Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center is known for its holistic multidisciplinary approach, allowing for the most efficient interprofessional teamwork.

Although the ultimate goal is to cure each and every one of our patients, our specialists also go to great lengths to preserve a severed limb. In order to achieve this goal, we use the most innovative and comprehensive treatment protocols including surgical removal of tumors, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The use of cutting-edge treatments enables us to avoid limb amputation (and disability) and prevent any functional limitations in 90%-95% of the cases involving musculoskeletal and soft tissue tumors. This enables our patients to get back to their normal daily activities without experiencing any discomfort. In order to facilitate full functional restoration of the soft tissues, micro-neurosurgeries and microvascular surgeries are performed, along with rehabilitation procedures.In cases where bone resection is necessary, every effort is made to achieve restoration and augmentation of the bone using innovative high-tech prosthetic joint implants, adjustable chips, modular implants, etc. To facilitate future bone growth in children, we use specialized expandable implants (prostheses), remotely adjustable to accommodate the growing child.
