Neurosurgery in Israel

Neurosurgical patients in Israel benefit from the expertise of highly-qualified specialists, as well as modern diagnostic techniques and innovative treatment protocols. Israeli is home to a number of world-renowned neurosurgeons; foreign neurosurgeons routinely travel to Israel to train at Ichilov and Sheba medical centers, where hundreds of operations are performed every year.

Foreign patients also have the opportunity to consult with top Israeli neurosurgeons prior to their arrival in Israel. Patients can also send their medical history, including MRI and/or CT scan images, so that the treating physician can draft an appropriate treatment plan in advance.

Once they’ve arrived in Israel, patients will undergo thorough diagnostics, which includes a cranial US scan, MRI and MRA of neck vessels and brain, and neuronavigation and stereotaxy.

The aforementioned diagnostic tools can also be used during an operation, for guidance and monitoring of the surgical procedure. All the diagnostic equipment used is renewed every two years.
