Burjeel Holdings Launches Advanced Gynecology Institute to Offer Complex Care Solutions for Women

The institute at Burjeel Medical City in collaboration with IFEM Endo marks a significant milestone in advancing women’s healthcare in the region.



 Burjeel Holdings (“Burjeel” or “the Group”), a leading ADX-listed Healthcare Services Provider in the UAE and MENA, today announced the launch of the Advanced Gynecology Institute, fostering the provision of complex care solutions for women’s healthcare in the region. 

Located at Burjeel’s flagship 1.2 million square feet hospital, Burjeel Medical City, the Advanced Gynecology Institute is designed to offer timely, sophisticated, and multidisciplinary healthcare solutions to women of all ages. The launch of the institute comes just months after the hospital joined hands with the globally renowned Franco-European Multidisciplinary Institute of Endometriosis Academy (IFEM Endo).

The institute was inaugurated by H.E. Dr. Maitha Bint Salem Al Shamsi, Minister of State, UAE Government, during a ceremony held at Burjeel Medical City. The inaugural ceremony was also attended by Dr. Ghuwaya Al Neyadi, Non-Executive Director at Burjeel Holdings, H.E. Nora Al Mareikhi, Chairwoman of Hemmah, and Professor Dr. Sherine Farouk, Associate Provost of Academic Projects, Abu Dhabi University, along with senior management officials from Burjeel Holdings.

Three specialized clinics of the hospital – Gynecological Oncology, IFEM Endo Middle East Clinic, and Complex Gynecology Care – will come under the newly formed institute. It will offer advanced and comprehensive care including gynecological surgeries, minimally invasive procedures, and complex gynecology care for a wide range of conditions, including menorrhagia, fibroids, and benign ovarian masses. One of the key specialties of the institute is its cutting-edge offerings for endometriosis, which, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), affects roughly 10% of reproductive-age women and girls globally. 

The expert team will also be involved in clinical research and training, which will broaden the horizons of the region’s complex gynecology and gynecologic cancer care. 

Professor Horace Roman, a renowned endometriosis surgeon and founding member of IFEM Endo, will lead the institute, supported by a team of highly qualified gynecologists, obstetricians, oncologists, and other healthcare professionals. Dr. Benjamin Merlot, Consultant – Obstetrics and Gynecology and founding member of IFEM Endo, along with Dr. Sandesh Kade Specialist – Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Monica Chauhan, Specialist – Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Dr. Jafaru Abu, Consultant Gynecological Oncology Surgery, all from Burjeel Medical City’s existing highly experienced team, are other members of the institute’s leadership team.
