About

Bio

I am a surgeon. I do practice in Jordan, trained in General & Laparoscopic (keyhole) Digestive & Bariatric (Obesity) surgery in the United States. My passion is tackling the disease: "Obesity" and all the stigma & metabolic diseases that comes with it. I also have a vast experience Digestive tract diseases and cancers including: stomach, colon & pancreas cancer. I am part of the American Society of Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery (ASMBS) and the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity (IFSO). I am currently the Chair of the Communication Committee of the Middle East and North Africa Chapter (MENAC). I am married to the greatest wife, with three lovely boys. My hope is be able to help anyone attain a healthier life in this global community.
