UAE Hospital Achieves Milestone with Nation’s First Artificial Ligament Surgery using LARS Technique on Italian Patient

Medcare Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital in Dubai recently recorded the first successful Ligament Augmentation and Reconstruction Surgery (LARS) conducted in the United Arab Emirates. The landmark surgery was performed on Mr. Cosimo Danese, aged 44, an Italian executive chef and a passionate football player, who suffered a debilitating knee injury.

An upward trend in knee injuries in the UAE has been noted, with such incidents occurring five times more often than in other parts of the world. This advancement in orthopaedic care represents a significant step forward for the region’s healthcare sector.

Mr. Danese’s pursuit of football was interrupted by a serious knee injury during a tournament in Dubai back in 2020. Although he had undergone a conventional Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) operation using his tendon as the graft, Danese was left with persistent pain and restricted movement, which affected both his professional life and daily activities.

Seeking respite from his chronic knee condition, Mr. Danese turned to Medcare Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital where he received a state-of-the-art LARS artificial ligament therapy by Dr. Massimo Piracci, Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon. The artificial ligament surgery represented a novel approach in the region, providing new hope for patients facing similar orthopaedic challenges.
