Orthopedics Department at Ichilov Hospital

The department specializes in a wide range of procedures, including:
- Complex reconstructive surgeries for treatment of traumatic injuries.

- Joint replacements.
- Hand surgery – treatment of degenerative diseases and traumatic injuries (including tendon correction).
- Diagnostics and treatment of intra-articular wrist disorders, including radial bone fractures.
- Treatment of foot and ankle disorders, including diabetic foot conditions.
- Arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder joint.
- Knee arthroscopy.
The Orthopedics Department at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center also specializes in sport medicine. This unique service is designed to care for competitive athletes. Our specialists develop a treatment plan tailored to each patient in order to speed up the recovery process and achieve the highest level of functionality.
Our medical professionals make extensive use of cutting edge technologies such as minimally invasive arthroscopic surgeries for treatment of joint diseases. The use of micro incisions facilitates the process of postoperative rehabilitation and increases the chances of success. Moreover, surgery scars after arthroscopy are much less visible.
Serious knee and hip injuries which cannot be cured by non-invasive methods, often require endoprosthetic surgeries. Customizing the treatment for each patient also means that when our specialists choose endoprosthetic implants, they always take into account individual patient characteristics (weight, age, physiological makeup, degree of physical activity, etc.). Since we are a leading hospital, we only use endoprosthetic implants produced by world leading manufacturers.
Rehabilitation in Orthopedic Departments
Here, at the Department of Orthopedics, we pay special attention to the process of rehabilitation. Most patients are able to begin placing loads on the joint on the second day after the surgery, under the careful guidance of our qualified rehabilitation specialists and physiotherapists. Our main goal is to help our patients get back on track as soon as possible!
Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons
Our medical team also includes pediatric orthopedic surgeons, specializing in the treatment of compound spinal and joint injuries, congenital skeletal abnormalities, correction of hand and feet deformities, etc. Along with qualified treatment and professional care, our young patients always receive the most dedicated attention from our medical staff. Non-surgical therapies, including special rehab exercises, massage, and specialty equipment for the functional improvement of the musculoskeletal system, are also extensively used.
Our medical center also features a Center for the Study of Movement, which helps adults and children with walking problems and abnormalities, and with neuromuscular disorders.
