Neurosurgeons specialize in disorders of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system in children and adults. Our professionally trained crews are obliged to serve their patients with the highest of international standards, utilizing the most advanced equipment, technology and research.
This field incorporates a number of specialization services:
Microsurgery of brain tumors and tumors of the skull base.
Treatment for all types of head and spinal cord injuries.
Vascular surgery for aneurysms and vascular malformations.
Pituitary surgery using the trans-sphenoidal technique, via one nostril only.
Surgery of all segments of the spinal cord: anterior and posterior approaches for disc removal, vertebrate transplants, implants and other techniques for fusing the vertebrae.
Treatments for tumors and defects in the spinal cord and spinal column.
Endoscopic and Endoscopic assisted brain surgery – especially for tumors of the ventricles and treatment for hydrocephalus.
Treatment for hydrocephalus using various shunting techniques and hardware.
Insertion of Vagal stimulating electrodes for treatment of severe epilepsy.
Surgery of the peripheral nerves and brachial plexus.
Functional neurosurgery, especially for epilepsy.
All types of pediatric neurosurgery.
A well established team approach comprising neurosurgeons, ENT surgeons and plastic surgeons are combined to provide optimal therapy for patients with tumors and vascular lesions of the skull base. The teams are renowned for their experience in this difficult and challenging field and for the excellent results of surgery.
Of particular interest are meningiomas of the skull base, acoustic neurinomas, pituitary adenomas and aneurysms of the anterior and posterior cerebral circulation.
Close cooperation with colleagues in neuro-oncolgy, neuroradiology, neuropathology and radiation oncology make this the most comprehensive and advanced service for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with brain tumors. Recognized world wide, these services are equipped with cutting edge technology, including intraoperative computerized navigation, intraoperative cortical mapping and intraoperative MRI.
The Israeli neurosurgeons are active in several experimental clinical studies for the treatment of malignant gliomas. Israel is the only country outside of the USA to offer advanced delivery of chemotherapy across the blood-brain barrier.
Owing to the unfortunate combat history of Israel, a vast experience has been acquired with all aspects of the surgical, intensive care management and rehabilitation of patients with cranio-cerebral trauma, including a long tradition of clinical research in the field of neuroprotective drugs.
Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery
Israeli experts are experienced in all aspects of spinal surgery including trauma injuries, in-born defects, degenerative spinal diseases, spinal and spinal cord tumors.
