Dr. Camuzzi split time between private practices and St. Petersburg General Hospital. His son, Marco, is also a urologist in St. Petersburg.

A colleague recalled Dr. Camuzzi as a local innovator in his field.

"He was always bringing new technology to town," said Sean Herron, MD. "He was the first person who would go out and try something."
