ILMA extends its congratulations to Lebanese Professor Ayoubi for his outstanding accomplishments.
Professor Jean-Marc Ayoubi deserves heartfelt congratulations for being bestowed with the prestigious honor of Commander of the National Order of Merit. This distinguished recognition was presented by Mr. Sébastien Lecornu, the Minister of the Armed Forces, two days ago. It is truly a magnificent decoration befitting an exceptional physician of remarkable caliber.
Professor Jean-Marc Ayoubi is a French obstetrician-gynecologist, university professor at the Faculty of Medicine at Paris, and head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine at Foch Hospital.
He completed his schooling in Toulouse after a stint in the town of Sarlat in Dordogne. After studying medicine in the "pink city" of Toulouse, he successfully passed the internship exams in Reims, Paris (top scorer), and Toulouse. He chose to specialize in gynecological surgery and obstetrics in Toulouse. At the end of his internship, he obtained his general surgery and obstetrics-gynecology degrees in 1994. Professor Ayoubi was appointed as a University Professor and Hospital Practitioner in 2003, first at the University Hospital of Toulouse and then at the University Hospital of Paris. Since 2007, he has been the Head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Foch Hospital.
He is renowned, primarily, for overseeing the first successful uterus transplantation in France in 2019. Recognized for his expertise in gynecological surgery and particularly for his application of robotic surgery technologies in this field, he has contributed, in collaboration with Professor Brännström, to the development of this technique for uterine transplantation.
In addition to working alongside Professor René Frydman at Foch Hospital in Suresnes (who was responsible for the first successful "test-tube baby" in France in 1982), Professor Ayoubi is also recognized for his expertise in reproductive medicine and the treatment of infertility.
