CORE Center of Excellence in embedded in the trusted system of Kings College Hospital London in Dubai Hills. Our radiology department is equipped with the newest technologies, allowing us the use the very first EOS System in the U.A.E. to obtain large x-ray images with a fraction of the exposure to radiation when compared to conventional imaging. The department also allows us to obtain MRI Images under General anesthesia for our very young patients
At CORE Center of Excellence we believe that surgery can only be the last resort and that all means of non-surgical treatment need to be exhausted prior to any invasive procedure. When dealing with children, timing of surgery can be of essence. Too early or too late surgery can lead to a less positive outcome. The understanding of the biology of a growing child or adolescent is hence important to identify the best timing for the individual treatment. Of course prevention and early detection are key elements to avoid more extensive treatment in the future. Our Center offers multiple screening programs such as the baby hip screening program and scoliosis screening of the spine.
The Children’s Orthopedics and Rehabilitation Center of Excellence does not only offer a highly skilled team of doctors and nurses to your child, it also provides reassurance to the family. Please do contact us though our dedicated land line should you require our assistance.
