Danat Al Emarat Hospital sets new standard in endometriosis care

ABU DHABI: A renowned surgeon at Danat Al Emarat Hospital for Women and Children, part of the M42 group, has performed life-changing endometriosis treatment on an international patient using ultrasonic scalpel technology.

Chloe Bremner, a 24-year-old from the UK, sought treatment from this esteemed facility due to its reputation for exceptional care and advanced technology, which she believed could swiftly address her condition.

Abu Dhabi’s renowned status as a medical hub, drawing patients worldwide, provided Bremner with confidence in the expertise available to her.

Affecting one in 10 women globally, endometriosis is often misdiagnosed leading to prolonged suffering. The condition involves tissue similar to the uterine lining growing outside the uterus, causing severe pain and potential infertility. Diagnosis can take seven to 10 years, emphasising the need for more specialised centres of excellence for endometriosis.

Chloe’s battle with endometriosis began in her early teens and escalated following
her first surgery last year. Unable to fund the expensive treatment privately, Chloe turned to a crowdfunding platform. It was through this that Dr. Zahid Raza Khan, a globally renowned expert in obstetrics and gynecology, and advanced minimal access gynecological surgery saw Chloe’s cry for help and reached out to offer support. This led Chloe to consider receiving the life-changing treatment in the UAE, and specifically in Abu Dhabi.

Danat Al Emarat Hospital is one of only three Centers of Excellence for multidisciplinary endometriosis care in the UAE. The hospital is committed to providing specialized and comprehensive care for patients with endometriosis, focusing on a multidisciplinary approach to managing and treating this gynecological condition effectively.

As an international patient at Danat Al Emarat, Chloe expressed heartfelt appreciation for the exceptional care and unwavering support she experienced. Under Dr. Khan’s compassionate guidance and the attentive nursing staff, Chloe found comfort, as they empathised with her pain and placed her well-being at the forefront.

The hospital’s world-class, tech-enabled facilities and holistic approach to patient care offered the ultimate peace of mind.

“Danat Al Emarat Hospital provided me with more than just medical care; they offered understanding, support, as a person first and foremost, and a personalized pathway to my healing. My journey with endometriosis has been challeng
ing, but finding this unique and accessible kind of treatment at Danat Al Emarat has been life-changing,” she said.

Dr. Khan highlighted innovative techniques such as ultrasonic scalpel technology, emphasising its precision and effectiveness compared to traditional methods. These techniques allow for minimally invasive surgery and precise excision, paving the way for improving outcomes in endometriosis treatment worldwide. With ultrasonic scalpel technology, Danat Al Emarat Hospital aims to provide superior outcomes and reduce the risk of recurrence, setting a new standard in endometriosis care.

Through a multidisciplinary approach spearheaded by Dr. Khan, Chloe was offered an innovative treatment plan, compassionate support, and comprehensive care to meet her unique needs, and finally, ending her decade-long struggle.

Understanding the complexities of treating endometriosis, Dr. Khan and his team effectively treated Chloe’s condition, providing her with a positive prognosis. During the procedure, meticulo
us care was taken to protect vital structures such as the ureters, which connect the kidneys to the bladder, ensuring Chloe’s safety throughout the surgery. Additional examinations, including bladder camera tests and biopsies, provided comprehensive insights into Chloe’s condition, guiding her postoperative care plan to ensure long-term relief.

“Endometriosis demands specialised care and innovative approaches for effective, personalised treatment. At Danat Al Emarat, we are dedicated to pioneering advancements in endometriosis surgery, ensuring better outcomes and improved quality of life for patients like Chloe,’ said Dr. Khan.

ometriosis is a progressive condition with serious implications, but it is not unbeatable. Following the successful surgery, Chloe’s recovery journey has been meticulously mapped out. Regular follow-ups, both in person and via telemedicine, have been scheduled to monitor her progress and address any lingering concerns.
