Burjeel Medical City has launched an Advanced Gynecology Institute, fostering the provision of complex care solutions for women’s healthcare in the region.

The institute at Burjeel Medical City, the flagship facility of Burjeel Holdings, is designed to offer timely, sophisticated, and multidisciplinary healthcare solutions to women of all ages.

The launch of the institute comes just months after the hospital joined hands with the globally renowned Franco-European Multidisciplinary Institute of Endometriosis Academy (IFEM Endo).

According to the statement, “Three specialized clinics of the hospital, Gynecological Oncology, IFEM Endo Middle East Clinic, and Complex Gynecology Care, will come under the institute. It will offer advanced and comprehensive care including gynecological surgeries, minimally invasive procedures, and complex gynecology care for a wide range of conditions, including menorrhagia, fibroids, and benign ovarian masses.”

Prof. Horace Roman, a renowned endometriosis surgeon and founding member of IFEM Endo, will be heading the institute that brings together a team of highly qualified gynecologists, obstetricians, oncologists, and other healthcare professionals.

The institute’s primary focus will be on advanced surgical procedures. It has state-of-the-art surgical suites equipped with the latest technology, allowing for advanced procedures such as laparoscopic and robotic surgeries. These minimally invasive procedures may enable shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times, and less scarring compared to traditional open surgeries.

As per the statement, “Gynecological cancers are another focus area at the institute, where, in addition to treating cancer, there is also an emphasis on preserving reproductive function in young patients, managing the side effects of treatment, and improving the quality of life for patients with advanced or recurrent gynecological malignancies. Additionally, the institute will offer highly advanced minimally invasive surgeries for endometriosis.”
