Al Qassimi Women’s & Children’s Hospital performs 415 neonatal surgeries

SHARJAH, 15th August, 2021 – The Emirates Health Services (EHS) has revealed that Al Qassimi Women’s & Children’s Hospital, since the COVID-19 outbreak, has successfully performed more than 415 pediatric surgeries, most of which for newborns with congenital anomalies, with a success rate of up to 100 percent.
This achievement comes as part of the EHS’s plans to provide integrated health care according to the best excellence and professional standards. This also stems from the EHS’s keenness to provide its hospitals and health facilities with the latest diagnostic devices and high-tech equipment according to the highest international quality standards.
Such procedures contribute to enhancing local and international confidence in the efficiency of health services and consolidating the status and gains of the health sector in the country.
“This achievement cements the institution’s efficiency in applying the standards of the continuation of services and business and achieving the goals of national resilience in adapting to challenges and turning them into success,” Youssef Mohammed Al Serkal, Director-General of EHS, said.
Using endoscopes in about 50 percent of pediatric surgeries has led to the reduction of the number of hours dedicated to surgeries, noted Dr. Safia Al Khaja, Director of the hospital, while the sophisticated equipment has greatly contributed to preparing an ideal work environment for pediatric consultants and surgeons.
Also, using endoscopes contributes to reducing the hospital length of stay by 50 percent, in addition to achieving a high success rate with 30 percent fewer side effects, especially in newborns whose cases require rapid surgical intervention, Al Khaja added.
