American Hospital Dubai expands paediatric team
Dubai, July 14, 2013
The American Hospital Dubai has appointed paediatric orthopedic surgeons and specialist foot surgeons at the hospital’s expanded specialist department dedicated to orthopedic surgery and total joint replacement.
Both Dr. Ludwig Schwering and Dr. Michael Vohrer were educated and trained in Germany, and were formerly consultants for paediatric orthopedics and foot surgery in the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology at the University of Freiburg, Germany.
Both surgeons hold special qualifications in orthopedics and are members of several professional medical organisations in Germany.
The new Orthopedics and Total Joint Replacement Center at the American Hospital Dubai treats adults and children with a wide range of joint related conditions through a team of Western board certified specialist orthopedic surgeons and practitioners.
The team delivers orthopedic trauma management, joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee joints, acute and reparative management of joint dislocations, arthroscopic diagnostic and therapeutic surgery of knees and shoulders, as well as sports medicine and physiotherapy.
Thomas Murray, chief executive officer of the American Hospital Dubai, said: “The new Orthopedics and Total Joint Replacement Center has been developed into a truly one stop shop for the comprehensive treatment of adults and children with joint problems, sports related injuries or suffering from trauma.”
“The Center has built a tremendous reputation in the region and beyond since we opened the hospital and we have continued to invest in and develop this team with the addition of highly qualified surgeons including Dr Schwering and Dr Vohrer, who bring outstanding experience and skills in the highly specialised area of pediatric orthopedics.
“We are confident that this newly enhanced department will continue to serve the community very effectively in this vital clinical area, supported by our extensive physiotherapy and rehabilitation services,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
