One of his primary interests throughout his professional career has been the development of obstetrics and gynecologic surgical instrumentation, such as the Q-Tip diagnostic device for stress urinary incontinence (developed in the early 1970's); the Pelosi uterine manipulator and laparoscopic illuminator; various devices for urogynecologic and vaginal surgery; his pioneer work with the soft vacuum extractor in vaginal and abdominal delivery and with the use of uterine absorbable staple devices for cesarean section; and a new soft, self-retaining abdominal retractor for cesarean sections. More recently, due to his interest in liposuction, he and Marco Pelosi III, MD developed new liposuction instrumentation and a liposuction operating table.
Dr. Pelosi is recognized as the leading expert in laparoscopic surgery using the single umbilical puncture approach and his expertise as a vaginal surgeon is also widely recognized.

Ovarian mucinous cystadenoma), the largest uterus removed by vaginal hysterectomy (2003 grams) and the largest uterus removed by laparoscopic assisted hysterectomy (3050 grams). Together they have introduced four new simplified techniques: cesarean section, vaginal hysterectomy for the difficult hysterectomy, cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accreta-percreta, and a minilaparotomy system for the performance of hysterectomy, myomectomy, and other pelvic surgery. In 1996 they founded the One Kilo Club (www.onekiloclub.org), an exclusive international association of pelvic surgeons of proven caliber committed to furthering the technical horizons of minimally invasive surgery and who have demonstrated that commitment by the removal of a uterus weighing one kilogram or greater without resorting to laparotomy.
