The Division of General Surgery at Shaare Zedek Medical Center is divided into several specialized units, including Bariatric Surgery, Hepato-Biliary Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Breast Surgery and Pediatric Surgery. Our physicians specialize in advanced laparoscopic procedures (minimally-invasive surgeries in the abdomen) to remove tumors from internal organs and to treat diseases of the digestive tract. The division is part of the Digestive Diseases Institute.
The division's staff is fully committed to providing the best treatment - professional, current and precise, with the utmost respect to the patient's rights and privacy. At the division, the patient (and their family) is at the center. Everything our physicians and nurses do is for the benefit of the patient's health and recovery process.
The nursing staff includes certified nurses, some with advanced training in intensive care, auxiliary workers, volunteers from Sherut Leumi and secretaries - all are highly qualified and experienced in all aspects of the treatments administered at the division.
