Hadassah High-Risk Pregnancy Expert Helps Ensure Successful Birth of Twins
Prof. Drorith Hochner-Celnikier
Yael, a speech therapist whose previous three children were born very small, was able to add healthy twins to her family, thanks in part to the intervention of Prof. Drorith Hochner-Celnikier, high-risk pregnancy expert and Director of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Hadassah Hospital-Mount Scopus.
There were emergencies and hospitalizations along the way and Yael had to give herself daily shots. But in her 36th week of pregnancy, Yael became the happy mother (via caesarian section) of two healthy baby girls, weighing 2 kilos and 2.3 kilos, respectively.
"How unthinkable life would be without Hadassah," notes Barbara Sofer, grandmother to the twins--and Hadassah's Director of Public Relations in Israel.
Hadasit, Hadassah’s Technology Transfer Arm, Reviews
When the Hadassah University Medical Center’s physicians suggest a
solution to a medical problem which can lead to the development of a new
medicine or product, Hadasit, Hadassah’s technology transfer arm, explores its
feasibility and supports the promotion of those viable ideas with innovation
potential. Although 2012 has been “a year full of challenges for the life
science industry,” says Einat Zisman, Hadasit’s Chief Executive Officer,
Hadasit still signed 125 agreements for clinical trials, all to be done at
Hadassah. In addition, Hadasit signed 15 agreements for cooperation and
commercialization of technologies that were developed at Hadassah. Click here
