In Recent years, bariatric surgery in Egypt has been steadily growing in popularity. Weight loss procedures such as gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, gastric band, and others can help people who are suffering from obesity lose weight by restricting the volume of food the stomach can hold or the amount of calories the body absorbs. It has also been shown to reverse type 2 diabetes and lower the risk of heart disease.
If you are considering bariatric surgery in Egypt, it can be difficult to decide which doctor is right for you. Our annual study aims to make that decision easier by assessing the bariatric surgeons in Egypt based on the following assessment criteria:
- Experience and credentials
- Patient feedback and testimonials
- Patient care and communication
- Post-operative care and follow-ups
1Dr. Fahim Bassiony

An internationally renowned professor with decades of experience behind him. He is currently in charge of laparoscopic training at Cairo University, and at one time was the Head of Laparoscopic and Bariatric Surgery at Cairo University. He is also the President of the Egyptian Society of Laparoscopic Surgery, and Vice President of the Egyptian Society of Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery.
