Four Initiatives Working Together to Re-Imagine Surgery

The Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation is unique in its integrated approach to making surgery more precise, less invasive, and pain-free through four key initiatives:
  • Pain medicine -- To alleviate and eventually eliminate pain
  • Immunology -- To use a child’s own immune system to fight illness and cure disease
  • Bioengineering --To harness the full power of science and technology to make treatment more precise
  • Personalized medicine --To tailor treatment for every child depending on their own genetic makeup
