Heart Treatment in Israel

Israeli medical centers have an excellent track record of treating cardiac conditions such as arrhythmia, thoracic aortic aneurysms, large-artery atherosclerosis, valve disorders, cardiomyopathy, congenital heart defects, and more in both children and adults.

Israeli experts use advanced medical techniques and state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment such as:

  • Electrophysiological studies
  • Thallium SPECT (single-photon positron emission computed tomography)
  • Diagnostic Echocardiogram (rest/stress)
  • CTA (CT coronary angiogram)
  • Coronary angiogram (cardiac catheterization)

Available Treatments

Some of the most common treatments in Israel are:

  • Heart valve replacement surgery
  • CABG (coronary artery bypass grafting)
  • Coronary catheterization
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Installation of pacemakers
  • Endoscopic treatment of cardiac aneurysms and tumors of the heart
  • Heart transplants
  • Radiofrequency ablation

Operations such as coronary artery bypass, heart valve replacement, etc. have become routine in Israeli surgical practice. Whenever possible, they are conducted in a minimally invasive mode and by endoscopic techniques. This significantly shortens the recovery period and does not leave a visible scar.

Pediatric Cardiology

  • Diagnosis of congenital heart defects
  • Pre-operative preparation
  • Endoscopic catheterization of the heart and blood vessels
  • Diagnosis and treatment of heart disease, chest pain and arrhythmias
