Professor Klausner is a winner of prestigious Israeli and international awards, author of over 250 scientific publications.
“I love operating. Mostly, I specialize in the treatment of advanced cancers of the digestive tract and endocrine system. I am entirely devoted to the principles of minimally invasive surgery.
We try to upgrade not only the process of surgery itself, but also the range of the provided medical services. We carry out a growing number of robotic procedures and regularly sophisticate robot-assisted surgery.
In the past, all of it seemed unattainable. Now, we operate even on those patients who would be denied surgery. Even if cancer is not cured in the end, the patient’s quality of life is increased significantly.
We do our utmost to carry out organ-preserving surgery. This also helps maintain the high quality of life for our patients.
Experts from the Ichilov Medical Center develop world-class therapeutic agents and surgical techniques. I take pride in being able to offer such high-level treatment to our patients.”
