Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) Bone and Joint Center will again host two international surgeons from France and the UK in November and December. During their stay and as done during their previous visits to HMC, both surgeons will perform surgeries, attend to patients and diagnose relevant cases.

Dr. Marius Scarlat, a consultant shoulder and elbow surgeon from France will visit HMC from 25 November to 1 December. He will attend to patients already pre-booked at the Bone and Joint Center’s outpatient clinic on 25 and 29 November. During the other days of his visit he will be dedicated to surgical operations. Dr. Duncan Whitwell, a consultant knee and reconstructive surgeon from the UK, will be visiting from 18 to 23 December. He will attend to pre-booked patients on 20 and 21 December and conduct surgical operations during the rest of his visit.

The Bone and Joint Center would like to urge all patients who have been seen previously by either Dr. Scarlat or Dr. Whitwell to confirm their follow-up appointments, in order to ensure that all tests, investigations, or scans required have been made ahead of their appointments. Patients can confirm their appointments by contacting the Bone and Joint Center during working hours. Other patients wishing to see either of these consultant surgeons can contact the center on 40411150, 40411151 or 40411152 to book an appointment.

Patients are advised to note that Dr. Scarlat will only see those patients with shoulder or elbow problems while Dr. Whitwell will only be able to see patients with knee or pelvis problems.
