Cairo, Egypt (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
Aiming to introduce international expertise in the field of obesity treatment to Egypt, Dr. Osama Taha partnered with the globally recognized Swedish bariatric center Global Health Partner and inaugurated Cairo’s first international bariatric center. Cairo’s center comes as the tenth Global Health Partner across the world and conforms to Dr. Taha’s ambitions to provide Egyptian patients with the best that international standards have to offer.
In this light, and in addition to the already existing English website http://www.bariatriccenter-eg.com, Dr. Taha developed an Arabic website http://www.overweightegypt.com to act as a supporting tool to all Arabic speaking individuals who are interested in knowing more about obesity and its diverse methods of treatment. “Egyptian patients deserve to have access to the same levels of care and service that are available in Europe. This is why this partnership was established and this is the dream I came back to Egypt years ago to achieve,” said Dr. Osama Taha.
In addition to developing an Arabic version of his website, and aspiring to communicate with as many interested individuals as possible, Dr. Osama Taha also launched activities on several social media channels that can easily be accessed by anyone. Through his Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages, Dr. Taha will open communication channels with patients and create one-on-one interactions that will answer directly to queries and concerns.
“I left Europe and came back to Egypt with one thing in mind; to bring the knowledge that I have learned in the fields of bariatrics and obesity surgeries home. Through this new Global Health Partner center, Swedish expertise, protocols and services are easily accessible to anyone who needs them here,” commented Dr. Taha when asked about his return to Egyptian soil.
The treatments available at the center include medical treatments, surgical treatments and plastic surgery – if needed – after massive weight loss. The center also provides avid follow up with patients, ensuring they complete their treatment programs and are adapting well to their new lifestyles.
“The treatments that are recommended to patients come after thorough examinations and consultations because, with obesity and bariatrics, each case is unique and must be looked upon as a standalone scenario. Generalization and one-size-fits-all solutions don’t work in this field,” said Dr. Taha.
It is noteworthy that the ambitions of Global Health Partner aim to create a world-leading chain of clinics for treating obesity through strong specialization, superior quality and high levels of efficiency. After receiving training as a surgeon at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden, Global Health Partner found Dr. Osama Taha to be an ideal caliber for such an expansion in Egypt, especially with the raising concerns about the increase of obesity in the country and region as a whole.
