A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove the uterus (womb). It is performed to treat a variety of different conditions, heavy periods, pelvic pain, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, uterine cancer, fibroids (benign tumors), endometriosis, and chronic pelvic pain. Hysterectomies are most commonly performed in women above the age of 40.
Patients will likely need several weeks before they are fit to travel following a hysterectomy.
A myomectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove fibroids from the uterus. Uterine fibroids are growths which are non-cancerous that form on the uterus. Fibroids are removed as they can cause vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, lower back pain, pain during sexual intercourse, and constipation.
Cataracts are cloudy patches in the lens of the eye that are common as a result of aging. Cataract removal surgery is recommended for patients who experience impairment to vision and are sensitive to light as a result of the cataract. The surgery involves the removal of the natural lens and it is most commonly replaced with a synthetic lens.
Patients can usually fly soon after cataract surgery, but should take precautions to avoid dryness in the eye.
Glaucoma treatment aims to relieve symptoms of glaucoma and prevent further damage, deterioration, and loss of vision. Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes damage to the optic nerve, which creates problems with vision and if left untreated, can lead to loss of vision.
Gastric bypass surgery is performed to help patients to lose weight by reducing the size of the stomach. The surgery is performed to help patients with weight-loss after non-surgical methods such as change of diet and regular exercise, have failed to produce results.
Flying after surgery can increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and patients will need to be cleared by the surgeon before flying.
Gastric sleeve surgery, which may also be referred to as sleeve gastrectomy, is a type of weight-loss surgery in which a large part of the stomach is removed. As a result, the remaining stomach is only around 25% of the size, meaning patients must eat smaller portions, and must modify their diet.
After gastric sleeve surgery, the patient will need to be cleared by the surgeon before flying.
An echocardiogram, commonly referred to as an echo, is a test that uses sound waves to assess the heart by creating 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional images of the heart.
Patients can usually leave after the procedure, however depending on the findings, they may need to stay longer if treatment is necessary.
An electrocardiogram (also called an ECG or EKG) is performed to identify problems with the heart, such as heart disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathy, congenital heart defects, heart valve disease, or pericarditis.
Patients can usually fly straight away, unless the electrocardiogram identifies serious heart problems.
Colectomy is a surgical procedure to remove all or part of the colon (also called the large intestine). It is performed in order to treat or prevent certain diseases and conditions such as uncontrollable bleeding in the colon, a bowel obstruction, colon cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and diverticulitis.

Patients may require a follow-up appointment to get stitches removed. If patients need to fly sooner, this should be discussed with the surgeon.

A laminectomy is a surgical procedure performed to alleviate pressure from the spinal cord. The surgery involves removing part of the lamina, which is a vertebral bone, and in some cases part of the ligament. Part of the bone or ligaments can put pressure on the nerves and spinal cord, which causes weakness and numbness in the arms and legs.
Patients will need to have their stitches removed after 2 weeks and it will take some time for them to be able to walk after the surgery.
Circumcision is a surgical procedure to remove the foreskin which covers the glans penis (the tip of the penis). The procedure can be done by cutting around the foreskin with a scalpel, under either a local or general anesthetic. In young patients, there is also the option to use a compression ring, which is applied and causes the foreskin to fall off after several weeks.
Although patients can usually fly straight away, it may be uncomfortable sitting for a long flight.

it was an amazing experience being operated for my lower back cyst by Dr. Salil. He is a thoroughly professional and caring doctor. Staff are extremely welcoming right from the gatekeeper to the nurses specially sister Nidhi is remarkable in her approach towards work. However one thing which the hospital needs to work on is the day to day management of appointment, serving the patients timely etc. There's a lot of improvement requires in this area.

One of the worst experience with any hospital in UAE. 1stly the doc forgot to write my blood test which was covered in my insurance and i had to self pay. After giving blood test and ultrasound was told to check email for results after an hour. Since Saturday morning till today i haven't got any email yet. I complaint on call and was told that it's sent again but still my inbox , other folders or spam shows no email from them!!! After calling several times in these 2 and a half days either they transfer call to doc or to manager which continues hold but nobody bothers to answer the call. I even wrote twice on their website but still no answer from any of the authorities . In fact twice my mobile number was taken for call back but they never bothered to dial it. Highly disappointed!!! 1st and the last time patient !!! Not going to recommend anyone at all.
My experience at Thumbay Hospital was one of the amazing experiences. I am totally recovered and at my best to the enjoy the New Year in full bliss. Thanking all the Doctors and the team at Thumbay Hospital, Dubai, UAE.
