Burjeel Medical & Wellness Centre Is Now The Official Healthcare Partner For The UAE Football Association
(18 July 2016)


Burjeel Medical and Wellness Centre is proud to announce that it has been chosen as the healthcare partner for the prestigious UAE Football Association. The state-of-the art Centre recently conducted Pre Competition Medical Assessments (PCMAs) for the UAE’s first National and Junior football teams before the season commences in the coming months.

The schedule of examinations for the year commenced on the 28th June and concluded on 30th of June. The first batch of 30 players tested was from the National team; the second batch comprised players from the Junior team and their examinations were conducted on the 12th and 13th of July. The first group of players tested were from Dubai; the second group from Al Ain and the third group from Abu Dhabi. Tests will also be performed on 170 referees associated with UAEFA.

The PCMAs, conducted at Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery and Burjeel Medical and Wellness Centre, were carried out by experts in the field of sports medicine. Dr. Harold Vandershimdt, Specialist Orthopedic Surgeon, Specialized in Arthroscopic Surgery of Knee and Shoulder at Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery, explained that the assessment comprises a battery of tests, including musculoskeletal screening, medical screening such as Electrocardiography (ECG), echocardiogram (ECHO), blood tests, ophthalmic examination, dental test and other relevant tests.  

“These extensive series of tests are conducted to determine the players’ level of fitness and to investigate if there’s a need for medical intervention for a player/s prior to a competition. All of these are a preparation for the upcoming season’s first competition, which is scheduled to take place in September or October,” added Dr. Harold Vanderschimdt.

Football is a physically intense sport. These are therefore, crucial tests for sportsmen and go a long way in preventing injuries and ensuring top performance levels from players. Burjeel Medical & Wellness Centre and its team of experts are extremely privileged to be given the opportunity to work with the county’s premier football teams as UAEFA’s official healthcare partner said, Dr. Faisal Hayat, Chief Physiotherapist at Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery.

“The Centre is focused on the pursuit of excellence in sports medicine and orthopaedics. In keeping with that approach, we have a top notch sports medicine department that is equipped with heated pools, a gym and sports physiotherapy. We have the best facilities to cater to the country’s finest athletes,” added Dr. Faisal Hayat.
