Today neurosurgery in Israel has reached unprecedented heights. In public and private clinics in the country with special responsibility relate to maintenance of patients with abnormalities of the brain and spinal cord, the peripheral nervous system. Preference is given to modern diagnostic techniques, minimally invasive operations. With the introduction of:

  • microscopes;
  • lasers;
  • focused radiation;
  • robots, as well as medical instruments such as stents, shunts and radiosurgery have changed dramatically therapeutic approaches to maintain patients.

Advances in the treatment of complex patients become well visible. Every year, the body of knowledge, experience and skill neurosurgeons there are new discoveries that serve to the benefit of human health.

What problems worked as a neurosurgeon in Israel?

Israeli doctors provide counseling and therapeutic support on a wide range of neurological diseases:

  • brain tumors;
  • brain aneurysms , stroke;
  • multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease;
  • brain malformations;
  • epilepsy and seizures;
  • trigeminal neuralgia;
  • degenerative diseases of the back (herniated disc, stenosis);
  • spinal instability;
  • hydrocephalus adults;
  • pinching the peripheral nerves in spinal injuries.

Team approach to the treatment and care of patients with neurological diseases and conditions gives consistently high success rates. When possible, in Israel using traditional treatment regimens and conservative approaches - injections, oral preparations, physiotherapy. In the diagnosis using the most advanced technology - MRI, CT, ultrasound, EMG, conduction study nerve, myelography and others.

Advances in neurosurgery Israel

Optimum results are obtained from a combination of experience and new technologies. Apply complex microscopic systems, modern stereotactic surgical navigation systems. The latest technology is equipped with operating theaters, intensive care units, where the staff is busy 24 hours a day. Care of patients in the neurosurgical departments is optimized with the help of a specially trained group of nurses.

Successfully introduced robotic installation into practice surgical operation. Special attention is given installation CyberKnife (CiberKnife). It allows you to accurately determine the location of the tumor in the body and to use high-energy X-ray source mounted on a robotic arm to deliver concentrated beams of radiation to tumors. This targeted technique allows the maximum amount of radiation directed to the tumor without damaging healthy tissue. It makes it possible to treat multiple tumors and lesions, without cuts, which had previously been diagnosed with inoperable.

Cyber ​​Knife is suitable for the treatment of:

  • brain tumors (glioma, meningioma, acoustic neuromas);
  • spinal tumor;
  • AVM;
  • trigeminal neuralgia and others.

Another novelty in the treatment of brain cancer is a system GliaSite, designed for internal radiation therapy, radiation providing on-site location of the tumor with minimal impact to surrounding tissue and structure.

Spine Treatment - Spinal Neurosurgery

In Israel, doctors work with an impeccable international reputation, trained in the field of neurosurgery, orthopedics, radiology, physiotherapy. They carry out the treatment of adults and children. These help treat patients with congenital defects and degenerative changes in the back, neck, obtained as a result of injury, disease, age-related changes. Spine Centers functioning in the largest clinics in the country, equipped with modern facilities.

The following surgical procedures are carried out in the hospital:

  • anterior cervical discectomy;
  • kyphoplasty (minimally invasive treatment of compression fractures);
  • posterior lumbar discectomy;
  • posterior lumbar decompressive laminectomy;
  • fusion (anterior and posterior);
  • reconstructive surgery;
  • injectable treatments for the joints and spine, nerve roots that control pain symptoms.

Consult your doctor neurosurgeons Israel, you will get a professional diagnosis, treatment plan correctly followed guidelines on rehabilitation. It does not recognize the protocol template, and make the scheme to suit the needs of the individual patient (mobility issues, nutrition, depression, and other factors).

The cost of neurosurgical procedures

Compared with Germany, Austria, Great Britain and other European countries to Israel, surgery is cheaper by 30-40%. The quality of procedures is not inferior and sometimes superior service in these countries. Mark the exact cost of treatment in Israel difficult, as for pricing requires careful assessment of the patient's health. Nevertheless, it is possible to identify some of the items.

