“What I like the most about my job is the possibility to explain the disease and the treatment methods to the patient.

I help people make informed decisions and recommend to obtain as much information as possible, be it from articles on the Internet or from the stories of friends and colleagues with similar diagnoses.

A patient can contact various specialists and even consult a second or third urologist. I always support this initiative because the patient should know as much as possible about their disease. Only in this case, they will be able to make an informed decision concerning treatment.

The Department of Urology at the Ichilov Medical Center admits patients with various diseases and complicated conditions. We often have to perform complex, unique surgical procedures. We frequently deal with patients who were denied surgery in other countries. We offer effective and safe surgical treatment – and provide our patients with consistent support before, during and after surgery.”

Was included by the Forbes Israel magazine into the best physician rating spanning 37 medical specialties in 2021
