Patients can avail of transoral incisionless fundoplication treatments for gastroesophageal reflux disease and heartburn, as well as endoscopic submucosal dissection, video capsule endoscopy and esophageal manometry for assessing oesophageal contractions and swallowing issues.
Additionally, the centre offers coordinated services for weight management and the Hydrogen Breath Test for diagnosing food intolerances.
The team of experts at the new centre also includes Drs Mazn Karmo, Tarek Fathi Nasser and Huda Kataa, all of whom are gastroenterology consultants, along with Dr Krish Venkatesh, a paediatric gastroenterology consultant.
Dr Jazzar said: “Our experienced medical professionals employ a multidisciplinary approach for diagnosis and offer comprehensive solutions. The clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic tools to assess and address the identified issues.”
The addition of the Jazzar Gastrointestinal & Liver Disease Center to Burjeel Holdings’ network marks a significant expansion of its complex care offerings, which already encompass specialities such as orthopaedics, foetal medicine, advanced gynaecology, and head and neck disorders.
In July last year, Burjeel received a contract to operate and manage ADNOC’s Al Dhannah Hospital in Abu Dhabi’s Al Dhafra region.