Diagnostics in Neurosurgery Israel

Among diagnostic methods should be noted general procedures by which it becomes possible to estimate the exact condition of the patient and competent diagnosis. After the study the complete medical history, a physical examination is performed, patients are directed to diagnostic tests:

  1. Arteriogram (angiography) - examination of arteries and veins to detect blockages or narrowing of blood vessels.
  2. Cerebral angiography - after a patient is administered a contrast agent or dye, a doctor makes X-ray imaging for cerebral blood flow.
  3. Computed tomography (CT) - a combination of x-rays and computer technology makes it possible to obtain detailed images of any part of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat, organs, and structures.
  4. Electrodiagnostic tests - to help diagnose disorders of the muscles and neurons.
  5. Electromyography (EMG) - analysis of the electrical activity in the muscles.
  6. NCV (nerve conduction velocity) - via electrodes attached to the head is conducted continuous recording of electrical activity of the brain.
  7. capacity tests - procedures that use electrodes to measure and record electrical brain response to visual, auditory, sensory stimuli.
  8. Lumbar puncture (Spinal Tap) - a needle placed in the spinal canal and measures the brain and spinal cord pressure. The survey may be extracted a small amount of fluid to test for detecting infection or other problems.
  9. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - a procedure that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave radiation to create organs / structures within the body image.
  10. Myelogram - dye is injected into the spinal canal that allows its structure clearly visible during X-ray radiation.
  11. Positron emission tomography (PET) - radiotracer is injected into the blood, inhaled or swallowed to help assess the activity of the cells and determine how organs and tissues are functioning well.
  12. Ultrasound (US) - in neurosurgery Israeli high-frequency sound waves and computer software are used to create images of blood vessels, tissues and organs.

In each case, the patient's treatment in the clinic are subject to different diagnostic methods. But they are used be sure that the doctor can make an accurate diagnosis, disproving old or confirm it.

Robotic System da Vinci in neurosurgery Israel (spinal surgery)

neurosurgery IsraelThe new standard for minimally invasive surgery - the use of robotic equipment - surgical system Da Vinci. Robotic technology offers patients an alternative to both traditional open surgery and laparoscopy. The classic open surgery often require incisions in the body 6 to 12 inches (15 - 30cm). Laparoscopic surgery which uses smaller incisions, it is effective to standard procedures, but has limitations for more complex operations.

Robotic assistance allows surgeons to perform complicated procedures with a high degree of accuracy through tiny incisions 1-2 cm long, using the console, the high resolution monitor and four interactive robotic arms. Through the use of Da Vinci robot to the patient opens up new perspectives, which resulted in:

  • Reduces the period of his stay in the hospital.
  • Recovery is more rapid.
  • The patient experiences less pain.
  • There is less tissue scarring.
  • Reduced blood loss during the operation.
  • There are fewer complications in the postoperative period.

Israeli doctors specialize in the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques for a wide range of procedures. Robots are used in neurosurgery Israel, spinal surgery, gynecology, cardiology and other areas of medical practice. Their use eliminates prolonged hospitalization and long-term rehabilitation even after complicated surgical interventions. Innovative surgery techniques cause minimal trauma of the body and are significant benefits to patients.

planning for neurosurgery

neurosurgery in IsraelDoctors recommend surgery, depending on the health status of the received results of the study. Since all surgical procedures - stress for the patient, the experts in the framework of an individual approach service accompany each patient before and after surgery. Support includes receiving organization procedure for admission to the hospital, the hospital care organization, during rehabilitation. At the stage of the surgery planning is working with patients and their families. Thoroughly explains the following:

  1. What is the neurosurgery in Israel, that distinguishes the procedures to be patient.
  2. How to prepare for the operation.
  3. What do you expect to stay in hospital, what period of stay in the hospital is considered optimal.
  4. How to prepare to return home after the surgery.
  5. What are the follow-up physical therapy or rehabilitation.

Recovery after neurosurgical operations often requires the provision of specialized services to help patients and their family members to quickly return the patient to a normal rhythm of life. Bring it to a state of independence, the ability to self-service. If desired, the patient can organize the process of rehabilitation in Israel to completely recover under the supervision of a physician. To this end, developed an individual recovery plan, including the questions of care, medical procedures, provide transport, drug therapy, the patient's place of residence.
