Back in 2010 and after working several years in the private sector both in and outside of Kuwait Dr. Quttainah had as vision of establishing an exclusive cosmetic surgery hub in one venue and under one roof. This center would have its own state of the art operating and recovery rooms as well as all the supporting disciplines. By 2012 the building was in motion and the center opened its doors in 2016 after 4 years of development and construction.
Quttainah Medical Center is the largest specialized cosmetic surgery center in the Middle East. Based in Shaab Al Bahri, Kuwait, it is located directly on the coast of the Arabian Gulf boasting unique and amazing seaside views. The Boutique Center has been independently designed by the owner himself and it has significantly changed the skyline of Kuwait. As soon as you enter there is a distinct originality and you will appreciate the fine details and stunning atmosphere.
