The UAE healthcare sector is growing and proving itself among the best in the world by adopting the latest technologies for patient wellbeing.
Gargash Hospital, the UAE’s first female Emirati-owned, multi-specialty hospital has announced its partnership with Meitra Hospital, owned by KEF Holdings, to establish a Center of Excellence for Bone and Joint in the UAE.
The partnership witnessed a signing ceremony between Ghada Sawalmah, CEO Gargash Hospital and Faizal E Kottikollon, Chairman of KEF Holdings.
As part of the partnership, Gargash Hospital will now expand the way in Orthopedics with cutting-edge technology, equipped with the CORI Robotics Surgical System, the most advanced and efficient, real-intelligence hand-held robotics solution for joint replacement surgeries.
“We are delighted to partner with Meitra Hospital. The UAE has always been a step ahead with its innovations and collaborations, and the healthcare sector is further accelerating this space with its advancements. As one of the leading hospitals in the UAE, we are committed to bringing some of the best technologies to this region and are confident that this new center for bone and joint will help patients access effective and efficient treatment models,” said Ghada Sawalmah.
“We are glad to associate with Gargash Hospital. Meitra has a strong reputation in Orthopaedics, and our international launch in Dubai with Gargash Hospital is a significant milestone in bringing quality healthcare to patients in the UAE and GCC. I am confident that this partnership will continue to make strides in the right direction, and we will be able to positively impact more lives going forward,” said Faizal E Kottikollon.
The CORI Robotics Surgical System simplifies the surgical process with pinpoint accuracy to place the knee implants through real-time imaging, carefully treating the soft tissues to attain optimised alignment and balance, which significantly improves the natural function and life expectancy of the knee, over regular, conventional joint replacement surgery. There will be less pain, reduced risk of muscle damage, less rehabilitation time leading to an earlier, smoother return to an active lifestyle.
Another key offering is structural spine surgeries. For patients with back pain with conditions that fail to be medically treated such as degenerative discs, scoliosis, kyphosis, spinal column deformities, infection, fractures and herniated discs, structural spine surgeries help correct spinal deformities, speed recovery, minimise post-operative pain and improve recovery with excellent clinical outcomes.
