About Mr Hamouda
I qualified as a medical doctor in 1992, graduating from Ain Shams Medical School, Cairo, Egypt. I undertook a residency programme in general surgery and was appointed to a university lectureship post due to my outstanding academic achievements.
I then successfully applied for post-doctoral sub-speciality training in open competition and was awarded a grant to pursue this. I completed a full SpR training rotation in South West Thames London Deanery. I was awarded a laparoscopic biliary fellowship in Glasgow for a year, which involved advanced laparoscopic interventions including complex laparoscopic cholecystectomies and bile duct explorations.
Following the award of a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training, I successfully interviewed for a six-month advanced bariatric fellowship in a Centre of Bariatric Excellence offering laparoscopic bands, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass.
