I am a British Board certified and American fellowship trained Paediatric Plastic Surgeon. I am the only formally trained paediatric plastic surgeon in the United Arab Emirates. I deal with deformities and conditions affecting the full body, including face and hands. I work at Al Jalila Children’s Hospital, Dubai which is the only dedicated children’s hospital in the United Arab Emirates. My colleagues have all worked at some of the best children’s hospitals in the world. We believe in a culture of safety, multi-disciplinary team work and total commitment to excellence.
Many children with deformities who would greatly benefit from surgery face financial barriers to accessing treatment. Treatment is very often expensive and beyond the reach of many families.
I offer the full range of paediatric plastic surgery and craniofacial surgery services. These include cleft lip and palate, cranial and facial deformity correction, children’s hand surgery, burn reconstruction, nerve surgery, breast and abdomen reconstruction and scar management.
HOW CAN I BECOME A PAEDIATRIC PLASTIC SURGEON?
Complete your full training and board certification in Plastic Reconstructive Surgery Obtain a Fellowship training in Paediatric Plastic surgery in the US or Canada. Most fellowships are combined with Craniofacial and Cleft Surgery.
In the United Kingdom, services are subdivided into Clefts, Craniofacial, Paediatric hands, Paediatric burns, Vascular Anomalies and Ear reconstruction. Selective European and Australasia fellowships combine Craniofacial and Paediatric Plastic surgery and some are offered by other specialties.

Current primary cleft nose correction techniques are associated with a significant rate of long term alar collapse. The nasal lining on the cleft side has been observed to be distorted and deficient. Nasal endoscopy was used to map the two dimensional topogra- phy of the anterior nasal airway lining in a normal and patient with unilateral cleft lip.
Sepsis results in intense disturbances in homoeostasis and is responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality in early infancy. Owing to insufficiency on part of infant to develop adequate inflammatory response to localize the infection, they usually progress to disseminated systemic infection, pneumonia and/or meningitis.
We wish to highlight our experience of the endoscopic assisted craniosynostosis technique in the context of a developing healthcare system. In developing countries, internet penetration is increasing and parents are using the internet to research latest technical advances to seek treatment early.
