Pediatrics Wing B on Hadassah Hospital-Mount Scopus: State-of-the-Art Care in a Top-Notch Space

Since the opening of the renovated and expanded Pediatrics Wing B at Hadassah Hospital-Mount Scopus in February 2011, more than 3,000 children, mirroring the diversity of Israel's population, have been hospitalized in the new state-of-the-art space.

The new wing includes a four-bed Pediatric Surgery Unit, where children can rest comfortably and be monitored carefully as they recuperate from their operations. Hadassah's Pediatric Surgical Team, headed by Prof. Raphael Udassin, treats patients from birth through age 18, often performing corrective surgery for congenital anomalies or removing childhood tumors. In addition, full-time consultants provide comprehensive expert services in urological, vascular, and plastic surgery.

As early as 1991, Hadassah's Pediatrics Department entered the field of minimally invasive surgery. Performing a variety of laparoscopic surgeries, Hadassah also developed a leading training program in the field. Recently, Dr. Vadim Kapular performed an innovative minimally invasive appendectomy; instead of following the traditionall protocol of making three incisions, he performed the surgery with only one, entering through the child's umbilicus (navel).
