Medcare Hospital Al Safa is recognized by SRC as a Center of Excellence for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeries


Medcare Hospital Al Safa is proud to announce that it has been awarded both the Center of Excellence and the Surgeon of Excellence Awards in the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery categories by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC). This essentially classifies Medcare Hospital Al Safa as a leader in weight management surgeries not only in the UAE but internationally as well. 

“The Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (COEMBS) Accreditation is awarded only to those facilities and its associated surgeons who have displayed exemplary high-quality perioperative and long-term follow-up care to their patients, and we are extremely proud to have been awarded this renowned accreditation which is a true reflection of the world-class care, facility and surgeons that Medcare offers its patients,” said Dr Shanila Laiju, CEO at Medcare Hospital Al Safa and Medcare Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital. 

Medcare offers a variety of weight management surgeries, including Gastric Bypass surgery and is proud to be recognized as leaders in these sectors. Bariatric Surgery is a method used when patients are looking to lose a significant amount of weight which could be hindering their quality of life and causing medical complications such as hypertension, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and apnea. 

“Receiving the SRC Gold Seal of Accreditation is an incredible honour in the medical industry,” said Dr Hussam Al Trabulsi, General & Bariatric Surgeon at Medcare Hospital Al Safa, in response to receiving this renowned accreditation. “Only those top surgeons, physicians and medical professionals across the world who are dedicated to sustaining a culture of excellence by committing to safety, high-quality surgical care and optimal patient outcomes are recognized.”

There are two ways of performing Gastric Bypass surgery which are the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass method, where a band is used to make the stomach physically smaller, and the Sleeve Gastronomy method, which is where a laparoscope is used to physically remove 75% of the stomach, leaving a narrow gastric tube or sleeve. Research has proven that bariatric surgery leads to a significant and long-term reduction in weight, recovery from diabetes and improvement in cardiovascular factors. 

Medcare Hospital Al Safa offer a variety of weight-management options, including surgery and nutrition plans. For more information, visit or follow @Medcareae.
