The event was a first of its kind for the UAE and was designed for surgeons from across the world to improve their knowledge, and observe and discuss the latest surgical procedures to treat meniscal and ACL injuries.

 The symposium helped the visiting surgeons to further increase their knowledge about knee arthroscopic surgery, as well as learn more about the latest techniques in ACL surgery and options for saving the meniscus.  

Speaking on the importance of the Symposium both for the UAE and internationally, Dr Brown commented:

“We are delighted to have welcomed so many eminent surgeons to the International Knee & Joint Center and Burjeel Hospital here in Abu Dubai.

 This was a unique event for the UAE in such an important area of global healthcare.

Our Centre specializes in the treatment of patients with sports-related and degenerative disorders of the knee, hip shoulder and elbow, and we pride ourselves on the pioneering techniques that we have developed and use to treat our patients in the UAE and region.  

We have also demonstrated how to use the latest Smith & Nephew surgical devices effectively and safely.

 The symposium is an important example of the world-class care available in Abu Dhabi in line with the UAE’s 2030 vision towards achieving the highest standards of education and healthcare provision.”
