Alexandria University Pediatric Surgery Department

History
Alexandria Pediatric Surgery Department was founded in 1958 under the leadership of Professor Dr. El Sayed El Akkary (1921-1986), who is sincerely considered to be the “god father” for this department.

It was a dream that came true to be a tertiary referral center, providing adequate surgical service for neonates and children in four governates: Alexandria, Beheira, Matrouh and Kafr El Sheikh, thus, to be the main Pediatric Surgical center in the North Coast Region. Since its establishment, the department used to be located in the Main Hospital.

In 1973, and after the foundation of Alexandria University Children Hospital (AUCH) in El Shatby, most of the services had been transferred to its current, perfectly located, hospital with a fascinating view showing the Mediterranean Sea and the popularly known Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Since then, the Department working load is working in parallel in both hospitals.
