It is with great sadness that EPSA heard of the death of Prof Magdy ElBarbary. He passed away this morning.
Magdy ElBarbary, was a pioneer of Pediatric Surgery who over the past sixty years or so used his intellect and generosity to support and develop Pediatric Surgery practice in this country. He was an icon of Pediatric Surgery in this region and will continue to be through his son Prof. Mohamed ElBarbary who will carry on his legacy.
Prof Magdy served as a role model for his colleagues. He was a mentor to all the figures of Pediatric Surgery on the scene right now from academics to clinicians all over. He was a kind and generous man. It is a great loss for the EPSA to someone who has always stood by it in its early days. May he rest in peace.
