Dr. Marius Nedelcu

Originaly from Romania, my interest for bariatric surgery goes back to my last year of university (2006), when I spent a month in Strasbourg to attend my first course in bariatric course. After a short stay in the US (2008), where I passed all my exams (ECFMG certificate), I decided for family reasons to come back in France. I expanded my experience in bariatrics under the mentorship of Professor David Nocca (2010 - 2012) and doctor Patrick Noel (2013).
They gave me the opportunity to perform my first bariatric procedures as a resident, and they also encouraged my scientific work, with Professor Michel Gagner. In 2022, I have more than 100 articles published on bariatric surgery. Consequently, I was included in the editorial board of SOARD and in June 2016, I received the "Certificate of exceptional contribution".
In 2013, I became "Chef de Clinique" at the University of Strasbourg and since 2017, I have started my activity in private practice in the South of France to the "Centre Chirurgical de l'Obesité" in Marseille and Toulon.
In 2022, I was the president of young chapter of SOFFCO (French Bariatric Society) more than ten years back, I joined ICYLS improving my laparoscopic knowledge and having the opportunity to meet a lot of friends and great mentors.
I am happy to embrass the challenge to become President of ICYLS and to continue the great work of our dear Past President and my great friend,
