Surgery: Finding creative approaches & groundbreaking solutions

Our surgical staff has achieved international acclaim for lifesaving discoveries in medicine. Whether it’s busting blood clots in stroke patients or innovations in cardiac surgery, again and again they set the standard for new treatments.

The Surgical Centre in the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower comprises the most well-equipped and innovative operating theatres in the region. One operating room is reserved for emergencies; the others for neurosurgery, general, cardiothoracic, orthopedic, otolaryngology, vascular, pediatric, plastic and maxillofacial, and urological surgery.

An innovative procedure to remove cancerous tumors from a patient’s gastrointestinal tract was introduced at Hadassah’s Institute of Gastroenterology and Liver Diseases by a renowned visiting professor. With special instruments inserted through an endoscope, surgeons “peeled” the lesion from the gastrointestinal wall. The procedure was a Hadassah ‘first’ and led to the convening of an intensive two-day seminar for gastroenterology and liver experts from throughout Israel.
