The new Interventional Radiology Center, equipped with the latest technologies, is expected to enhance oncologic treatment at Sheba and offer advanced minimally invasive therapeutic options
Sheba’s Radiology Unit, which currently performs between 5,000 to 6,000 minimally invasive procedures each year to treat vascular occlusion, internal bleeding, brain catheterizations, and other ailments, has now completed its transformation into a new Center of Excellence.
As a result of this transformation, the facility was fitted with cutting-edge equipment, as well as specialized recovery and treatment rooms. “The new equipment allows us to perform incredibly complex procedures, and with the addition of the new state-of-the-art recovery and treatment rooms, we can now offer unparalleled care to our patients,” said Dr. Boris Khaitovitch, a senior Diagnostic Imaging Department physician.
According to Prof. Yitshak Kreiss, Director General of Sheba Medical Center: “The Imaging Department, and especially its Interventional Radiology Unit, have long moved from a diagnostic role into an essential component of the therapeutic continuum. The new center will become an international lodestone by combining innovation, clinical excellence, and a multidisciplinary approach.”
