Dr Marius Nedelcu
A native of Romania, Dr. Nedelcu received his medical degree from “Carol Davila” University in Bucharest. Since university, his uncle (dr. Cotirlet) insufflated in him the “virus” of digestive surgery. So, in 2007, after achieving the 4th position in the national residency exam, he began the residency training.
The interest for bariatric surgery took birth during the first two years, working with Prof Iordache and Prof Copaescu. After his transfer inFrancehe continued to extend his bariatric knowledge under the wings of Dr. David Lechaux, inBrittany.
A hard-working energetic character coupled with a wide flexibility brought him the appreciation of Prof. David Nocca, who gave him the opportunity to perform his first few bariatric procedures and became his mentor.
In September 2010 he passed the border in Suisse to work in Geneva. “Bored” by the Suisse surgical system he discovered the Facebook and International Bariatric Club, presided by Dr. Tom Rogula. Time by time the IBC started to occupy an important part in his professional activity and training.
In 2011 Prof Fabre and Prof Nocca regain Dr Nedelcu in Montpellier showing him a lot of secrets for bariatrics and laparoscopy.
During all this time the Europe wasn’t large enough for him, he had several presentation in USA to SAGES and ACS where in 2011 he received the price of the Most Outstanding Video. Always trying to improve himself in June 2010 he achieved the ECFMG certificate.
Now he is preparing the end of his residency training having the same future probably as IBC marked by some incertitude but with a lot of hope and projects.
