(Dubai, UAE) - Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital Dubai (CMC-Dubai) hosted a reception in honor of Mr. Roland Diggelmann, CEO of British multinational medical equipment manufacturing company Smith + Nephew. Mr. Diggelmann is on a visit to the UAE to commemorate Smith + Nephew’s collaboration with CMC-Dubai to introduce the CORI Surgical System – a state-of-the-art robotics platform for both total and partial knee arthroplasty applications being used for the very first time anywhere in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).

The reception was attended by renowned Emirati Orthopedic surgeon and robotic surgery specialist Dr. Ali Al Belooshi – with whom CMC Dubai has partnered to operate the CORI Surgical System, making him the first to perform a robotic-assisted surgery in EMEA using CORI’s pioneering technology – as well as senior executives of Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital including Mr. Abdulrahman Khansaheb, Chairman of the Board of Directors; Dr. Mounes Kalaawi, Chairman of Clemenceau Medicine International (CMI) and Group CEO of Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital, and Mr. Basel Aboujalala, Managing Director of Middle East and Africa at Smith + Nephew.

Chairman of the Board of Directors Mr. Abdulrahman Khansaheb, Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital Dubai, said, “Our hospital is already home to some of the world’s most advanced and exclusive surgical devices and medical technologies, and now with the addition of CORI, which practically redefines the concept of robotic surgery by allowing for more precise and minimally invasive surgical procedures, we reinforce our reputation as a pioneer in the region’s dynamic healthcare sector. It’s a matter of pride to us that we’re the first hospital in EMEA to bring this cutting-edge solution from Smith + Nephew to patients, and we are very pleased to welcome their CEO Mr. Diggelmann to our premises and introduce him to our state-of-the-art facilities.”

Mr. Roland Diggelmann said, “I’ve been watching in awe the giant leaps that UAE has been taking in the field of healthcare innovation, and it’s great to see Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital being at the center of this transformation, taking the lead in embracing tomorrow’s technologies and introducing new medical solutions that benefit patients and give them more control over their health, in the process helping cement UAE’s place on the global healthcare map.”

The CORI Surgical System is small, portable, and designed for today’s crowded operating rooms. It uses surgeon-controlled robotics, and its modular design will enable it to be scaled across the orthopedic service line. The benefits of robotics-assisted surgery for patients are myriad and may include improved patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) and shortened length of hospital stay.

Clemenceau Medical Center (Dubai) is based in Dubai Healthcare City Phase 2; and is part of Clemenceau Medicine International (CMI), a network of hospitals and medical centers serving the Middle East.
