 90% of joint replacement operations are performed in UAE hospitals

Doctors: UAE hospitals have reduced the travel of citizens for treatment abroad in all specialties

For the second day in a row, the Eleventh UAE International Orthopaedic Conference, organized by the Emirates Orthopaedic Division of the Emirates Medical Association at the Abu Dhabi Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), showcased its scientific program and the main themes in the fields of orthopaedics such as joint replacement surgery, sports medicine, fracture surgery, upper limb surgeries, limb deformities, foot and ankle deformities.

Dr. Ali Al Baluchi, Consultant Orthopedic and Joint Replacement Surgeon and Vice President of the Orthopedic Division at the Emirates Medical Association, revealed that orthopedics in the UAE has witnessed a great development over the past years as a result of attracting the best human expertise and international medical centers, in addition to the use of the latest devices and modern technologies used in diagnosis, surgery, treatment and best medical practices, which contributed to reducing the percentage of patients who were traveling for treatment outside the country in the past, noting that more than 90% of the Joint replacement operations are now performed in state hospitals.

He added that the subspecialties that used to force patients and their families to seek treatment abroad have become available in the country’s hospitals, including subspecialties in oncology, pediatric surgery and others, all of which have become covered by health insurance, in addition to the psychological comfort enjoyed by the patient inside the country among his family and family.

Dr. Ali Al Baluchi said that the second day of the conference reviewed a wide range of topics related to orthopaedics, modern fields that have occurred in orthopaedics, the latest global trends in stem cell technologies, and the modern uses of medical endoscopes in the fields of knee and shoulder replacement through the uses of robotics and artificial intelligence.

He pointed out that the knee roughness disease was reviewed and discussed for patients at the beginning of the injury as a preventive measure to avoid resorting to surgery through treatments with medications, exercise, oil needles or platelets together, where new studies were presented that confirmed the extent to which the patient benefited from oil injections with platelet injections (PRP), but doctors unanimously agreed that this procedure, despite its importance, does not work on the restoration and construction of cartilage, and this is confirmed medical information stating that Oil needles with stem cell needles do not build cartilage. He added that oil needles are used as a treatment to reduce roughness because they increase the lost viscosity in the joint and thus reduce the intensity of friction and pain, and are given to the patient according to his health condition and according to the severity of the roughness he suffers from, and we as doctors do not recommend taking the oil needle in a period of less than three months, where another medical procedure is necessary unless this procedure helps.

Dr. Al Baluchi pointed out that new ideas related to artificial joints and the latest scientific findings in the fields of orthopedic surgery were also discussed, especially with the entry of artificial intelligence and robotics, and changing the old mental image of artificial joints, pointing out that recent trends confirm that robotics applications in joint surgery are the best because it was found that only 80% of patients are satisfied after surgery, because joint replacement is done uniformly, but the new trends confirm The joint must be tailored according to the needs of each patient individually.

He pointed out that the use of robots and artificial intelligence during surgery is characterized by high accuracy in planning and implementation, which reduces human errors by 20%, pointing out that using the robot, the accuracy rate reaches 99%, in addition to that the time taken and the percentage of pain and bleeding during the operation and the period spent by th

e patient inside the hospital, becomes much less than traditional methods.

Dr. Al Balushi added that despite the great progress that has occurred in robotic surgery, globally, 85% of doctors still use traditional methods in surgery, so at the Eleventh UAE International Orthopedic Conference, we deliberately attracted senior surgeons who have proven their competence in robotic operations worldwide to inform our surgeons of everything new in this field..

The American company Straker and its agent in the UAE Al-Famed display the 4K diagnostic image system for bones to give the surgeon very accurate details during the surgery of any kind, and Dr. Amr Abdel Rahman and Manal Nagy from the company’s marketing team said that the modern devices currently available in orthopedics give doctors accurate diagnosis and the least surgical intervention and give patients the least period of recovery.

Dr. Dima Qobbaj, an official at Alinma Drug Warehouse, said that we offer the latest products of drugs approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat roughness and stimulate collagen production in the body, which is the product (CH Alpha).

The conference concludes its activities today, “Sunday”, by focusing on important topics such as inflammation and roughness of the joints, especially the knee and shoulder, and how to treat with the latest methods of arthroscopy or joint replacement using augmented reality and artificial intelligence to how to deal with complications that may arise after performing these operations, along with discussing developments in the treatments of sports, shoulder and knee injuries, especially ligament and tendon rupture, and addressing how to deal with the failure of the restoration process.
