Famous surgeon Dr Magdi Yacoub has paid tribute to President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi for  what he said was his strong support for the development of health and education services in Egypt.

On the sidelines of a visit to Washington, the British-Egyptian cardiothoracic told MENA that the president encourages all efforts to contribute to treating Egyptian patients suffering from different diseases, particularly heart-related diseases, and backing scientific research on that score.

The renowned surgeon spoke of the great efforts exerted made by the president to upgrade the national educational system, which is fundamental to realise development and growth and transform the life of Egyptians for the better.

Yacoub also said that Egypt has many talented people, particularly young physicians and researchers, who should be given the opportunity to become successful, to serve Egyptian society.

The famous surgeon’s charitable foundation runs a heart centre in Aswan.

He added that the new centre established in Egypt to treat heart diseases will contribute to curing larger numbers of patients through the training of well-chosen young physicians and medical staff.
