Diagnosis - ACL & MCL tear - operative (arthroscopic) ligament reconstruction
I tore my right ACL and MCL last February 2017 and as a skateboarder who competes in the amateur league in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, I had to be healthy and in top condition all the time. Having a torn ACL would mean a career ending injury in skating. Thankfully Dr. Hans Fuchs and his team of professionals did such a remarkable job on my ACL and MCL reconstruction, that 6 weeks into the surgery, I am able to jog and jump. I am recovering at such a fast pace that I will be able to skate again after 10months. Right now, two months post-surgery my knee is at 80-85%, and beginning to feel like normal again.
Diagnosis – Complicated fracture of the distal tibia/pilon - External fixator, plate fixation.
Dr. Hans did a 2 stages operation for my brother to fix his rare ankle fractures. From the first day my brother was transferred under his care, we faced kindness and excellent communication skills from his side and his team also.
My brother was relaxed and following his orders, because he is sure that this is for his sake.
It was really a critical time and difficult decision for us to go for the surgery few days before my brother’s marriage, but we were sure that Dr. Hans will do it just perfectly.
Directly after each surgery, he explained to us what was exactly done during the procedure and the current situation. Again after the surgery, he came for regular visits to his patient in the ward at least twice daily. Dr. Hans was very friendly with my brother and my whole family members and he also became a great friend to me and my entire family.
I recommend Dr. Hans for any type of complicated orthopedic surgery. It is my honor and pleasure to know him.
Diagnosis – Complex fracture - dislocation right ankle and plate/screw fixation.
I am writing you this email to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the excellent service that you have rendered me as your patient. From the moment you came to see me for the first time I knew that I was in good hands. Your kindness, calmness and professionalism throughout the surgery and my recovery period are truly appreciated.
I will certainly be recommending your services and Burjeel hospital to everyone I know. It is hard to express my gratitude and I know my words fall short. I truly mean it when I say that Burjeel hospital can be proud to have you in their service.
My name is Mahwish Nauman. i was pregnant for the first time. I consulted Dr. Mneerva Khalil in Shamkha branch. She is so co-operative and I am very much satisfied from with her. She is a good natured and experienced doctor, mashallah. Thank you burjeel for giving good treatment in my pregnancy and inshallah in 2 months time, I will deliver at burjeel. Thank you burjeel.
Procedure – Comminuted fracture distal Tibia / Pilon - plate fixation.
I was in a severe pain, and you gave me relief, I was hopeless and you gave me hope, I was not able to move forward and you gave me the motive and strength. I had a severe fracture in my ankle. Dr. Hans Fuchs, as an artist, tenderly and professionally fixed it back.
Before I came to Burjeel, I went, to many hospitals in the city and had met many doctors, I saw in their eyes how they are reluctant to do the surgery as I insisted on my high expectations of getting well, healthy and walking normally again.
I planned to travel to Germany to do the surgery there, a friend of mine, whom I trust, recommended Dr. Fuchs, the friend said in a humorous way: instead of travelling to Germany, why do not you bring Germany here, Dr. Fuchs is a German orthopedic whom you should see to get the medical advice, and crystalize your final decision to fly or to stay?
This is what I did, I remember that day, when Dr.Fuchs saw me looking at the X-rays, and touching my swelling ankle, asking me when and how it happened. He looks into my eyes, and he said the magic Arabic word in a tender friendly way, HABEEBI, do not worry, you will be fine, you will be OK, and walk again.
I am planning to fly to Germany to get the Surgery there, I said, No need, for this fracture you don’t need to travel to Germany as I am happy to fix here in Burjeel hospital.
I will never forget the hard minutes before the operation, he came, and he noticed the fear and anxiety in my eyes, the tension in my face which I could not hide. He smiled, gave me hug and said me: do not worry you are in safe hands, pointing at some of his staff; they are the best team.
Thanks Dr. Hans Fuchs, Charlie and the other nurses - I have started life again after I was floundering physically and emotionally. Each time when I came for follow up, Dr.Fuchs explained to me what is going on, the improvement, inside my ankle; the awareness, knowledge and encouragement he gave me made me stronger and stuck to his instructions to get rehabilitated and resume my work and life.
I would like to thank the Burjeel Management, Dr.Fuchs and his skillful team.
I've felt always welcomed and in safe hands. I do recommended the hospital to all people I know , as I am sure that the same level represented by Dr.Fuchs and his team is available in other sections and specialties.
May God bless you, I am proud that Abu Dhabi has such advanced hospital like the Burjeel.
