Knee & shoulder issues and injuries on the hands and feet are just some of the common issues that we face as we grow older, and we aren’t getting younger any time soon.
Thankfully, Dubai is home to some of the most technically-skilled orthopedic doctors in the world. Couple this with technologically advanced medical equipment, and we can rest assured that these kinds of pains are solvable.
So, we scoured the city to give you the best orthopedic doctors. We also included the factors we considered in choosing.
How much does going to an orthopedic doctor in Dubai cost?
The cost of going to an orthopedic doctor depends on whether you are going in for a procedure or for a regular check-up. The doctor’s experience and qualifications also play a part in the fee.
Usually, consultations can go from AED100 to AED600, and procedures usually cost around AED16,000.
The Best Orthopedic Doctors in Dubai
Before we get right into our top picks for the best orthopedic doctors in Dubai, here are the factors we considered for our entries on this list:
1. Dr. Omar Sabri
|SERVICES||Knee Replacement Surgery, Poly-Trauma Injury Treatment
Sports Injury Treatment, Hip & Shoulder Replacement Surgery
|ADDRESS||Hessa Street 331 West, Al Barsha 3, Exit 36 Sheikh Zayed Road, Opposite American School - Dubai - United Arab Emirates|
|OPERATING HOURS||Open 24/7|
|Range of Procedures||★★★★☆ (4/5)|
Head of the orthopedic department at the Saudi German Hospital Dubai and also works as a consultant surgeon, Dr. Omar Sabri is one of the few surgeons who employ technologically advanced equipment in the operating room.
His 20 years of experience and practice have brought him to Egypt, the USA, and the UK.
But what really impressed us with Dr. Sabri’s experience is that he was trained under the guidance of Dr. David Helfet, a world-renowned name in trauma and pelvic surgery.
And what sets him apart when it comes to the operating room is that he does robot-assisted surgeries, VR training, and healthcare innovation.
His embrace of medical progress has earned him a nomination for the Royal College of Surgeons Award for Innovation in Surgical Education.
And while this is his sole award, and he isn’t the most decorated surgeon, we love that his willingness to continuously push the boundaries of healthcare is unending.
We appreciate a doctor that is willing to learn new techniques and adopt new technologies to provide better service.
His treatments for knee replacement include robot-assisted knee & hip surgeries, hip arthroplasty, pelvic & acetabular trauma surgery, and knee sports injury treatments.
While we think this is a strong set of treatments, we were hoping to find surgical and nonsurgical treatments outside of the knee and hips, for a more holistic service.
And while most common knee-related injuries often impact these body parts, we think that he could do better in expanding his skills to other large muscle groups.
Dr. Omar is such an amazing doctor
“I did an operation with Dr. Omar Sabry the orthopedic. He is simply 🤩. I really recommend this doctor to anyone who has a problem with any orthopedic issues. He is so patient has a smiley face and listens to all your complaints then tells you his point of view with honesty not for business as I found with the other doctors. The hospital staff is all friendly and nice. The food is delicious although I didn’t try it my nanny did😜 and told me her idea. The hospital is clean but the furniture is a bit old.” -Rasha Saadeldin, Google Reviews
Saw my recovery from beginning to end
“Physiotherapy department CSR assisted me from the beginning of my session till the end of my appointment. The therapist is very accommodating though they are always fully booked for a week, they give me a call for availability and accommodated me. Thank you for the excellent service.” -Katherine Cababan, Google Reviews
2. Dr. Ravi Nayak
|SERVICES||Knee Replacement Surgery, ACL Reconstruction, Sports Injury Treatment
Hip & Shoulder Replacement Surgery
|ADDRESS||Al Nahda 2 Building - Room No. 124, NMC Specialty Hospital, Al Nahda 2 Off Amman Street, Opp Bait Al Kheir - Dubai|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 55 161 3857|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday to Saturday: 9 am - 9 pm|
|Range of Procedures||★★★★☆ (4/5)|
Dr. Ravi Nayak is a well-known international award-winning orthopedic surgeon with training at centers of excellence in the USA, Germany, and India.
He’s a recipient of the International Surgical Skills Scholar Award in the USA and the AO Fellowship from Switzerland, so it’s undeniable that Dr. Nayak is a well-decorated surgeon with unrivaled skills.
We love that his dedication to orthopedia has gotten him to practice all over the world and show the true excellence of his skills in the operating room.
His procedures when it comes to orthopedic issues are quite varied. Dr. Nayak can redo knee replacements, knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction, shoulder replacement, and many more.
However, Dr. Nayak seems to avoid one critical part of orthopedia, and that is the spine. We would have wanted at least some common procedures related to this part because it is such a vital part of the body.
