​Overview of the Gynecology and Gynecology Surgery Program 

The Gynecology and Gynecology Surgery Program at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi provides women with comprehensive care for a wide range of gynecologic conditions, from common routine screening to complex cases and surgeries.

Under the Surgical Subspecialties Institute, our Gynecologists are experts in their field, who collaborate with clinicians in radiology, urology, colorectal and general surgery, genetics, oncology, and physical therapy to provide patients with the highest quality of care. 

Our highly trained team provide services you can count, supporting you from adolescence to menopause and beyond.  

Our team-based approach puts you at the center of your care.  We partner with our patients to find medical and surgical solutions, that are right for you. 

The Gynecology Surgery program offers advanced minimally invasive procedures including laparoscopic, robotic, and hysteroscopic surgeries, in addition to traditional laparotomy (open) surgery.  Minimally invasive surgeries can lessen pain, reduce hospital stays, and shorten recovery time.
