Held back surgery in Israel after a thorough examination. The clinic Assuta patient himself can choose a doctor, first studying his experience, practice, patient testimonials. This prerogative is only available in a private hospital.
Once in a state institution, the patient falls under the jurisdiction of the physician, which he was given in accordance with the degree of congestion of a specialist. This can be a beginner spinal surgeon, and can be a doctor with experience. Clarity on this issue comes at a time when the patient lies on the examination and subsequent surgery.
Surgical treatment is carried out in the presence of degenerative changes of the spine, as well as in the case of congenital abnormalities.
The Assuta experts operate surgical industry, internationally recognized professionals. Using sparing recovery technology, the latest generation of artificial limbs, innovative equipment and consumables, they conduct surgery in the most comfortable for the patient mode, under the influence of anesthesia individually selected.
To hold back surgery in Israel price comparable with the prices of the leading elite Russian clinics, but lower than in the United States and other Western countries. The professionalism of the doctors of Israel, especially the development of infrastructure of hospitals, equipping hospitals is always on top. It contributes to the rapid recovery of patient care staff, relentless attention to emerging needs in the treatment process. Considerable importance is the mild climate of Israel, the proximity of the healing of the seas. Often, surviving spinal surgery, patients are sent to rehabilitation in a sanatorium on the shore of the Dead Sea, where the complete course of treatment abroad.

Spinal surgery - reviews, innovation
Reviews of Israeli medicine affect those aspects that they reflect. They often emphasize the innovative products of Israeli manufacturers in the field of surgery back. One of the most striking discovery was the NLT-spine technology, when in step spinal surgeon uses miniature implants, take the desired shape in the body of the patient. Small tools provide minimal tissue trauma, as for the implantation of the implant sufficiently cut a little more than 2 cm.
Of interest is the ultrasonic scalpel Bonescalpel - tool capable dissect bone matter without damaging the nerve fibers, vascular formation, muscle and tendon tissues. Thanks to him, you can cut the vertebrae without damaging the spinal cord. Demand among Russian-speaking population uses robotic system O-Arm, which gives a three-dimensional X-ray image of the operated area during surgery.
The cost of spinal surgery in Israel
On the question of how much back surgery in Israel, it is difficult to answer unequivocally. Every clinical case has its own characteristics. However, average prices are as follows:
- MRI - $ 1460
- Blood test - $ 290
- Advisory welcome neurosurgeon - $ 550
- Coagulation - $ 80
- The detailed formula is a blood test - $ 250

She was treated at Assuta hospital, where everything is done for the convenience of patients. I met here compatriots with maintaining relations to this day . everybody is happy with the result. Inga, 35 years old "
Spinal surgery for tumors in Israel
Neurology and neurosurgery Israel successfully carry out diagnostics, conservative and surgical treatment of diseases of the spine.
Among tumor formation, affecting the spine, isolated, primary and secondary, benign and malignant nature.
- Benign growths that develop from bone - osteoblastoma, osteoma. Of the cartilage occurs osteoblastoklastoma and osteoma. There are also vascular neoplasms - hemangioma. Of nerve cells occurs neurofibroma from connective tissue cells - chordoma of peripheral nerves - nevrilemmoma.
- Among the malignant tumors are most common osteoid osteoma, osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, malignant osteoblastoklastoma.
Secondary tumors - metastases is, more often than breast cancer, prostate, lung, ovarian, thyroid, kidney.
The neoplastic process involved vertebral body and appendages. With the defeat of several vertebrae occur pathological fractures.
Diagnosis spinal tumors
For diagnosis in the Assuta doctors refer to the following procedures:
- History and physical examination.
- medical imaging tests - MRI, CT, PET, PET-CT, chest X-ray.
- A biopsy of the tumor.
- Blood and urine tests.
Treatment programs in the clinic Assuta
treatment plan is developed after specifying the nature of the tumor, its location and size, patient related pathologies.
Assuta Hospital doctors use the most modern equipment, because the medical center has the opportunity to purchase the latest medical and diagnostic equipment. Surgeons are actively using minimally invasive and sparing approaches.
The operation on the spine will provide the opportunity to:
- Completely remove the tumor.
- Conduct its histological diagnosis.
- Tsitoredutsiruyuschuyu perform surgery for subsequent chemotherapy and radiation treatment in case of impossibility of complete removal of the tumor.
- To carry out a quick and adequate decompression of the spinal cord.
- Conduct stabilization of the spine.
This type of surgery can be divided into three groups:
- Minimally invasive surgery (vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty).
Their main goal - to remove the pain, arrest neurological symptoms, stabilize the spinal segment. Surgical intervention is palliative. It improves the quality of life of the patient and provides the opportunity for further treatment.
To stabilize the adjacent vertebrae fusion method is used - and implanting the artificial bone grafts to create immobility vertebral segment. Vertebra affected by tumor, replace the endoprosthesis.
It can be used:
- bone autograft extracted from the patient's iliac bone;
- allografts - transplanted bone fragments from another person;
- metal plates and / or dentures, made from stainless steel or a polymer plastic.
The operation to stabilize the spine (Spinal Fixation) is performed using endoscopic techniques using general anesthesia. During surgery, a special metal structure holds the damaged vertebrae. Vertebra and replace cartilage implants and grafts. Thus, stabilize the spine portion which loses mobility. Removing the fastening construction spine is performed.
Surgical decompression means removing structures that compress the spinal cord.
Minimally invasive spinal surgery
The benefits of such surgical procedures include:
- minimal trauma (for small incision surgery);
- lower risk of infection;
- small blood loss;
- the use of local anesthesia;
- less pain;
- possibility of movement within a few hours after surgery;
- the absence of large scars;
- the use of advanced laparoscopic and endoscopic equipment.
Among the most effective minimally invasive techniques vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty is isolated, which eliminates fractures decompression.
- Puncture percutaneous vertebroplasty fixes the vertebral body through a special bone cement (special plastics). It is recommended for pain syndrome, when there is a threat or a fracture of the vertebral body in relation to the type of osteolytic lesions. Vertebroplasty consolidates and stabilizes damaged vertebrae using bone cement, against a background of benign and malignant tumors, osteoporosis, trauma. The main result - improved quality of life and reduces the pain. The surgery is performed under X-ray or CT control. The patient lies on his stomach, and is under the influence of local anesthesia. On the skin of the pathologically changed vertebrae make a small incision. The needle is introduced into the vertebral body through which cement is injected into the fracture. When hemangiomas bone cement not only strengthens the vertebra, it has a cytotoxic effect on the tumor.
- Kyphoplasty is recommended for compression spine fractureswith chronic pain. The reason they can be: osteoporosis, benign (hemangiomas) or malignant neoplasms. Kyphoplasty reduces or eliminates pain in the back, prevents subsidence fractured vertebra, retains the normal posture. During operation in a vertebral body fractured administered tube-conductor, through which the fracture is located in a special balloon filled with pressurized fluid. As a result, the geometry of the broken vertebra is restored, the cavity is created inside the body. The balloon is then deflated and removed from the tube conductor. Bone cement, which hardens after a few minutes, fill the cavity. The average duration of the operation - 90 -120 minutes. Over 2-7 days after surgery the patient is in the hospital under medical supervision.
And laser technology (Nb-YAG-laser) is used for the removal of spinal tumors in Israel.
In addition, it is possible to carry out operations on the spine in the Assuta with a medical robot. Surgery may involve implantation of clamps, correction of scoliosis in children and adolescents, the removal of benign tumors.