Despite that, he is one of the most skilled orthopedics in the city of Dubai, especially when it comes to knee & shoulder replacements.
However, he is more old school in terms of employing techniques and executing procedures with the type of equipment he has always worked with.
And while there is no problem with this, it also means that the procedures and treatments he offers are never going to get better.
Dr. Ravi is amazing!
“Dr. Ravi did an excellent job in reconstructing my ACL and repairing my meniscus a few days ago. I found him while searching for a well-trusted orthopedic surgeon in Dubai and it was a perfect decision to choose him from others. He is a good listener and will explain everything whatever the patient needs or wants to know. He is very detailed and monitors his patient very well from pre-ops to post-ops. He assures to be the last person to personally check the patient before discharge. I’m very satisfied with my knee operation and have high hopes of fast recovery with Dr. Ravi’s guidance.” -Rafael Alfonso, Google Reviews
We cannot thank him enough for the excellent job he did
“Dr. Ravi Nayak from NMC Speciality Hospital performed knee replacement surgery on our mum Mrs. Cynthia Dias in June 2022. A big Thank You to Dr. Ravi Nayak for the successful surgery. We cannot thank you enough for the excellent care you provided before and after the surgery and were always ready to help with any queries we had. Thank you for being the most caring, gentle, and understanding Doctor.
Your nurses and staff too were extremely helpful and supportive whenever we needed them or had any questions 24 x 7.
My mum’s recovery is amazing. She could stand up with help the next day. Today after a month our mum is walking with the help of a stick and can climb the stairs too.
I would highly recommend Dr. Ravi Nayak, Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon” -Velda Dias, Google Reviews
3. Dr. Farid Ghasemzadeh Mojaveri
|SERVICES||Knee Replacement Surgery, Hip Injury Treatment, Foot & Ankle Injury Treatment
Shoulder & Elbow Injury Treatment, Spine Injury Treatment
|ADDRESS||East Exit - Alkhail Street - Al Marabea' St - Dubai Hills - Dubai, United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 50 871 2847|
|OPERATING HOURS||Saturday to Thursday: 8 am - 6 pm|
|Range of Procedures||★★★★★ (5/5)|
Dr. Farid Gasemzadeh Mojaveri treated more than 1,000 bilateral knee replacements throughout his career of more than 25 years.
With the majority of his education done in Iran, Dr. Mojaveri did his fellowship in osteosynthesis in Calgary, Canada.
On top of that, he has made a good international reputation for himself and for the hospital, he’s currently working at, the Iranian Hospital, where he has been working since 2004.
However, for a man with a long career, we were disappointed to see that he doesn’t have any awards to show for it.
Despite that, the number of successful operations he has done more than makes up for it.
He has conducted more than 1200 primary and revision knee and hip replacements, and more than 2500 arthroscopic knee operations, including ACL reconstruction.
And besides the treatments we’ve already mentioned, Dr. Mojaveri has also recently started including stem cell therapy in his knee-related treatments, specifically called Stromal Vascular Fraction Therapy.
His experience makes him an incomparable figure in knee replacement surgeries, and the range of treatments he can perform is proof of that.
On top of that, he also does more than just knee-replacement surgeries. Dr. Mojaveri also conducts hip, shoulders, elbow, spine, hand, and foot-related treatments for injuries and disorders.
However, while he employs advanced techniques in his procedures, there is nothing special about his equipment, rather than investing in technology that would make his job easier and more accurate.
Thank you, Dr. Farid,
“I had the 1st stage meniscus degeneration issue with my right knee since 2018 and was having physiotherapy sessions twice per year since then as the pain was unbearable. On 05.05.2020 I had PRP therapy done by Dr. Farid Ghasemzadeh. It is a procedure of injecting platelet-rich plasma into the knee. It takes less than 5 mins to be done. 9 months have passed since the day of the injection and I cannot express my happiness in being relieved from the 2 years of pain I had. Thank you Doctor Farid for the professionalism. God bless you!” -Samira Ismayilova, Google Reviews
I highly recommend him
“My husband’s ACL repair surgery was done by Dr. Farid Ghasemzadeh. I found him on Google when I searched for the best knee surgeon in Dubai. I feel blessed that he was there as I could not have asked for a better Orthopedic Surgeon. I recommend him to anyone seeking an Orthopedic surgeon! Highly Recommended !” -Garima Maan, Google Reviews
4. Dr. Shine Ashokan
|SERVICES||Knee Replacement Surgery, Sports Medicine, Hip & Shoulder Replacement Surgery|
|ADDRESS||King's College Hospital Dubai, Orthopedic Clinic Al Khail Road, Al Marabea East Exit Dubai Hills - Dubai|
|OPERATING HOURS||Every day: 9 am - 5 pm|
|Range of Procedures||★★★★★ (5/5)|
An internationally sought orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Shine Ashokan has had the honor of treating the different royal families of the UAE.
