Our Practice


Akkary Surgery Center has been serving patients in Morgantown, West Virginia, since 2008, but it’s more than its decade-long history that sets Dr. Ehab Akkary’s practice apart. From its inception, the center has been breaking new ground in Cosmetic and Bariatric treatments while simultaneously establishing innovative standards in personalized patient care.

Unlike other practices, Akkary Surgery Center offers a rare combination of General Surgery using Advanced Laparoscopic Techniques, Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery – all under one convenient roof. As Dr. Akkary explains, “We were the first to do quite a few things in West Virginia.” In fact, he started his practice at an academic institution followed by a community hospital where he and his team were able to achieve the sought-after designation of Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence at both hospitals. Dr. Akkary’s was also the first practice in Central West Virginia to offer gastric balloon procedures.

Given his diverse background, the breadth of his practice should not be surprising. Dr. Akkary has built his practice by building personal relationships with his clients, consistently receiving patient-voted awards for his dedicated and compassionate care. While some surgical practices might focus on high volume, Dr. Akkary carefully limits the number of clients he sees, because he believes in giving each his individualized attention. “When patients come in, they always see me personally. They have my phone number and can reach me directly.”

As of May 2019, Akkary Surgery Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation distinguishes this Office Based Surgery Center from many other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
