Rare shoulder replacement surgery successfully completed in Dubai

Another medical achievement for Dubai where one of DXH Group members, Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery, has successfully completed its first total shoulder joint replacement surgery on a 58-year old Arab medical tourist. 

A growing number of patients today are suffering from underlying shoulder arthritis but many continue to suffer silently because of the lack of professional treatment services. With Burjeel Hospital’s highly skilled team of doctors, lead by Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Bhuvaneshwar Machani, patients are in very safe hands.

Dr. Machani has specialised in upper limb treatment and performed more than 200 shoulder joint replacements. The shoulder replacement surgery is intended for patients who are more than 60 years old and have worsening arthritis in the shoulder joints, with moderate to severe pain that significantly affects specific body functions.

Burjeel Hospital currently performs about 800-900 joint replacements each year for the residents of the UAE, GCC and other neighbouring countries, making complex procedures such as shoulder and elbow replacement surgeries, a reality for thousands of patients.
