Obstetrics & Gynecology: Being at the forefront – bringing new life into the world

The Obstetrics and Gynecology floor of the Charlotte R. Bloomberg Mother & Child Centre at Hadassah Ein Kerem combines comfort and intimacy with state of the art technology.

For the first time in Jerusalem: Through a complex laser procedure, guided by a sophisticated ultrasound machine, twin fetuses who shared a blood vessel were successfully separated by Hadassah specialists in fetal medicine. The condition can prove fatal if the shared blood vessel favors one twin over the other. By inserting a small scope fitted with a very thin laser fiber into the mother’s uterus, doctors were able to burn the vessels and create a separate connection to the placenta for each fetus. The twins are developing normally.
