Gebrine El Khoury

Gebrine El Khoury started medical school at the University Catholic of Louvain in 1977 and finished in 1984 (cum Maxima Laude).  He joined, in September 1991, the Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc, Brussels, as Associated Professor in the Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery – Catholic University of Louvain.  Since 2004, he is head of the Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery Department. Gebrine is recognised as a pioneer in aortic valve repair. He and his team run what has become a key centre in the treatment of valve disease.  The centre is now considered a true authority on cardiac surgery, as illustrated by its many daily visitors, its active involvement in high-level international conferences (live surgery, lectures, postgraduate courses, etc.) and the organisation of three international meetings each year.
