Reviewed dozens of options, chose Israel. 3 months after the operation my baby walks by yourself, perform simple actions. No permanent exhausting crying because of the unbearable pain. My husband and I are glad that everything went as well as possible. Grateful to the doctors and coordinators, immediately offered an operation in Assuta.
