The Advanced Gynecology Institute (AGI) at Burjeel Medical City, Abu Dhabi, is a compendium of complex gynecological care under one roof. The institute branches out into three sections: – Gynecological Oncology, IFEM Endo Middle East Clinic (Franco-European Multidisciplinary Institute of Endometriosis), and Complex Gynecology Care. Our multidisciplinary surgical team of experts will focus exclusively on rare and complex gynecological conditions, endometriosis in all its ramifications, and all aspects of gynecological oncology/precancerous conditions. Minimally Invasive Surgical (MIS) will be carried out using state-of-the-art 3D laparoscopy and DaVinci robotics, making it a center of quaternary gynecological care. Along with surgical competence, our highly experienced surgeons will be involved in clinical research and training, which will broaden the horizons of the region’s complex gynecology and gynecology cancer care.
Gynecological oncology is a subspecialty of gynecology that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of cancers that affect the female reproductive system. This includes cancers of the ovaries, uterus, cervix, vulva, and vagina. Surgical procedures may range from minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopy and robotics to more extensive surgeries such as hysterectomy, pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomies, pelvic exenteration to extensive cytoreductive surgical procedures. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are often used in combination with surgery to improve the chances of a cure. In addition to treating cancer, our gynecological oncologist also focuses on preserving reproductive function in young patients, managing the side effects of treatment, and improving the quality of life for patients with advanced or recurrent gynecological malignancies.
Endometriosis is a chronic and often painful gynecological disorder that affects millions of women worldwide. It occurs when the tissue similar to the lining of the uterus, called the endometrium, grows outside the uterus. This misplaced tissue can be found on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, outer surface of the uterus, and other pelvic organs. The IFEM Endo Middle East Clinic aims to provide advanced and highly skilled care laparoscopically and robotically to patients suffering from complex endometriosis conditions bridging the gap between location proximity and complex care. Our multidisciplinary team of experts comprising of endometriosis specialists with expertise in surgery, infertility, diagnosis, and pain management. The clinic is an extension of the SRC Center of Excellence IFEM Endo in Bordeaux, France, who exclusively specialize in endometriosis care from evidence-based practice and unorthodox techniques to best cater to a patient’s case.
