Dr Sudhir Pandya
AHD appoints specialist physician
Dubai, November 7, 2012
The American Hospital Dubai (AHD) has appointed Dr Sudhir Pandya as a gastroenterologist – a specialist in the digestive systems and its disorders – at the hospital’s Dubai campus.
The medical staff is currently undergoing rapid development as the campus continues to grow, with the team of American Board Certified (or equivalent) physicians set to reach 100 by the end of 2012 as the range of medical services develops, the hospital said in a statement.
Prior to joining the American Hospital Dubai, Dr Pandya was a gastroenterologist at Halton Healthcare Services, Ontario, Canada.
Dr Pandya is also qualified in therapeutic endoscopy and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), a medical technique combining the use of endoscopy and fluoroscopy to diagnose and treat certain digestive problems.
With an endoscope, the physician can see directly the inside of the stomach and duodenum, and inject dyes into areas so they can be seen on X-rays. Dr Pandya also has extensive experience in the latest treatments for inflammatory bowel diseases.
Thomas Murray, chief executive officer at the American Hospital Dubai, said: “We are delighted to welcome Dr Pandya to our growing team of world class physicians at the American Hospital Dubai.
“Our unwavering commitment to working with the best qualified doctors has been a feature of the hospital for more than 15 years and we continue this policy even as we grow and expand significantly at our Dubai campus. Dr Pandya brings outstanding credentials and experience to the team.”
Dr Pandya undertook his basic medical training at the University of Nairobi, Kenya in 1984. In 1995, he obtained his American Board Certification of Gastroenterology and also acquired his Fellowship in Internal Medicine from the Royal College of Physicians, Canada (FRCPC) in 1994 and Fellowship in Gastroenterology from the Royal College of Physicians, Canada in 1996. – TradeArabia News Service
