Thursday, December 17th, 2015
For the first time in UAE, Bareen International Hospital performed its first successful bilateral total hip replacement in one session. The American patient, aged 59 years old, underwent his surgery on 17th December 2015, the surgical time was 50 minutes on the right hip and 40 minutes on the left hip. The surgery was performed by Dr Oussama, consultant Orthopedic Surgeon, along with a team of anesthetists and a medical support team & nurses.
Dr Oussama says: "Studies have shown that simultaneous bilateral hip replacement reveals superior outcomes and fewer complication than two-stage procedures, and though not too common, the patient had arthritis progressing at the same rate on both left & right hip, therefore performing this surgery was his best option."
The patient received personalized attention and care during his recovery and was discharged a few days later.
