Visiting Specialists

Dr Jussi Rantanen is the Head of our Orthopaedic Surgery Department and is based in Dubai. Jussi and our team of visiting surgeons have extensive experience, and between them specialise in each of the major joints and core orthopaedic areas.


Patients may have direct access to specialist orthopaedic surgeons. However, we recommend your initial consultation be with an UPANDRUNNING sports medicine doctor, so they can determine a diagnosis and triage you to the correct surgeon for optimal treatment and rapid recovery. Our sports medicine doctors will ensure that before you see a surgeon you will have had all the necessary investigations, tests and attempts at rehabilitation.


Our surgeons visit Dubai every 4 to 6 weeks and have both consulting and surgery sessions. When you see the surgeon for a consultation, if surgery is recommended, this will usually be scheduled for the following month’s visit. If the condition is acute and surgery needs to be immediate, this can also be accommodated.

The full admission process, as well as pre-habilitation, post-surgery rehabilitation and post-operative instructions, will be fully explained to you at the time of consultation.
