Al Shifa Hospital backs Kuwait expo
Kuwait, April 3, 2012
Dar Al Shifa Hospital, a leading private hospital in Kuwait, has announced that it is the silver sponsor of the upcoming Kuwait Medica 2012 Conference & Exhibition.
Dr Mohamed Wagih El-Deeb, head of ophthalmology department at Dar Al Shifa Hospital, and Dr Muhammad Al Azemi, consultant in nephrology, blood pressure and internal medicine, will be participating in the Health Awareness Camp at the conference.
They will also be available for general consultation from 5 to 9 pm.
Dr El-Deeb said: “The lasik procedure is quickly gaining momentum as a popular means of dealing with weak eyesight amongst all ages.”
“Naturally the technology and methodology of lasik is also changing at a fast pace. I believe that all patients must be well-informed about their conditions and treatments, which is why it is important for us at Dar Al Shifa Hospital to be present at Kuwait Medica.”
Dr El-Deeb holds a PhD in ophthalmology, and he is also an associate professor of Ophthalmology at Cairo University, a fellow of Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh as well as Alicante Institute of Refractive Surgery in Spain. He is also a member of the European and American Societies of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
Dr Al Azemi will be taking on diabetes and kidney diseases as main points of discussion during the health awareness camp.
“Though everyone knows of the diseases there are a lot of misconceptions, that can cause some to miss out on warning signs, and others who know they have the disease feel like there is no real cure,” he noted.
“True understanding of the diseases and treatment methods has improved significantly in the recent years, and it is great to be able to share that with a wider audience.”
Dr Al Azemi is a member of the Canadian board for Nephrology, the American Board for Blood Pressure and the American and Canadian Boards of Internal Medicine.
Other consultants from the dermatology and dietary department will also be participating in addition to the hospital training department. They will be available for free consultation and to showcase the different services offered by the hospital between 16 and 18 April during the allocated exhibition timings.
The Kuwait Medica 2012 Conference & Exhibition will be taking place from April 16 to 18 at Courtyard by Marriott. – TradeArabia News Service
