At Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, what sets us apart is our delivery of compassionate care with a continual focus on innovation. In addition to offering worldclass complex care for our patients, we have also pioneered many firsts in the UAE and the region. A prominent example is the organ transplant capabilities we have brought to the UAE. To date, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s Transplant Center has completed several challenging transplants, including several double lung transplants, multiple combined organ transplants, and even a ground-breaking triple kidney swap transplant. We have also been privileged to transform cancer care by making Ethos adaptive radiotherapy available for patients. This pioneering AI-powered system uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology to allow real-time adaptation of cancer treatment based on changes in the patient’s anatomy and tumor status, thus optimizing treatment time and radiation exposure for patients with pelvic, abdominal, bladder and prostate cancers. Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi was the first to launch the technology within the Cleveland Clinic Global Network, and also the first to bring the new-age system to the UAE. We currently offer the country’s first invasive microvascular and coronary spasm program and have treated complex cardiovascular conditions including over 430 TAVR procedures since 2015.
