Risolo’s expertise is in a broad range of traditional and minimally invasive general surgical procedures, including an extensive experience with gallbladder and hernia surgeries.

He is based at Strong West, part of Strong Memorial Hospital, three days a week for surgeries and patient clinic appointments. The remaining days he is at UR Medicine’s Strong Memorial and the Surgery Center at Sawgrass.

Risolo is a Rochester native. A graduate of Bishop Kearney High School and the University of Rochester, he earned his medical degree from SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse and completed his internship and residency in general surgery at the Lankenau Medical Center in Pennsylvania.
