Catching a flu, or dealing with a mild sickness while living abroad is not as serious as requiring a major surgery. Many expatriates in Dubai prefer travelling back to their home country for such a procedure for one of two reasons. Either the procedure costs less back home, or the level of trust in surgeons in Dubai is not strong enough to warrant the procedure. However, with the help of patients willing to go under the knife in Dubai, and sharing their experiences and results here on DrFive, more patients in Dubai are looking to trust orthopedic surgeons performing surgeries in Dubai.
