The endoscopy suite was established in December 1982 by the surgical department of the hospital, initially providing services to the surgical department only. By 1985, it started to serve the hospital as a whole. By 1995, video endoscopy services and emergency GIT bleeding therapeutic services were established.

Improvements to the endoscopy suite were undergone over the years. This was aided by the cooperation of other GIT centers including the Al Ghanim GIT center and Al Amiri Hospital.

At present, there are 5 consultants and 4 senior registrars from the surgical department who provide endoscopy sessions 4 days a week. Furthermore, 4 trainee registrars in surgery are trained under supervision. Emergency endoscopy services are provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The  Diabetic Foot Clinic started on 1997 for the treatment and care of diabetic patients with foot infections and ulcerations. We are seeing on average around 20 new cases per week seeking advice and treatment. From our follow up records, we have noticed a great general improvement in the outcome of the care of such patients, and we still aim to improve our care provision to diabetic patients.

At present, the Diabetic Foot Clinic is run by an experienced team of surgeons and nurses. The clinic runs all week for dressing changes, except Friday. On Mondays & Thursdays the diabetic care team surgeon is available to see patients with no appointments required.

Four of these operating rooms are used daily by our department  for open surgical, minimal invasive and urological procedures. One operating room is utilized for emergency surgery on a 24 hour basis. There are two additional operating theaters in casualty/emergency department which are devoted on a 24 hour basis for minor surgical procedures, ambulatory surgery and emergency trauma patients. Each operating room has its own anaesthesia room and advanced anaesthesia equipment with monitoring facilities, modern operating lights and latest available theater equipment. High resolution cameras and monitors are available for minimal invasive surgeries.

There is availability for intra-operative imaging and endoscopic systems for specific surgical procedures and facilities for recording of operative procedures. This is also supported by well equipped recovery rooms for post operative patients with advanced monitoring equipment available for immediate postoperative care.

The opearting suite is linked to the conference room and lecture theater/Auditorium of the hospital by an integrated system with facilities for conducting live audio-visual presentations/ video conferncing and discussion. 

Our department is planning along with the Ministry of Health to upgrade our current operating suite to a state of the art image integrated OR system which will have integration of multiple new technologies. Upgrading of these operating rooms are an example of our commitment to increasing the range and safety of minimally invasive and open operative procedures for our patients.
