Pre-operation

Before a surgery takes place, a patient must have a consultation with a physician within the hospital. This will help the surgeons understand how best to help the patient and which procedures to take.

Cancer surgery

A variety of factors influence whether or not a cancer patient is suitable for surgery. Variables such as size, stage, location and grade of the tumor can affect this decision. The overall fitness of the individual will also be taken into consideration, as operating on an objectively unhealthy patient could be hugely detrimental to the success of the operation.

Surgery, for a large number of patients, will be part of a combined solution involving other treatments. These will potentially involve radiation therapy and chemotherapy. To deter the spread of cancerous cells, these therapies will either be administered before or after the surgery, depending on the individual’s situation.


Post-operative

A specialized post-surgery after care team is on standby for all patients who undergo a procedure. The surgeon, who performed the operation, as well as the hospital’s nurses, closely monitors the individual in recovery, who will comfortably reside within a neighbouring department of the unit.

At the American Hospital Dubai, we have augmented a recovery programme, specifically devised to ensure a fast recovery with as few difficulties as possible. Our aim is to ensure a patient’s comfort, from their initial consultation to their discharge.
