PureHealth’s Tawam Hospital brings back a smile to a man suffering from a cancerous tumor

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, June 23, 2023 – In line with the commitment of PureHealth – the Middle East’s largest integrated healthcare platform, to advance the science of longevity and quality of life of communities in the UAE, Tawam Hospital, part of the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) and a subsidiary of PureHealth, has conducted a complex operation for a patient in the fourth decade of life, marking another success to add to the hospital’s track record of medical achievements. Led by the leadership and expertise within the PureHealth – SEHA network, the Tawam Hospital conducted a complex surgery that lasted for more than seven hours on a patient who was complaining of bleeding in the digestive system, and a blockage in the stomach, with severe physical fatigue. The medical team in the oncology department at Tawam Hospital worked on developing an integrated treatment plan for the patient based on performing an urgent surgery to remove the organs affected by the tumor, which was found to originate from the colon, and extended its interference to the stomach wall. Dr. Omar Bakdash, Consultant Surgeon at Tawam Hospital, said: “Upon the patient’s arrival at Tawam Hospital, diverse medical specialists worked to fully evaluate his condition, and conduct an integrated series of medical analysis and tests. The patient was suffering from a tumor in the upper left part of the abdomen, extending to four organs of the stomach body, and the last part of the bracelet, spleen, and the left part of the colon. After performing the operation with complete success, followed by the appropriate treatment plan, the patient was able to return to normal life within a short period of time.” Dr. Bakdash added: “We are delighted to have been a part of the patient’s transformative journey towards recovery. We are committed to ensuring excellence in patient care and operations and contributing to SEHA and PureHealth’s vision to strengthen Abu Dhabi and the UAE’s position as the global hub for healthcare.” The patient said: “I was struggling and believed for a moment that my life was over, honestly. My tumor had been causing a lot of issues. The past few months have been a fast-fluctuating spiral, and the option of receiving treatment at Tawam Hospital, and my confidence in the expertise of the doctors at the hospital, has been a real transformation for me that has given me hope for life again. I thank the medical team and the hospital administration for the care and psychological support during my treatment phase.” PureHealth is driven by a deep commitment to transforming lives and making a positive impact on individuals and communities.
