My name is Ahmed Ragheb. I am Assistant Professor of Urology and Consultant of Andrology at the Department of Urology, Beni-Suef University, Egypt. I’m also Director of the Andrology Unit at Bedayet Hayah Fertility and IVF Hospital and Founder and Director of HOWA Clinics for Integrated Men’s Health in Cairo. I may be considered one of the renowned experts specializing in men’s health, erectile dysfunction, hypogonadism, Peyronie’s disease, prosthetic urology surgery, male infertility, and assisted reproduction in the MENA region, based in Cairo.
After receiving my doctorate in Urology, I underwent a 2-year fellowship in Male Infertility and Andrology in the Urology Department of the Glickman Kidney and Urology Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio. I have also received the MJCSM Board Certification in sexual medicine, which has earned me the title of Fellow of the European Committee of Sexual Medicine.
Afterward, I was able to complete the ESSM Penile Implant and Prosthetic Urology Fellowship at the Center of Excellence for Prosthetic Urology at the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein in Kiel, Germany.
I happen to serve on numerous national and international society committees as both Member and Co-Chair. With the ESSM I serve as member of the Educational Committee and have served as member of the Social Media Task Force. I am also Co-Chair of the Communication Committee of the MESSM. I also represent Egypt as member of the New European Surgical Academy. I am also a consultant and certified trainer for the top penile implant manufacturers.
As an academic, I dedicate quality time to fulfill my avid interest in clinical research concerning sexual medicine and male fertility. I have contributed to more than 50 peer-reviewed publications, educational guidelines, surgical videos, and book chapters including “Andrology Laboratory Manual” and “Penile Implant Surgery”. I have also been invited as a visiting professor, speaker, and chair at multiple national and international venues, and have received multiple national and international awards and recognitions, including the Risman Research Award/Grant in 2008, CTSC award (NIH/NCRR funded) in 2009, ISSM scholarship for the ESSM School of Sexual Medicine in 2017, David Ralph Award for Best Oral Presentation in 2019 and Best Abstract-Clinical SMSNA Prize in 2021.
All this considered, I ask for the MESSM’s kind consideration of myself to be worthy of the position of Ordinary Director. I believe this type of affiliation will be an exceptional opportunity for me to channel my humble knowledge and experience, in the field, in consolidating the main mission of the MESSM. In close collaboration with the president, general secretary, treasurer, and my fellow MESSM colleagues, together we will work to enhance the standards of both practice and science of sexual medicine among healthcare givers as well as raise the level of sexual health awareness among the public, especially in a region thirsty for high-class knowledge and patient care. I aspire the influence of MESSM on our communities to be no less than that of the other sexual medicine societies around the world.
