UAE hospital organises 'breast clinic'
Abu Dhabi, September 24, 2012
RAK Hospital, a 65-bedded multispecialty private hospital in the UAE, will be conducting ‘A Breast Clinic’ till September 27 to educate people and outline the various congenital abnormalities.
During the week, “Complimentary Consultation and Self Breast Examination Workshop” will be conducted under the guidance of Dr Punam Bijlani, the clinical head- plastic and reconstructive services at RAK Hospital.
It is primarily focused on the identification and treatments available for congenital and developmental breast deformities.
The aim of the clinic is to educate people and outline the various congenital abnormalities that can affect the breasts and to discuss how and when they can be corrected or treated.
"The spectrum covers a wide range of abnormalities from Asymmetry of Breasts, Poland’s syndrome, underdeveloped breasts and abnormal shapes to accessory breasts/nipples," explained Dr Bijlani, a renowned plastic and aesthetic surgeon with over 14 years of experience.
Her areas of expertise include aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries with focus on breast and body contouring surgeries.
"Congenital abnormalities of the breast and chest wall are common and timely treatment for such deformities is crucial. As the child is growing it is vital that they understand their physical development and are aware that it is in right direction, especially breast development," she explained.
Most of the time such deformities go unnoticed due to lack of awareness and as such treatment is not done at the right time, said Dr Bijlani.
"Through this program we aim to cover all these aspects related to awareness, early diagnosis and suitable treatment, keeping in mind the psychological issues associated, Dr Bijlani added.-TradeArabia News Service
