featuring world-class professionals who are not only leaders in their field but also passionate educators and innovators.
