Our scope of service encompasses a wide range of conditions, including :
Congenital Hand Deformities & Hand Surgery in Children : A multidisciplinary approach involving close cooperation with the Children's Hospital is essential for diagnosing and treating congenital hand malformations, which can lead to physical and psychological impairments.
Hand Trauma : The hand is prone to injuries, and prompt and adequate treatment is vital. The intricate anatomy and close proximity of functionally important structures necessitate the involvement of a hand surgeon from the beginning. We have established a 24/7 Hand Emergency service at Fakeeh University Hospital Dubai.
Sports Injuries : The hand and wrist are vulnerable to acute and chronic injuries, particularly in sports that require precise and rapid movements. Our hand surgeons, with their extensive experience in treating top-level athletes, understand the specific demands and challenges associated with sports-related hand injuries.
Brachial Plexus, Peripheral Nerves & Surgery of Palsies : Peripheral nerve damage can occur due to various causes, such as injury, infection, metabolic disorders, medical conditions, autoimmune diseases, or intoxications. Restoring grip function and sensibility is the primary focus of hand surgery in these cases, necessitating close cooperation with the field of Neurology.
Hand Tumors : Tumors can develop in the hand and wrist area, and while the majority are benign, malignant tumors require a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment approach. We emphasize a multidisciplinary and multiprofessional collaboration, working closely with the Tumor Center, to ensure the best possible outcomes.
Dupuytren's Disease : Also known as Viking's disease, Dupuytren's disease affects the connective tissue in the hand and can cause knots and cord-like structures, leading to the bending of fingers and restricted hand movement. Our team collaborates closely with specialists in Internal Medicine and Radiotherapy to provide comprehensive treatment options for Dupuytren's disease.
Rheumatoid Hand : Rheumatoid arthritis and other rheumatic conditions can cause joint pain, swelling, and deformities in the hand. Our approach to rheumatoid hand lesions involves a full rheumatological work-up and close cooperation with Rheumatology specialists to develop personalized treatment plans.
Hand Surgery of the Elderly & Aging Hand : As part of the natural aging process, the hand undergoes various changes that can affect its function, aesthetics, and overall well-being. Our specialized approach addresses age-related issues such as skin problems, vascular concerns, nerve disorders, tendon issues, joint problems, and bone conditions. By taking a holistic approach and collaborating with all departments at Fakeeh University Hospital, we strive to improve the quality of life for our elderly patients.
Wrist & Finger Joints and Total Joint Replacement : Injuries and conditions affecting the wrist and finger joints require expert care to preserve joint function and alleviate pain.
