Must Read

Dubai, UAE- May 2024- Surgeons at Dubai Health have announced a groundbreaking achievement: the successful removal of the world’s largest adrenal tumor at Dubai Hospital. Dubai Hospital’s multidisciplinary approach to the surgery, which forms part of the emirate’s first integrated academic health system, ensured the best possible outcome. The successful surgery also reflects Dubai Health’s promise to put the Patient First.

The hospital’s emergency unit received a referral for the 69-year-old patient, previously in good health, due to the discovery of a massive abdominal mass during a scan. Struggling with walking and breathing for months prior to surgery, the patient’s condition necessitated immediate specialized care.

Specialists from various disciplines across Dubai Health gathered at Dubai Hospital to deduce the best course of action for the patient. A multidisciplinary team of experts from urology, oncology, radiology, interventional radiology, vascular surgery, general surgery, and anesthesia performed the four-hour procedure. Measuring 27 x 26 cm and weighing 9.4 kilograms, the tumor’s size and weight surpassed all previous records.

Dr. Fariborz Bagheri, Consultant Urologist at Dubai Hospital, who led the operation, highlighted the complexity and risks associated with the procedure. “Due to the tumor’s size and its compression on vital structures, surgical intervention posed considerable challenges,” stated Dr. Fariborz. “However, without intervention, the patient’s survival was at high risk.”

Reflecting on the outcome, Dr. Fariborz expressed gratitude for the successful procedure, attributing it to the combined efforts of the medical and surgical teams. He further commented, “We are very thankful that the patient responded well to the surgery and has fully recovered.”

Furthermore, Dr. Mariam Al Raeesi, CEO of Dubai Hospital, highlighted the collaborative efforts of the multidisciplinary team in deciding to proceed with the surgery. “After careful consideration and collaboration among our medical and surgical experts, it was agreed to undertake this complex procedure,” Dr. Al Raeesi said. “The enormous success of the procedure is a huge testament to our medical staff here at Dubai Hospital, putting in practice our Patient First promise focused on delivering high-quality care for patients.”
