“Dubai Health” suspends all elective (local) health surgeries

The Dubai Health Authority has ordered all hospitals licensed by it, as well as one-day surgery clinics, to suspend all elective (medically unnecessary) surgeries until February 19, in line with efforts of the Dubai government to maintain the highest levels of health and safety in the community.

The decision aims to prioritize the most important and urgent health cases and only applies to elective operations that require deep anesthesia or general anesthesia and will allow operations that are medically necessary.

Surgical procedures of medical necessity include, for example, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgeries, cardiac and radiological interventions, removal of stones and stents in the urinary tract, and other urgent medical interventions in general surgery, ophthalmology, pediatrics, gynecology, and obstetrics.
