Center of Excellence for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery
Dubai, the fastest growing healthcare city in UAE, is also fast evolving to become one of the leading medical capitals in the world. As of 2015, the industry worth of Dubai’s healthcare sector was projected in excess of $13 billion whereas the industry is projected to be worth $15 billion by the end of 2016. Dubai is home to more than 2,500 healthcare facilities and 33,000 medical professionals.
September 8, 2015, was the day when Dubai was as ranked as the 10th World Health Tourism Congress, with the Emirates attracting over 260,000 healthcare travelers. The city’s combined attractiveness and the availability of internationally accredited medical solutions have resulted in the emergence of medical tourism in the city. Patients from European, Arabian, and Asian countries can travel to Dubai for bariatric surgery.
Obesity is on the rise globally and UAE is not faring well compared to other countries. More than 2.1 billion people—close to 30 percent of the global population—today are overweight or obese, according to the World Health Organization. A consequence of the prevalence of overweight and obese people is the high incidence of the disease associated with the condition – type 2 diabetes. Data from the International Diabetes Federation to mark World Diabetes Day in November last year showed that there were 803,900 diabetics in the UAE, about 19 percent of the population.
More than 2.1 billion people – close to 30 percent of the global population – are overweight or obese.
Obesity is a critical concern in the UAE, with over 2.1 billion people being obese or overweight, contributing to a higher rate of type 2 diabetes. According to the International Diabetes Federation reports, 803,900 diabetic cases were from the UAE in a year (which is 19 percent of the population).
The Central Intelligence Agency World Factbook states that the country has a rate of obesity prevalence of 31.7 percent. Gulf countries are among the top 40 countries worldwide for higher prevalence in the rate of obesity.
In another report, over 66 and 60 percent of men and women in the UAE are obese. For them, the most common and effective surgery is sleeve gastrectomy, a popular type of bariatric surgery.
At Al Taie Center, we take these reports into consideration before diagnosing our patients. We first recommend them a balanced diet under the professional guidance of our seasoned dietitians. We also suggest them an exercise regimen because we know that surgery can never be the sole solution for patients with a body mass index of more than 35.
According to a report entitled the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013, by the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.
More than 66 percent of men and 60 percent of women in the UAE are already overweight or obese. The most popular surgeries in the UAE are sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass, more women than men have elected to have bariatric surgery.
High levels of diabetes and obesity in the Emirates have pushed up the number of people signing up for the operations. More than 25 percent of men and almost 40 percent of women in the UAE are deemed dangerously overweight. Nearly a fifth of residents is diagnosed with diabetes, the second-highest prevalence of the disease worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
Patients are first advised to adopt a balanced diet and exercise by the team at Rashid Hospital, which includes surgeons, nutritionists, cardiologists, psychologists, physiotherapists, respiratory physicians, and plastic surgeons. But surgery is the only viable option for obese patients who have a body mass index – a calculation for body fat based on height and weight – of 35 or more.
We have analyzed complications associated with childhood obesity:

Out of the total number of patients, 298,359 of them were foreigners.
