Dr. Hazem A. Elariny, MD, PhD, FACS, is a pioneering figure in the field of Bariatric Surgery. As the founder of the Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure as an independent stand-alone bariatric surgery, Dr. Elariny performed the world's first Sleeve Gastrectomy in 2000 at Inova Fairfax Hospital. His dedication to improving patient outcomes has led him to perform thousands of these procedures, establishing Sleeve Gastrectomy as the most widely accepted bariatric surgery globally. This procedure is now three times more commonly performed than gastric bypass, thirty times more common than the duodenal switch, and 150 times more common than SADI.Beyond his groundbreaking work with the Sleeve Gastrectomy, Dr. Elariny has a distinguished record as the first surgeon to perform several other laparoscopic procedures in the Greater Washington, DC Metropolitan, Northern Virginia, and Southern Maryland areas. Since 1999, he has led the way in Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Duodenal Switch for morbid
obesity, Gastrectomy for cancer, Appendectomy, Nissen Fundoplication, and numerous other laparoscopic surgeries. His expertise and precision in minimally invasive techniques have resulted in exceptional patient outcomes and high levels of patient satisfaction. Notably, Dr. Elariny performs the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy with only three small incisions, ensuring minimal invasiveness and quicker recovery times.In addition to his contributions to bariatric surgery, Dr. Elariny is an accomplished Cosmetic Surgeon. He has performed over 1,000 cosmetic procedures, including liposuction and excisional cosmetic surgeries.
