Abbas El-Sayed Abbas, MD

Chief of Thoracic Surgery, Lifespan, and Chief of Thoracic Oncology, Lifespan Cancer Institute

Abbas El-Sayed Abbas, MD, an internationally recognized expert in thoracic surgery, is renowned for his minimally invasive surgical skills and experience in translational and clinical research oncology. He is the chief of thoracic oncology at the Lifespan Cancer Institute and the chief of thoracic surgery with both The Warren Alpert School of Medicine at Brown University and Brown Surgical Associates.

He was previously the system thoracic surgeon-in-chief and system director of the Foregut Disease Programs and Thoracic Oncology programs with Temple University Health System in Philadelphia. He earned a medical degree, with honors, at the Ain-Shams University School of Medicine in Cairo, Egypt. He completed his internship and residency at the University of Pennsylvania along with a postdoctoral research fellowship in gene therapy for thoracic malignancies. Additionally, he completed a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science, Rochester, Minnesota and later pursued postdoctoral research in mechanical cardiac support at Penn State University.
