Get to know Obstetrician-Gynecologist Hazem Bassam Kanaan, who serves patients in McAllen, Texas.

A determined obstetrician-gynecologist, Dr. Kanaan is specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) and Obesity Medicine. His commitment to improving the health of his community prompted him to open his clinic, All Women Medical Clinic, in October 2017. Alongside this practice, he established RGV Medical Weight Loss, focusing on addressing weight-related issues and promoting healthier lifestyles. 

Back in the early days of his academic career, he completed an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at Kennesaw State University and graduated with Cum-Laude Honors in 2005. Furthermore he pursued a medical degree at the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, where he graduated with honors in 2009. His dedication to women’s health and reproductive care led him to complete his OB/GYN training at Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, by 2013.

In addition to his OB/GYN expertise, Dr. Kanaan has gone above and beyond to expand his knowledge and skills. He pursued a fellowship in obesity and metabolic disease management. This additional qualification allows him to provide comprehensive care not only to women but also to men and pediatric patients struggling with obesity.

Dedicated to clinical excellence, the doctor is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG). The mission of the ABOG is to define specialty standards, certify obstetricians and gynecologists, and facilitate continuous learning to advance knowledge, practice, and professionalism in women’s health.

Apart from his medical career, he has a keen interest in politics and has been involved in various campaigns. He believes that making a real impact and bringing about positive change often requires access to the legislative process, which can influence the lives of many people simultaneously.

Obstetrics and gynecology (OB-GYN) is the medical specialty that encompasses the two subspecialties of obstetrics (covering pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period) and gynecology (covering the health of the female reproductive system – vagina, uterus, ovaries, and breasts).

Among his most notable achievements, Dr. Kanaan has been the recipient of the “Teaching Resident of the Year Award” three times during his four-year residency training.
