It constitutes a referral center for children suffering from complex orthopedic problems, arriving at the center from all over Israel as well as many countries worldwide.

A highly specialized team, engaged in research and international collaborations

The medical staff includes orthopedists and senior specialists, each of whom has a distinct field of expertise, in which they have many years of experience, such as correction of extremity distortions, spinal column surgery, sports medicine, and more.

The scope of specialties facilitates the provision of high-quality, highly-specialized professional solutions for a broad range of pediatric orthopedic problems and diseases.

The team specializes in treating the growing and developing child and is famous for its comprehensive approach that includes diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of children – all under one roof.

The department’s team is well known for its inclusive, empathetic regard for children and their families, with attention paid not only to the children’s orthopedic condition but to their family history and their general health and wellbeing.

The hospitalization ward has a devoted nursing staff, highly experienced in caring for children. They educate the child and the family about the anticipated operation and guide them through the entire process, prior to and post-surgery, as well as throughout the hospitalization period.

Research, ongoing education, and international collaborations

In addition to treating patients, the medical staff of the department is involved in various academic activities. These include basic and clinical research projects that are published in prestigious, international, scientific journals. They also attend professional international and Israeli conferences in their fields of expertise, and teach medical students and interns.

Colleagues from abroad and from other Israeli medical centers come to teach and/or to continue their professional studies in the department. All the senior physicians are active in professional Israeli and international medical associations, often manning various committees and positions. They are frequently invited to teach and lecture at international conferences and courses.

These collaborations lead to ongoing collegial dialogues with their counterparts throughout the world, which facilitates the adoption of the most up-to-date pediatric orthopedic methods of treatment, thus bringing maximum benefit to all the children under their care.
