British Surgeon Professor Nadey S. Hakim Unanimously Appointed as The First Max Thorek Professor of Surgery by Global Governance of the International College of Surgeons
Professor Nadey S. Hakim, a leading British Surgeon, has been unanimously appointed as The Max Thorek Professor of Surgery, the first surgeon to be officially designated with this prestigious title in the 74 year history of the International College of Surgeons, a global entity with active, practicing members in over 100 countries of the World. This singular honor was officially bestowed on Professor Hakim on December 4, 2008, at the International College of Surgeons World Congress in Vienna, Austria, with attendees from over 55 countries.
Two years ago, the global governance of the International College of Surgeons developed the noble thought that an endowed Chair of Surgery in the name of the founder of the International College of Surgeons, Dr. Max Thorek, should be established to foster the memory of Dr. Max Thorek and established to recognize outstanding surgeons, teachers, and humanitarians in the International College of Surgeons. A search was initiated and nominations called for, and following two years of considerations and deliberations, Professor Nadey S. Hakim was selected for this distinctive honor, an honor to be awarded for exceptional academic achievements, personal and professional conduct, well beyond the usual, normal, and customary conduct, to an individual of distinction working on the frontiers of knowledge.
Professor Nadey S. Hakim has the spirit of Dr. Max Thorek, in that Professor Hakim is a surgeon of the World, who travels widely, who is an inspiration to young surgeons who wish to learn and progress in their surgical professions. Professor Hakim is a humanitarian who involves himself in the significant debates of the time pertaining to key global issues, such as organ transplantation and the severe problem of shortage of organs. He has authored over 18 textbooks and is Editor in Chief of International Surgery.
Professor Nadey S. Hakim is currently Consultant Surgeon and Surgical Director of the Transplant Unit at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London. For additional information visit https://www.icsglobal.org.
