One great lesson I have learned from our experience starting OsteoEgypt, that it is not easy to establish a new model within a traditional community

Dr. Hesham Khalil, Founder of OsteoEgypt

Where It All Began

I was born and raised in Cairo/ Egypt for the first 22 years of my life. My parents are Egyptian, so I was bilingual from birth speaking Arabic and English. 

I was fortunate to be able to travel to many different countries and attend an international school that emphasized diversity, tolerance and acceptance of others. 

Why Osteopathic Medicine

As far back as I can remember I have always wanted to help and comfort others, so it was no surprise when I decided to pursue a career in Physical therapy then Osteopathic Medicine later.

I am an active member of the World Osteopathic Health Organization, and The Chicago Cranial Study Group since 2008. I have founded the Egyptian Osteopathic Society, which impacted Curriculum Changes in some Egyptian university to include the Global Osteopathic thinking as a part of Diagnosis and treatment of Common Somatic Dysfunctions.
