Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery (BHAS), Dubai is pleased to announce our newly formed collaboration with The Coxa Hospital for Joint Replacement, the largest hospital in Finland specializing in joint replacement surgery. This exciting new collaboration was made a reality when Dr. Samih Tarabichi, Director General and Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon of BHAS recently signed an Agreement with the CEO of Joint Replacement Hospital COXA – Mr. Tarmo Martikainen during Dr. Tarabichi’s visit to COXA upon an official invitation from the hospital.

COXA Hospital is Finland’s leader in joint replacement revision surgeries, boasting a team of 190 highly trained experts in their field, 7 operating rooms, 2 inpatient wards, 26 beds and a recovery room with 10 beds. With more than 4,000 procedures performed annually, the hospital plays a major role in surgery in Europe and only performs total joint replacements including hip, knees, shoulder, ankle and elbow.  One of the main focus areas at COXA is scientific research and education and over the years, COXA has lead research of the highest international caliber.

The Agreement that has been signed aims to develop and implement collaborative efforts between BHAS and COXA which will improve the patient experience, enhance quality and add value to businesses while elevating the health of the communities they serve. The Contract further indicates that there will be rotating trainings facilitated for both BHAS and COXA staff - which will further increase the value of health care services provided to the patient clientele by demonstrating higher quality, greater access and enhanced patient satisfaction.

BHAS and COXA have signaled their intention to cement and strengthen their collaboration in research, education and patient care through clinical integration efforts.  These efforts bring physicians and hospitals together to develop collaborative solutions which improve patient management, access to care and enhancing information sharing. Dr. Tarabichi said: “We welcome this opportunity to strengthen our relationship with the COXA Joint Replacement Hospital in establishing robust links committed to the pursuit of excellence in patient care, research and educational activities like the International Congress for Joint Replacement (ICJR).”

COXA is further expanding their clinical expertise to the Russian market and they intend to open clinics catering exclusively to the Russian patients in the future. They shall also be initiating and managing an official clinic at BHAS, for the purpose of clinical assessments and performing of complex arthroplasty surgeries at BHAS. This initiative would be a great add-on to draw Russian patients to Dubai. The partnership between the two hospitals recognize our strong mutual interests and laudable presence in joint arthroplasty markets in Europe and the Middle East and will see us broaden the way we work together.

On a closing remark, Dr. Tarabichi added : “'The collaboration between BHAS and COXA underpins the quality of the care that is provided to patients; the delivery of premium research bringing innovation from the laboratory bench to the bedside; and the provision of unrivaled education and training of doctors. Our decision to enter into this formal Agreement reinforces this very significant affiliation.”
