It is with great sadness that EPSA heard of the death of Prof Adel Lotfy. He passed away this morning.
Adel Lotfy, who has died at the age of 91, was a successful Professor who over the past sixty years or so used his intellect and generosity to support and develop Pediatric Surgery practice in this country and abroad. He created the Pediatric Surgery department at Cairo University and has long fought for it to be a beacon for Pediatric Surgery in the region.
Prof Lotfy served as a role model for his colleagues. Until, last month showing up at every Surgery exam and showing insight to his students. Prof. Lotfy made sure he attended every conference and workshop (his photo at latest EPSA conference in Cairo). His dedication to details and science are his hallmarks.
