Diaphragm Plication in Dubai at DRHC

Diaphragm plication, also known as diaphragmatic plication or diaphragmatic placation, is a surgical procedure used to treat diaphragmatic paralysis or eventration. These conditions involve the abnormal movement or function of the diaphragm, the muscle that separates the chest cavity from the abdominal cavity and plays a crucial role in breathing.

During a diaphragm plication procedure, the patient is usually placed under general anesthesia to ensure they are unconscious and do not feel any discomfort. The surgeon then makes an incision in the abdomen or chest and uses specialized instruments to fold or plicate the diaphragm. This helps to restore the normal shape and function of the diaphragm, allowing it to move more effectively and improve breathing.

Diaphragm plication is typically performed in cases where the diaphragm is paralyzed or weakened, leading to symptoms such as shortness of breath, fatigue, or difficulty breathing. The procedure can help improve lung function, reduce symptoms, and improve the patient's quality of life.

In Dubai, diaphragm plication is typically performed by healthcare providers who specialize in the treatment of thoracic conditions, such as thoracic surgeons. The healthcare providers at the Dubai Thoracic Surgery Clinic, located at the Dr. Rami Hamed Center, have extensive experience in performing diaphragm plication and work closely with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care for patients undergoing this procedure.
