Patient-centered Care

Operation Smile is known to provide free reconstructive surgeries for patients with facial deformities, especially with cleft lips and palates. But cleft care is not just surgery. It involves a lot of components from finding the patients, making sure they survive the first months of their life and are fit for surgery, ensuring they safely arrive at the mission site and are prepared for surgery and receive the necessary follow-up care.  The Operation Smile team in the UAE is making the patient experience before, during and after surgery a top priority.

Increasing Surgical Capacity

Operation Smile UAE is engaging more hospitals and clinics throughout the UAE in order to increase comprehensive care for patients in all seven Emirates.
