Sherif Emil MD, CM

My research focuses on optimizing outcomes of a number of common pediatric surgical diseases and exploring innovations in the treatment of chest wall anomalies. I am also initiating a large research effort in enhanced recovery after surgery, patient-reported outcomes, and patient-centred care and partnerships. I am interested in elevating the quality of pediatric surgical research through engaging in prospective studies, clinical trials, and multicentre research. I currently serve as Chair of the Canadian Consortium for Research in Pediatric Surgery (CanCORPS), a consortium of 15 pediatric surgical centres across Canada researching together ways to minimize variability in care and optimize patient outcomes through collaboration and innovation. Finally, I am heavily involved in global surgery and interested in studying ways of increasing pediatric surgical capacity in low resource settings.
