Dr Kassem El-Shunnar
Top Dubai neurosurgeon for Seoul summit
Dubai, September 12, 2013
A Dubai-based eminent neurosurgeon has been selected to present papers on ground breaking surgical procedures at the ongoing World Congress of Neurosurgery 2013 in Seoul.
Organised by the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies, the 15th World Congress of Neurosurgery opened on September 8 to run until September 13.
Dr Kassem El-Shunnar, senior consultant neurosurgeon at the American Hospital Dubai, will present three papers to the congress.
The papers will cover spinal and neuro-endocrine surgical procedures that are being used at the American Hospital Dubai, including use of a new navigation technology for complex spine surgery; a new cervical disc procedure for the spine; and a multidisciplinary approach to using endoscopic navigation for pituitary tumor surgery.
Dr El-Shunnar will share the substantial new knowledge gained through the experience of the hospital in each of these areas of neurosurgery.
“It is an honour and a privilege to attend the prestigious Congress and especially to present three papers to the world’s leaders in neurosurgery,” Dr El-Shunnar said.
“It is an excellent opportunity to showcase the advanced treatments available in Dubai, as the regional healthcare hub and a growing centre of healthcare tourism. The neurosurgery team at the American Hospital Dubai has been fortunate to work with very advanced technology and techniques for the benefit of our patients and we are delighted to be able to share this significant experience with our fellow specialists,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
