Mediclinic Parkview Hospital opened in autumn 2018 and has already sealed its reputation in stone as an excellent place for medical treatment. This is Mediclinic Middle East’s third Dubai hospital and the seventh it has opened in the UAE. This place represents the biggest greenfield construction project by value undertaken by Mediclinic International ever, across three continents, and that makes it extra-special. You can expect high international standards of healthcare and the same popular treatments patients have come to expect from our brand. Because we're so close to the fast-growing residential areas of the city, the New Dubai area on Umm Suqeim Road, expert emergency and specialist medicine is closer to home than ever before for local people.

We offer patients from home and abroad more than 35 consultant-led primary, secondary and tertiary clinical services, the highlights of which are our priority outpatient appointment system for children and our 24/7 paediatric Emergency department, with an anaesthetist on site day and night. We also provide excellent maternity services and provide a Level III NICU. There's a wonderful breast unit staffed by women and popular plastic and reconstructive surgery. We run an effective weight reduction programme and our location means we're able to place emphasis on a number of essential services: family medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, and paediatrics. It's great to know we employ the full complement of female consultant obstetricians, which makes the whole thing more relaxing, and we specialise in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, paediatrics, Bariatric Surgery, and Digestive Diseases, all dealt with by specialist people in specialised units.

What is Rheumatology? 

Rheumatology is a subspecialty of internal medicine and paediatrics. It covers the many autoimmune diseases and heritable connective tissue disorders of the joints and soft tissues. Involving the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disease and autoimmune problems, there’s no surgery involved.

The discipline also involves researching the underlying causes of these diseases and using the results of their analyses to improve treatments. You’ll find a rheumatology department in most outpatient clinics and other rheumatology specialists on the wards, potentially seeing people with any of more than a hundred different conditions.  

What procedures can you find at a Rheumatology clinic? 

  • Physical examinations 
  • X-rays, musculoskeletal ultrasound, CT scans and MRI scans  
  • Laboratory tests 
  • Treatment with medicines and drugs
  •  Biopsies, including synovial and muscle biopsies 
  • Injections into the soft tissues and joints, for example steroid injections for tennis elbow
  • Spinal injections 

What should you expect at a Rheumatology clinic?

Rheumatic diseases are often complex, so are challenging to diagnose. Your rheumatologists will take your medical history, and examine your entire body for the signs and symptoms of inflammation. They’ll also ask about your family history, review the results of the tests you’ve had, and ask about your medications. If you need more tests they’ll combine the results with everything else to pin down the source of your symptoms and create a tailored treatment plan. You might be given medicines, referred for physical therapy or to another specialist. Your rheumatologist can also provide expert advice about coping mechanisms, ideas to stop things getting worse, ways to get full function back, and techniques to improve your well-being as a whole.
