Developed over more than a decade by world renowned physician Prof. Shai Efrati, his research team at Sagol School of Neuroscience at Shamir Medical Center in Israel, and the Aviv team, the Aviv Medical Program is a transformative treatment scientifically proven to reverse physical and cognitive decline caused by the aging process.  Combining Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) with the latest neuroscience, physiology research and the most advanced diagnostic imaging technology, there is no other programme in the world using the unique protocol delivered by Aviv Clinics.

“Redefining what is possible in human medical science has been a driver for our ongoing research, and one that has resulted in creating unique protocols that demonstrate cellular-level reversal of the key markers of aging,” said Prof. Efrati. “Dubai is becoming a globally recognised centre for technological innovation in all sectors, including healthcare. It’s a market that is ready for the level of advanced medical science that Aviv Clinics provides.”  

Awadh Al Ketbi, Director General of the Dubai Health Authority, added: “The opening of Aviv Clinics in Dubai adds a new dimension to the advanced, world-class healthcare infrastructure in Dubai and the UAE. The adoption of innovative, smart technologies in healthcare delivery supports the UAE’s vision to become a global hub for cutting-edge innovation in healthcare”.

Highlighting the UAE’s vision 2021 to become a global hub for cutting-edge innovation in diverse sectors, including both curative and preventative health, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman of Dubai Chamber of International Trade and Chairman of DP World said: “Innovation is embedded in the DNA of the UAE, and has enabled Dubai to become a key location in global trade across all sectors, and attract some of the world’s most innovative and smart solutions. The opening today of a pioneering medical science facility that demonstrates the same approach is testament to the bold and ambitious environment Dubai’s vision has created.” 

The clinic in JLT is a purpose-built facility and will benefit from its strategic location.

Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, DMCC, said: “DMCC is home to some of Dubai’s most innovative companies and individuals shaping the future of tomorrow. We are delighted that our Jumeirah Lakes Towers community has been selected as the setting for the world-class Aviv Clinics Dubai. This innovative collaboration reflects the potential of the relationship between the United Arab Emirates and Israel, and Dubai’s ability to attract expert minds. Those searching for the future can find it in Dubai, and this is just one of the reasons why the emirate is the perfect location for the new era of healthcare innovation,”.

The opening of Aviv Clinics Dubai stands as an important example of successful collaboration between UAE and Israel, made possible by the Abrahams Accord agreement last year.

The newly appointed Consul General for Israel in Dubai, Ilan Stzulman Starosta said: “The strengthening of bilateral cooperation and investment in key areas that include food, security and medicine is now well underway. Aviv Clinics Dubai is an excellent demonstration of mutual success, and the increasingly important role innovation and advancement in healthcare plays in both societies. We are looking forward to many more future collaborations across sectors with the UAE.”

Aviv Clinics Dubai is manned by an international team of physicians, physiologists, neuropsychologists, nurses, experts in the aging process and data scientists at the forefront of medical science and technology.  The 7,000 square meter facility in JLT, Dubai is the second Aviv Clinic in the world, the first having opened in Florida, USA in 2020.
