Beebe doc named to state council for college of surgeons

February 5, 2024

Beebe Healthcare announced bariatric surgeon Christopher Manieri, DO, has been appointed to serve as a council member for the Delaware Chapter of the American College of Surgeons.

The Delaware chapter aims to unit surgical specialties across the state, with focus on promoting and inspiring the highest standards of care within the surgical community through education and mentorship. Through these efforts, the chapter’s vision is to attract, train and retain the highest-quality surgeons in the country, who have the potential to develop into local and national leaders.

“Surgical education, safety and quality improvement are important pieces of my work as a general surgeon,” said Manieri. “My involvement as a council member for the Delaware Chapter of the American College of Surgeons will allow me to apply those priorities even more broadly, and in ways that can impact the way surgery is practiced not only a Beebe, but across the State of Delaware. I am proud to be appointed to this position and grateful for the opportunity to represent Beebe in such a positive way.”

Manieri practices at the Beebe Center for Weight Loss Surgery in Georgetown. In addition to providing high-quality clinical care for patients before, during and following weight loss surgery, Manieri is known as a physician who works to build meaningful relationships and bond with his patients throughout their journey of care.

“The fact that Dr. Manieri has been elected to the council of the Delaware Chapter of the American College of Surgeons gives me great pride, as he is a member of Beebe Medical Group, said Anthony Buonanno, MD, chief medical officer, Beebe Medical Group. “He represents our skill and commitment to the Sussex County community and is an accomplished surgeon who loved and respected by his patients.”

Manieri is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. His post-graduate clinical training began at ChristianaCare Health System in Newark, where he pursued a clinical rotation internship, before later completing a general surgical residency. Manieri’s clinical training concluded with a bariatric and minimally invasive surgical fellowship at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital in Fairfax, Va.

Manieri is also a member of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons.
