Dubai medical tourism, an industry of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), offers high-quality healthcare at very affordable prices. Dubai is home to the first Middle Eastern hospital accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI). It now boasts eleven hospitals with international accreditation, including a children’s hospital.
Although Arabic is the official language of Dubai, other languages are also spoken including Persian, Hindi, Tagalong, Chinese and English, the “lingua franca” that helps break the language barrier. Medical tourists to Dubai can expect first-class treatments such as laser eye surgery, cochlear implants, dermatology, bariatric surgery and dozens of other medical procedures.