With over 20 years of experience, he obtained a fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons in general surgery, an elite fellowship for surgeons.
On top of that, he is a British board-certified surgeon that completed his specialist training in trauma and orthopedic surgery in Great Britain.
And while he doesn’t have any awards under his belt, his reputation for providing excellent care to his patients precedes him.
Besides that, his personalized approach to his patients has led to great results that have allowed them to return back to a good level of physical activity and quality of life.
When it comes to his range of procedures, Dr. Ashokan specializes in joint replacement for the knees, hips, and shoulders, sports injuries, and fractures on the hands, shoulders, feet, and limbs.
Dr. Ashokan also does more than just knee replacement surgeries. Besides hip and shoulder replacement, he also does sports medicine and treats joint conditions.
He has an amazing set of services that don’t just put him in one box. His diversified specializations make him such a versatile doctor.
On top of that, he works at King’s College Hospital Dubai, which is supported by an orthopedic department with state-of-the-art equipment. It even has UAE’s first EOS imaging machine.
Dr. Shine resolved my pain with precision
“Extremely satisfied with the experience. Dr. Shine is n.1 in shoulder treatment and he resolved my situation with precision and skills.
I am a surgeon as well myself and my right shoulder was seriously damaged. I was worried since the functionality is important for my job but only after a few weeks, I was able to go back to work (with a few limitations of course). The pain was minimal and only in the first days.
The Rehab program was well done.
I will recommend dr Shine to everyone without hesitation.” -Matteo Vigo, Google Reviews
Very professional and kind
“Dr. Shine performed an ACL reconstruction on my right knee, and from our first meeting, I knew he was the guy to do it. He understands the world of sports and how important a quick return to fitness and full recovery of performance is. He did a great job and I was able to begin rehab and walk on my knee immediately after the operation.
Very professional, kind, and caring.” -Mikkel Junkuhn Petersen, Google Reviews
5. Dr. Rik Kundra
|SERVICES||Knee Replacement Surgery, Sports Injury Treatment, Arthritis Treatment, ACL Reconstruction|
|ADDRESS||Mediclinic Parkview Hospital, Umm Suqeim Street, Al Barsha South Dubai United Arab Emirates, 51122|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 52 774 0818|
|OPERATING HOURS||Sunday to Thursday: 9 am - 5 pm|
|Range of Procedures||★★★★★ (5/5)|
Specializing in knee joint preservation, biologic knee reconstruction, and complex knee disorders, Dr. Rik Kundra is widely respected by the athletic community for the work he’s done.
He is a member of numerous European surgical associations such as the British Association for Surgery of the Knee, and the European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery, and Arthroscopy.
While he’s not the most decorated surgeon, Dr. Kundra is well-recognized within the international orthopedic committee.
His more than 19 years of experience have led him to specialize in the latest minimally invasive, bone-preserving, and recuperation-enhancing trends in knee replacement surgery.
We love that he has such a strong range of treatments related to the knees, making him one of the more versatile knee surgeons on our list.
However, Dr. Rik Kundra’s other treatments only include sports injury treatments and arthritis treatments.
It was disappointing to see a doctor who is interested in minimally invasive procedures not branching out of knee-related treatments.
On top of that, his minimally invasive procedures limit him to a certain set of equipment that puts him behind other orthopedic surgeons in Dubai.
Despite that, his niche in these kinds of procedures makes him a highly sought-after orthopedic doctor, especially for athletes who can’t afford to have so much downtime for recovery.
I definitely recommend Dr. Rik
“Dr. Rik performed a total knee replacement for me 3 months ago. I am very pleased with the results. I am walking without pain; there is a mild discomfort going up or down stairs but I expect that to decrease as more time passes. For this surgery, you should expect pain for the first month, especially the first two weeks. There is consistent improvement during the second month. After that, it is a matter of improving strength and flexibility. There will be some discomfort but progress is noticeable and consistent. I recommend Dr. Rik to anyone considering a knee replacement. I also highly recommend Mediclinic Parkview, in Dubai.” -Hull Belmore, Google Reviews
Dr. Rik is such a great doctor
“I went to Dr. Kundra with knee pain. It turned out to be torn meniscus. He performed surgery and repaired my knee. 1 post-surgery surgery I’m already able to cycle outside. Dr. Rik is very professional, and precise, with the latest knowledge and true interest in patients’ wellbeing. Highly recommended! He was always there for me, especially in the beginning right after the surgery when I had my worries and doubts. He always replied to my messages and cleared up everything for me so I could be in peace. Dr. Rik is a great doctor with up-to-date practice.” -Eva Dvorackova, Google Reviews
