619px-ommaya_01Pakistani-American Muslim neurosurgeon Ayub Khan Ommaya (1930 – 2008) was educated at Oxford in England. All of his grandchildren have British first names. He invented the concept of implanting a reservoir under the scalp of someone with brain cancer (the reservoir could hold chemotherapy drugs or morphine to kill pain, and release them into the fluid of the brain.


I assume that Iranian-American Pardis Sabeti (1975 – ), like her father, is a Bahá’í, not a Muslim. In Florida she attended Trinity College Preparatory school, which was founded by a Christian clergyman.

She helped to control the Ebola outbreak of 2014 by her pioneering use of genetic sequencing to track and monitor the virus.


Iranian-American Gholam A. Peyman (1940? – ) obtained his medical degree in Germany. In the United States he invented LASIK laser eye surgery. I presume he is a Shia Muslim.

Mehmet Oz (1960 – ) is a Turkish-American professor of cardiac surgery. His religious beliefs are a mystical form of Islam similar to Sufism.
His popular Dr. Oz television show, on which he sells diet pills and a face wrinkle remover, has on 3 occasions won the silver flying pig award (which is given to people who make pseudo-scientific claims so unlikely to be true that it will only happen “when pigs fly”).

Muhammad B. Yunus (1943 – ) received his medical training in Bangladesh, and his residency in Massachusetts.
He wrote peer-reviewed journal articles about fibromyalgia, which has no known cause, no known cure, no symptoms except that American women complain of pain. He was one of the first medical doctors to claim the disease is not psychosomatic.

Azizul Haque (1945? – ), who obtained his medical education in Japan and the United States, is a Hanafi Sunni professor at a medical school in the United States who does research on how cancer cells evade the immune system.

Nizam Peerwan (1950? – ) received his medical degree at the American University of Beirut Lebanon, and did his residency in pathology in Dallas Texas. He was the chief medical examiner for Tarrant County, Texas, and supervised autopsies of victims of the 1993 Branch Davidian / ATF incident in Waco. Most say he was chosen rather than more experienced medical examination experts because his rural county was far away from the site of the incident in Waco, and he had no connection to either the Branch Dravidians  (a controversial Christian sect) or the ATF (a government agency that confiscates illegally-owned military-style weapons).  

A believer in conspiracy theories accused government officials of putting Nizam Peerwani in charge of the autopsies because Nizam Peerwani had a reputation of being incompetent and therefore would not discover evidence of wrongdoing by the ATF bureau of the federal government.
Peerwani has written about other incidents of Christians killing people, but is silent about incidents when Muslims killed people.

A Christian named Ferid Murad was the 1998 Albanian-American winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. He was raised as a Christian but his father was an Albanian Muslim.
