Dr. Aldameh is a consultant surgeon with expertise in advanced laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgery, Upper GI and weight loss surgery, general thoracic surgery, upper GI and surgical oncology.

He holds a Fellowship from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) and a post-FRACS Advanced Fellowship from Harvard Medical School Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, USA in Minimally Invasive General Thoracic and Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery and Minimally Invasive Thoracic and Upper GI Surgical Oncology.

Dr. Aldameh was Chief of Surgical Oncology, Consultant Thoracic Surgeon and Surgical Oncologist at one of UAE’s busiest cancer programmes in Tawam Hospital, Al Ain. There, he performed minimally invasive thoracic and upper GI surgery, major intra-thoracic tumour resections, and achieved a number of milestones including the first splenorenal shunt and splenectomy of a 10kg tumour in a UAE hospital, the first laparoscopic gastrectomy at Tawam Hospital and the successful resection of the largest tumor in Tawam Hospital’s history.

His consultant practice is focused on minimally invasive surgery for weight loss, thoracic and major oncological tumour resections and his main area of interest is using minimally invasive techniques (less scars) for weight loss surgery , general intra-thoracic malignancy and upper GI surgical oncology utilising a combination of traditional, minimally invasive and robotic surgery and early detection and management of complex cancers. He also covers a broad base of general surgery cases, trauma, major soft tissue and visceral abdominal resections and major head and neck tumours.
