Surgery

General, Minimal Access and Vascular Surgery

RAK Hospital is proud to highlight the services of one of the departments that has rapidly established itself over the past 4 years and gained excellent reputation across the entire UAE and even internationally.

The department of General, Minimal Access and Vascular Surgery of RAK Hospital comprises of a team of highly competent and experienced senior surgeons and dedicated staff. We do not only offer basic surgical treatment and care but go beyond that. We emphasize the need to keep up with the latest standards of knowledge combined with best equipment and standards of care. All of these factors ensure that our patients are treated in an atmosphere of utmost trust, confidence and competence. 

Going for surgery is a matter of trust. Patients who have to undergo a surgical procedure will naturally wish for a highly qualified and skilled surgeon with the highest ethical and moral standards.

Covering the mere technical aspects however are not enough, and it is important that each and every patient has the assurance to be operated in line with best medical practice and is well informed about benefits and possible risks of any specific procedure.

The true good surgeon is not only a good “craftsman” but takes charge of the entire plan of care, starting from the correct diagnosis to the right indication, from the right operation at the right time to proper after-care.

We surgeons at RAK Hospital are fully committed and dedicated to these principles and you can be sure that we live this culture day by day.

Routine procedures include

  • Thyroid surgery (including cancer surgery)
  • Breast surgery
  • Abdominal surgery
  • Thoracic surgery (surgery in the chest)
  • Arterial Bypass surgery
  • Varicose vein surgery (including endovascular laser)
  • Vascular access surgery for hemodialysis and implantation of port-a-cath
  • Minimal Access Surgery

Today, many procedures which needed open surgery through sometimes very large incisions, the worldwide tendency is to minimize the trauma patients. The advances in so called “Minimal Access Surgery” have been absolutely tremendous and RAK Hospital has since the very beginning been concentrating on this approach and whenever possible we offer our patients a minimal access option.

Our team comprises of surgeons who have extensive experience in this intricate technique, and master also complex procedures as listed below.

In selected cases, we even offer “Single Port Surgery”, where the entire procedure is done through only one single small incision in the umbilical area.

Routinely we perform the following procedures with the Minimal Access Technique

  • Cholecystectomy (removal of Gallbladder)
  • Appendectomy (removal of Appendix)
  • Repair of hernia (inguinal, umbilical, abdominal and femoral)
  • Surgery on the small and large intestine, stomach and liver, including cancer surgery
  • Surgery on the kidney (including removal of kidney for cancer)
  • Surgery on the uterus and ovaries (including repair of fallopian tube for extra-uterine gravidity, removal of uterus, removal of fibroids)
  • Thoracoscopic surgery (surgery in the chest)
  • Pediatric surgery (hernia, Hirschprung’s disease)
  • Bariatric surgery (Weight-loss surgery)
