About

Dr. Manoel Galvao Neto graduated with a degree in Medicine at Bahiana School of Medicine, Bahia, Brazil, in 1989. From 1998 to 2000, he was the Coordinator of the Experimental Surgery Research Group. Dr. Galvao is inspired by the work of his father, Dr. Manoel Galvao Filho—a surgeon who had pioneered laparoscopic surgery in Brazil—and by his beloved mother, Stella—a leading operating room nurse who delineated his character, behavior, and ethics. Dr. Galvao is a board-certified specialist in Digestive Surgery by the Brazilian College of Digestive Surgery (CBCD), in Gastroenterology by the Brazilian Federation of Gastroenterology (FBG), and in Digestive Endoscopy by the Brazilian Society of Digestive Endoscopy (SOBED). He is one of only a few clinicians that have all three of these board certifications. In 2002, Dr. Galvao joined Dr. Almino Ramos and Dr. Manoela Galvao at the Gastro Obeso Center as the scientific coordinator and chief endoscopist. He developed training models for laparoscopic bariatric surgery and multidisciplinary teams that became the field’s gold standard. 

Together with Dr. Josemberg Campos from Recife, Brazil, Dr. Galvao was involved in creating and developing “Bariatric Endoscopy.” In this new field, Dr. Galvao was the first to treat bariatric surgery complications using endoluminal approaches. He was among the first to insert an intragastric balloon in 2001. In 2004, Dr. Galvao performed the early endoscopic gastric band removal in South America and the first air-filled intragastric balloon implants in 2006. Dr. Galvao’s career is noteworthy for his active participation, often as lead endoscopist, on several “first in human trials,” such as the first endoscopic endoluminal duodenal-jejunal bypass. He now serves as a proctor for trials in several countries. From 2006 to 2008, Drs. Galvao and Ramos performed the first Natural Orifice Transluminal Surgery (NOTES) research in animals in Brazil. Shortly after that, they performed and then published the second case in the world of a NOTES transgastric cholecystectomy. Furthermore, they also published the most extensive human transvaginal cholecystectomy series and the first human transvaginal sleeve gastrectomy procedure performed. From 2008 to 2010, the group focused on laparoscopic metabolic surgery, resulting in several more publications.

In 2011, Dr. Galvao participated as an investigator and proctor in developing the first out of the US series using endoscopic suturing to revise Roux-en-Y gastric bypasses (RYGB). In 2013, Dr. Galvao helped develop (as an investigator and proctor) the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG). He participated in its first-in-human series in Panama and with Dr. Lopez Nava in the initial European series. Dr. Galvao serves as a journal reviewer for Obesity Surgery, Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases (SOARD), Surgical Laparoscopy, Endoscopic Percutaneous Technologies, and Bariatric Times and he has reviewed hundreds of manuscripts. 

Dr. Galvao is very proud that his career’s work resulted in thousands of patients treated by him or someone he trained benefited from less invasive options instead of conventional surgical intervention. Additionally, it led to his reputation as one of the most skilled surgical endoscopists in the world. He has been a course director and faculty member in Bariatric Endoscopy courses for a multitude of medical and surgical societies including the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity (IFSO), American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), and Association of Bariatric Endoscopy, as well as the Brazilian societies of endoscopy and bariatric surgery. 

Dr. Galvao is also an active member of several medical societies. In 2016, he was appointed as an Advisory Board Member of ABE. In 2017, he was appointed as the Chairman of the Bariatric Endoscopy Committee of IFSO and the Chairman of the Bariatric Endoscopy Nucleus of the Brazilian Society of Endoscopy—SOBED and the Chairman of the Bariatric Endoscopy Nucleus of the Brazilian Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (SBCBM). In 2015, Dr. Galvao was awarded the “Surgical Innovator Award” by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. It also marked the first time it was awarded to a non-American.

Dr. Galvao Neto states that he does not have a job, but he has a hobby. His passion for his “hobby” is felt across his teaching. The goal to always achieve a new frontier in bariatric endoscopy. He truly believes that “sharing is learning,” and we should always strive “for the greater good.” To achieve his goals, he has full support of his wife, Sandra, and his two beautiful sons, Bernardo and Theo, of which he is a proud father to both of them.

We have passed the most rigorous accreditations and now display a List of Awards and Designations of Quality bestowed upon the Hospital and the Surgeons. In order for the Obesity Control Center to be awarded the various distinctions and designations by third party quality accreditation organizations, we had to go through rigorous year-long reviews that examined every aspect of our practice, including the staff, surgeons, and facilities. We are one of only a few international hospitals to be awarded these designations. We are fully accredited as a Center of Excellence in Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery and our Surgeons have been designated Surgeons of Excellence in Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery, and have also obtained the Golden Seal awarded by the Joint Commission International that signifies that we have met the highest standards in patient safety and quality available in healthcare.
