  • Angiographic cardiac catheterization.

Our principal consultant, in the field of cardiology, is Professor Michael Shechter, a senior cardiologist at the Heart Institute, at Shiba Medical Center, and Associate Professor of Cardiology at the Sackler Faculty of Medicine, at Tel Aviv University.

Radiofrequency ablation is performed by Dr. David Lurie, Director of Atrial Fibrillation Service, Senior Cardiologist & Cardiac Arrhythmia specialist, at the Heart Institute, Sheba Medical Center.

Operations such as coronary artery bypass, heart valve replacement, etc. have become routine in Israeli surgical practice. These operations are conducted in a minimally invasive mode, i.e. in a least traumatic way for the patient. For example, penetration into the chest is made through a small side incision, rather than a large central incision. This procedure significantly shortens the recovery period and does not leave a visible scar. Whenever possible, cardiac surgeries are performed by endoscopic techniques.
