Burjeel Medical City is proud to bring the HoloLens technology to its operating rooms for the first time in the UAE.

The pioneering surgery was performed by the doctors at VPS Healthcare’s Burjeel Medical City. The team led by Dr. Rashed Al Shaeel, Head of Orthopedics at the hospital and Dr. Jaber AlKhyeli, Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon, used the ‘HoloLens’ headset developed by Microsoft to perform one-hour-long knee surgery on an Emirati patient.
