UAE, May 28, 2017- Prime Hospital, Dubai's leading private, multi speciality hospital, has recently been accredited with the ‘Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery' by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC), an internationally recognized healthcare leader committed to advancing the safety, efficacy and efficiency of surgical care worldwide. Dr. Neil Hutcher, Chief Medical Officer & Vice President, SRC, headed the team that conducted the inspection of Prime Hospital.

The ‘Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery' program is a global patient safety and quality improvement initiative available to all bariatric surgeons and facilities worldwide. Prime Hospital is the first private hospital under the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) to receive this certification—an achievement that demonstrates the vision of Dr. Jamil Ahmed, Managing Director of Prime Hospital, to become a most respected healthcare provider and offer world class high-quality treatment and care.

Dr. Jamil Ahmed, Managing Director of Prime Hospital, said: “The accreditation of the ‘Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery' by SRC is a prestigious recognition and it reinforces Prime Hospital's commitment to maintain excellence in metabolic and bariatric surgery. Our facility is highly equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and is also managed by qualified and certified bariatric surgeons along with excellent surgical team and support staff. We will continue to attain such world-class benchmarks in our services and procedures so that patients can make informed decisions while choosing their healthcare provider.”

Dr. Hutcher said: “Accrediting Prime Hospital with the ‘Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery,' as the first private hospital under the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) to receive this certification, is a reflection of the world-class medical facilities and equipment provided by Prime Hospital, in addition to its exceptional team of certified bariatric surgeons and support staff. These factors have contributed to Prime Hospital receiving this prestigious accreditation, and its reputable position as Dubai's leading private, multi speciality hospital.”

Statistics indicate that the rate of obesity in the UAE has reached around 30 per cent of the population, which is a growing problem and has become one of the most serious diseases facing all age groups because of the serious risks to health in general. It is the cause of several diseases such as diabetes high blood pressure, heart disease, the erosion of joints, difficulty breathing during sleep, acid reflux, depression, low fertility and menstrual disorders in females and other diseases.

Services provided by Prime Hospital include the diagnosis and treatment of various obesity cases, and the provision of various methods of treating obesity such as gastric bypass and gastric bypass surgery, which is one of the most widespread operations in the world to eliminate obesity, where 60 per cent of patients can maintain their weight after a gastric shearing process for a period of at least five years.
