Dr. Magdy Giurgius, a board-certified surgeon at Ozarks Medical Center
who specializes in general surgery, wound care, balloon weight loss surgery,
and bariatric surgery was inducted as a Fellow into the American College
of Surgeons (ACS).
The ACS is an association of surgeons that promotes high standards for
surgical education and practice. Dr. Giurgius was among over 1800 fellows
initiated at this year’s Convocation Ceremony on October 22 in San
Becoming a Fellow, designated as FACS after a surgeon’s name, means
that a surgeon’s “education and training, professional qualifications,
surgical competence, and ethical conduct have passed a rigorous evaluation,
and have been found to be consistent with the high standards established
and demanded by [the ACS],” according to the ACS.
