Live surgical reconstructions captivate the delegates at Arab Health 2017

Over 100 leading healthcare businesses, renowned hospital groups and esteemed clinicians from world-leading clinics were amongst the UK delegation participating at Arab Health 2017 to showcase ‘the very best’ of British healthcare.

Organised by the Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) - the industry association for the medical technology sector in the UK - the UK Pavilion highlighted how British developments are transforming the lives of patients and clinicians across the globe.

The centrepiece of the pavilion was a state-of-the-art operating theatre, equipped with advanced UK technologies. This surgical “stage" celebrated collaborations between healthcare providers, clinicians and healthcare technology companies and allowed visitors to watch Britain’s best surgeons in action. Hospitals taking part in the demonstrations included the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital (RB & HH), UK, who carried out a simulation of a unique heart surgery at the show that could save the life of young people, particularly athletes suffering from this inherited heart disorder that could result in death.

H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum (the Deputy Ruler of Dubai, UAE Minister of Finance and the President of the Dubai Health Authority) officially inaugurated the 42nd edition of the show.  Upon visiting the ABHI stand (reportedly the first stop on his tour) he commented on the 'remarkable presence of national and international exhibitors' at UK_ABHI 2017'. 


London’s renowned Harley Street Medical Area returned to the Middle East for its third year; this time with 23 world-leading clinics and hospital groups. This year’s attendees included the prestigious King Edward VII Hospital, frequented by the British royal family and patronage by Her Majesty the Queen. Isokinetic, an international medical group specialising in the management and recovery of sports injuries and listed as one of the 45 FIFA Medical Centres of Excellence in the world were also be in attendance. As the world’s largest private hospital group, HCA International also joined the Harley Street Medical Area to showcase their clinical excellence and state-of-the-art facilities.
