“In neurosurgery, I specialize in the treatment of brain tumors.
Besides, I am in charge of the Department of Neurosurgery in one of Israel’s largest medical centers. We help our patients cope with these serious conditions. We strive not only to help our patients, but also to preserve normal quality of life and, if possible, to prevent brain function deterioration.
Neurosurgery Has Been Constantly Developing
We can offer our patients quality treatment. In my opinion, patients feel much more comfortable in a welcoming environment. We also do everything we can to expand the bounds of modern surgery and achieve excellent results. Thanks to our efforts, patients with the terrifying diagnosis “glioblastoma” live longer. Within the last 5 years, I have been seeing these patients not only live longer, but also report rather high quality of life.
I Prefer to Dedicate a Lot of Time to the Patient
During my residency, I learned one important lesson: you have to know not only the disease, but also the patient. We treat people, not MRI scans.
The Patient Should Feel Comfortable
Communication with any of the clinic specialists should be easy. I think that providing comfort for the patient is one of my responsibilities as a neurosurgeon. A person should feel that the doctor will truly offer them the most effective treatment.”
