A Nigerian medical doctor Oluyinka Olutoye has been appointed as the Surgeon-In-Chief at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Ohio, United States.

“We are tremendously delighted to welcome Dr. Olutoye to Nationwide Children’s Hospital to further elevate the visibility and reputation of one of the best overall children’s surgical programs in the country that, through its clinical care and research, is forging the future of children’s surgery,” said Richard J. Brilli, MD, chief medical officer at Nationwide Children’s.

“Having a world-renowned fetal and pediatric surgeon join our leadership team will further advance Nationwide Children’s commitment to establishing a preeminent fetal surgery program,” Brilli added.

In his role as the Surgeon-In-Chief, Olutoye will lead one of the largest children’s hospital surgery departments in the world.

Olutoye will serve as the primary surgical liaison between Nationwide Children’s and the OSU College of Medicine.
