Tracheostomy Procedures

A tracheostomy is a surgical procedure that involves creating an opening in the neck, known as a stoma, to access the trachea (windpipe). This procedure is typically performed when a patient has difficulty breathing due to an obstruction in the upper airway or when mechanical ventilation is required for an extended period of time.

During a tracheostomy, a small incision is made in the neck, and a tube is inserted into the trachea through the stoma. This tube, called a tracheostomy tube, allows air to bypass the upper airway and reach the lungs directly. It can also be connected to a ventilator to assist with breathing.

Tracheostomy can be performed using a variety of techniques, including open surgery and minimally invasive techniques (MIS). In open surgery, a larger incision is made in the neck, while in MIS, smaller incisions are made, and a laparoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light) and other specialized instruments are used to perform the surgery.

Tracheostomy is a relatively safe and effective procedure, but it is not without risks. Complications can include bleeding, infection, damage to surrounding structures, and difficulty speaking or swallowing. Patients who undergo tracheostomy may also require ongoing care and monitoring to prevent complications and ensure proper healing.

In Dubai, tracheostomy is typically performed by highly trained thoracic surgeons who specialize in the treatment of conditions affecting the trachea and other thoracic structures. The surgeons at the Dubai Thoracic Surgery Clinic, located at the Dr. Rami Hamed Center, are experienced in performing tracheostomies using both open and MIS techniques. They work closely with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care for patients undergoing this procedure.
