Dr. Muthana Sartawi is an American Board-Certified Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon spearheading the unique Same-Day and Rapid Recovery Total Knee Replacement Program at Adam Vital Hospital.

Adam Vital Hospital is privileged to be one of the pioneers in the Middle East to provide this niche minimally invasive surgical technique in the field of Joint Replacement where the patient is discharged on the sameday of surgery, resulting in minimal pain and rapid recovery. This minimally invasive technique called as "Modified Intervastus Approach to the Knee'' is also popularized as "Rapid Recovery Knee Replacement". The procedure has been published in peer-reviewed journals and has contributed to an accelerated and speedy healing post Total Knee Replacement surgery.

Having performed more than 1000 Rapid Recovery Knee Replacement surgeries in the USA and GCC with a success rate of 98%, Dr. Sartawi brings the most advanced North American Joint Replacement technique to Dubai to serve the GCC patients without having them to travel to the USA. To ensure superior quality and efficacy, Dr. Sartawi imports surgical tools and medications from the USA to deliver excellent surgical outcomes.

The technique is registered and patented with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Dr. Sartawi holds several other patents registered at the Unites States Patent and Trademark Office in the field of orthopedics. Dr. Sartawi has received multiple recognitions from the former Amir of Kuwait, Kuwait Ministry of Health and Dubai Health Authority.
