Default Do you trust doctors in Dubai?

I've been told I need an operation (I'm not saying what kind ), and I am worried about going under the knife in a foreign country. There have been a few stories about botched surgery in the papers of late as well. It would only be a 45-minute job, but I'm still nervous.

Anyone been under the knife here?

Dont worry, the risk of any complications during a penile enlargement operation are very small.
This is due to major advances in the field of micro surgery.





all joking apart...I dont know anyone who has had an op here...sorry mate

I know quite a few people that have had plastic surgery here and they have all lived to tell the tale. That said .. I go elsewhere for my ops

I find a pic of Her Majesty squatting naked over a glass coffee table usually does the trick.

Depends how much I've had to drink, mind.

Jimmy, I think you will be safe enough to go under the knife, DH has a total thyroidectomy under the care of Dr Persha at the American Hospital. He is an excellent surgeon. I got my surgeon mate in the UK to check him out!

considering that most of the docs here have the same training from the same schools as docs in the UK, it isnt any different from going under than in the UK. Yes there are some horror stories but then again the NHS has its fair share of them as well.
