United Arab Emirates Medical Tourism

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is situated along the Arabian Peninsula. It is bordered by Saudi Arabia to the south, south-east and the west; by Qatar to the north-west and by Oman to the north-east and the south-east. One of the biggest attractions here can be the Arabian Desert itself where tourists can also enjoy many recreational facilities like camel rides. Other things worth seeing in the UAE are modern buildings like Burj Al Arab or structures like the Jebel Hafeet Mountain road.

In recent times, the UAE has also become a popular destination for medical tourism. According to a survey conducted by the Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), about 80 percent of the doctors believe the reason for large number of medical tourists visiting the UAE is the excellent quality of surgeries and medical care offered. The top treatments as per the survey are infertility and cosmetic surgeries. Others are dental, cardiac and orthopedic procedures, treatments, or tests. In the UAE, more than 90 medical facilities are accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI), which is considered to be among the largest accredited numbers in the world.
