Values (WE CARE)
The Department of Pediatric Surgery at Latifa Hospital was established in 1987. It is the only center in Dubai and the Northern Emirates to provide general pediatric surgery, pediatric urology and neonatal surgery.
As pediatric surgeons, we are primarily concerned with the diagnosis, pre-operative and postoperative management of surgical problems in children and newborns. Recognising and correcting these problems surgically will ensure the good quality of life their parents are hoping for.
We are striving to provide state-of-the-art surgical services for newborns and children. With our advanced neonatal intensive care unit we are managing to care for very sick neonates with surgical problems.
Our services as a tertiary hospital have extended to treat patients referred to us from other hospitals within the UAE as well as from nearby gulf countries.
To continuously improve our services to cope with international standards we are publishing our clinical data on a yearly basis in order to compare it with the best pediatric surgery practices from all over the world.
We are recognized by the European Board of Pediatric Surgery and by the Arab Board of Pediatric Surgery as a training center for pediatric surgery.
