Malo Clinic and Malo Clinic Spa to Open at the Venetian(R)-Macao-Resort-Hotel

MACAU, July 7 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Macau stakes its claim as a lifestyle, leisure and now, wellness destination with the opening of the MALO CLINIC and MALO CLINIC SPA at The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel in early 2009. Both companies of MALO CLINIC Health Group are set to be one of the largest facilities of its kind in Asia offering a comprehensive array of medical treatments and spa services.

It will cover a total area of approximately 84,400 square feet, with six operating theaters, 58 luxurious spa rooms, state-of-the-art wet and hydro facilities, a world class hair salon and more. A staff size of over 50 medical doctors and 100 spa therapists will be recruited from all over the world.

"We are thrilled with the potential in Asia, and the opening of this clinic represents our foothold into this dynamic market," says founder Dr. Paulo Malo. With its location in the Venetian Macao Resort Hotel, MALO CLINIC is targeting a variety of market segments attracted to the integrated resort's range of offerings and facilities. From MICE visitors wanting an executive health check-up while on business, to gamers and punters looking to add a world-class health and wellness experience to their leisure activities, MALO CLINIC will provide a wide range of services to rival some of the most established medical facilities in the world.

MALO CLINIC at The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel represents Dr Malo's first foray into Asia. The MALO CLINIC Health Group, based in Lisbon, currently operates over 14 mega clinics throughout Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia -- open and under construction. MALO CLINIC is world's number one in Fixed Oral Rehabilitation and its educational centre offers training programs for over 3,500 dental professionals annually on the latest developments and technologies in oral rehabilitation of dental implants.


Medical out-patient services to be offered include general surgery: Cardiology, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology, Plastic Surgery, Stomatology, Dental Medicine, Internal Medicine, Paediatrics, Urology, Gynaecology, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Physical Therapy and Esthetics.

The clinic will feature the most advanced medical equipment and diagnostic technologies available to date. These include MRI, ophthalmologic laser and digital mammography, among others.

But perhaps one of the hallmarks of the MALO CLINIC will be its Dental Medicine, because its founder, Dr Paulo Malo is a world renowned dental surgeon credited for pioneering the surgical technique All-on-4 and the fixed prosthesis MALO CLINIC Bridge, both recognized as significant advances in the field of oral rehabilitation.

The dental services will include Oral Surgery, Implantology and Periodontology, Prosthodontics, Dentistry, Pediatric dentistry, Oral hygiene, Radiology, Endodontics and Orthodontics.

For convenience and comfort independent male and female rest areas are located above the changing room to provide a very private haven.
