I earned my medical degree, finshed my residnecy in 2004 and then  I completed several fellowship programs: Advanced Reconstructive spinal surgery at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, and Adult Scoliosis and Trauma fellowships at the Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon. AO trauma fellowship in Switzerland and 2years research fellowship at Johns Hopkins.

Currently, I am the founder and owner of EGYPTIAN SPINE CLINIC, located in Centralia and Mt Vernon, Illinois. I am also an attending and lecturer of orthopedic and spine surgey in an academic institution in Egypt with more than 15 years of experience in orthopedics and complex spine surgery   

My main areas of clinical expertise include spine deformities and scoliosis, degenerative spine disorders, Spine infection, spine tumors and disc arthroplasty. 

My research interests include the clinical and functional outcomes of spine surgery with a special focus on adult deformity surgery. He also focuses on the biomechanical testing and evaluation of different fixation devices and techniques in the adult spine.

I am a member of many prestigious societies including the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons “AAOS”, Scoliosis Research Society “SRS” and North america spine society "NASS". Further, I have presented my research at society meetings, published in leading peer-reviewed publications, and have contributed to textbook chapters and educational programs in different media.
