The Division of Reconstructive and Esthetic Surgery (Plastic Surgery) provides top quality care for adults and children requiring reconstructive surgeries after injuries, accidents, surgical tumor removals, and corrective surgeries for congenital defects or abnormalities. The division specializes in treating medical conditions such as facial paralysis, ear, nose and throat pathology, skin tumors, etc.
Our plastic surgeons have additional expertise in postoperative restorative procedures (removal of postsurgical scars, etc.) and cosmetic surgeries (breast reconstruction, abdominoplasty, and many others).
The cutting-edge microsurgical technologies available at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center allow the tissue to be transferred from a distant donor site along with its feeding blood vessels. The transplanted blood vessels are connected under the microscope to other vessels in the recipient area. This enables to reconstruct large patches of skin.
The increased insight into the structure and functioning of the vascular system, along with the use of the latest technologies, has enabled successful transplantation of more complex tissues. Moreover, it has also helped to improve reconstructive outcomes and minimize damage to the donor site.
Microsurgical reconstruction can help restore the injured fingers, extremities, muscles, nerves, etc. It can also effectively restore the blood supply to the bones and soft tissues. The use of this method can help avoid amputations and even save people’s lives.
Mohs Micrographic Surgery
The Division of Reconstructive and Esthetic Surgery at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center specializes in treating skin tumors using Mohs technique, which is considered to be “the golden standard” in this filed, as it allows to achieve the best outcomes (both clinical and esthetic). As distinct from other methods, it enables to perform intraoperative microscopic examination of tissues and layer-by-layer tissue removal (including deep-seated tumors involving blood vessels, nerves, cartilage, etc.), while sparing healthy tissues.
Mohs technique is successfully used by our surgeons to remove cysts, moles, lipomas, scars, suspicious skin lesions, and malignant skin tumors (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma).
