Choose Your Impact: 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 Center in the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower comprises the most well-equipped and innovative operating theaters in the region. One operating room is reserved strictly for trauma; the others are used, as needed, 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 HMO'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 an HMO first and led to the convening of an intensive two-day seminar for gastroenterology and liver experts from throughout Israel.
