Orthopedics in Israel is at the highest international standards. In orthopedic clinics of the state, all departments are equipped with a variety of modern medical and diagnostic devices. The medical staff is represented by world-class doctors. It is difficult to single out the main ones among modern orthopedic procedures, since each section of the musculoskeletal system uses its own approaches and methods.
All orthopedic procedures are performed using minimally invasive endoscopic techniques. Operational access is carried out through miniature holes in soft tissues. The advantages of modern orthopedic procedures are:

- Fast recovery and return to active life;
- No complications;
- Low trauma to healthy structures;
- Rapid intervention;
- Minimal blood loss;
- High quality and long lasting result.
Elbow arthroscopy is an elbow replacement surgery. The technique of performing the manipulation is advanced and low traumatic. During the operation, several holes are made in the elbow area, where new generation optical fibers are inserted. All structures of the joint, as well as the course of work, are displayed on the screen.
Arthroscopy of the elbow joint is performed under conduction anesthesia; after the operation, a plaster cast is applied for 2 days. The term of hospitalization is 4 days, and full rehabilitation is 3 months.
Ankle arthroplasty is performed when it is significantly damaged. During the operation, polymer-coated metal prostheses are implanted.
Endoprosthetics of the ankle joint in Israel is carried out using high-tech implants and modern technologies, thanks to which the patient does not feel any restrictions and returns to normal life.
Note that the rehabilitation period after surgery in Israel is relatively short (1.5-2 months).
Shoulder arthroplasty is performed under endotracheal anesthesia. The operation is indicated for persons with complete or partial destruction of the articular surfaces of the shoulder. To install the prosthesis, several cuts of the minimum size are made in the projection of the operated area. After excision of the damaged articular surfaces and preparation of the place for the implant, it is installed, and the skin and soft tissues are sutured.
Benefits of endoprosthetics in Israel
- Use of high-tech prostheses made of quality materials;
- Low invasiveness with a short hospitalization period;
- Preservation of intact joint structures;
- Restoration of the range of motion in all planes physiological to the implanted joint;
- Operations are carried out in modern operating rooms equipped with new and proven devices;
- High diagnostic ability of joint research methods.
Treatment of foot pathologies
Orthopedic pathologies of the foot are widespread and their quality treatment is very important. The most common diseases are the heel spur, hallux rigidus. In Israel, the treatment of these pathologies is carried out at a high level with full restoration of the natural shape of the foot.
Endoscopic heel spur treatment
For the operation, two incisions are made in the area of pathology, each 0.5 cm long. A surgical instrument is inserted into one hole for manipulation, and an endoscope is inserted into the other to visualize the structures of the operated area.
After endoscopic treatment of the heel spur, the patient’s symptoms disappear and the gait is normalized. With all this, miniature scars remain in the operated area, which are invisible to others.
Metatarsophalangeal arthrodesis is used to treat hallux rigidus. During the operation, the articular cartilage is excised using minimally invasive methods, and the metatarsal bone and phalanx of the joint are fixed with a bone plate. It should be noted that in order to reduce possible complications during the operation, an economical excision of the articular cartilage is carried out, so there is no risk of joint instability.
Spine treatment in Israel is one of the leading areas in the development of orthopedics. In this area, the most modern operations are carried out to return patients to a full life. The clinics conduct effective therapy aimed at combating osteochondrosis, radiculitis, intervertebral hernias and many other pathologies.
Due to the fact that the spine performs a supporting function and is responsible for movements throughout the body, all operations are performed by experienced and highly qualified surgeons using modern equipment.
