The Al Jazeerah hospital in Abu Dhabi, UAE, is to open a high-tech spinal surgery unit by the end of the year. Speaking to the Khaleej Times, hospital director Ahmed Al Rumaithi said that the hospital will soon be able to offer free spinal operations, which often cost $100,000 and over in European or US clinics. The hospital performs 75 spinal operations per year and now hopes to become the country's centre for spinal surgery.
