About clinic

Sheba Medical Center is the largest medical facility in the Middle East. Sheba Medical Center is known far beyond the borders of Israel. It is in this state multidisciplinary clinic that politicians and VIPs from different countries prefer to be treated. Sheba is the first Israeli hospital to be internationally accredited by JCI. Patients with the most difficult cases from all over the world are treated here. Among the 159 specialized clinics, centers and departments of Sheba, foreign patients are most in demand for treatment in the following profiles:

  • oncology;
  • oncohematology, bone marrow transplantation, CAR-T-cell therapy;
  • pediatrics;
  • cardiology and cardiac surgery.

Due to the fact that scientific research of the international level is conducted in Sheba University Center, the most advanced and innovative methods of diagnosis and treatment are used in all areas of medicine.

Cancer Treatment at Sheba Cancer Center

An interdisciplinary team of oncologists performs diagnostics and treatment of all types of malignant tumors and blood cancer at the level of the best world standards. The cooperation of Sheba Medical Center with the American Anderson Cancer Center and the presence of a large specialized research center make it possible to treat cancer at a new level, inaccessible in many other clinics.

High-tech laboratories use innovative techniques to determine the exact biology and genetics of each tumor. This allows physicians to develop an effective personalized treatment protocol. Specialists select drugs in accordance with the molecular genetic characteristics of the tumor.

Cancer surgery is organ-preserving in the initial stages. Most surgeries are minimally invasive and endoscopic. For some types of cancer, robotic surgeries are used. Surgeons also remove tumors by microwave, radiofrequency, or ultrasound ablation. In the case of breast, head and neck cancer, methods of reconstructive and plastic surgery are used to ensure an aesthetic result and complete rehabilitation of patients.

Chemotherapy complies with the latest international protocols, many of which have been developed in Israel and at Sheba Clinic. In targeted therapy and immunotherapy, drugs of the latest generation are used. In complex cases and recurrences of cancer, patients have access to the latest drugs that are undergoing clinical trials.

Radiotherapists use advanced radiation technologies, including brachytherapy, radiosurgery, intraoperative radiotherapy, and radionuclide therapy.

Diagnosis: Hip replacement

I underwent surgery to replace the hip joint. I was in the orthopedics department on the third floor, wing B.
The next day I got up and walked down the hall with a walker. By the evening I was already taking the first steps up the stairs holding on to the railing. On the third day I was discharged from the hospital and myself. I got home by taxi .. I climbed the stairs, too, without third-party objects. My result is a super-professional doctor. Special thanks to the surgeon Eran Avivi, a specialist and a professional in his field, as for me he is generally a magician in a surgeon’s dressing gown. Low bow to all the doctors of the orthopedics department of the hospital. Shiba ….. recommend !

Diagnosis: Burkitt's lymphoma

The medical staff is very polite, always with a smile. The professional qualities of everyone with whom we had to cross at a very high level. About each of their actions in relation to the child, they explain what they do and why. The main rule when referring to a child is to do everything so that the child does not get hurt and does not cause mental trauma. It is not for nothing that Sheba Medical Center ranks among the top ten in the world.

Diagnosis: Lung cancer

When lung cancer was detected, we were advised to go to Israel, namely to the Sheba clinic, since our friends had already been treated there.
We contacted the clinic via the Internet and, having sent all the necessary test results, they promptly sent us an invitation for treatment.
Arriving in Israel, we were pleasantly surprised by the attitude of the medical staff towards all patients.
After conducting the necessary examinations, the doctors of the thoracic department decided to perform the operation with punctures, using temperature equipment (a man-made source of radiation used in treatment), and not cavity as they were going to do in Russia. The entire medical staff of the department was very attentive and caring, for which special thanks to them.
On the 7th day after the operation, my mother was discharged, and after another 10 days we were at home, in Voronezh (before the doctors did not recommend a flight.)
Summing up my words, I would like to sincerely and wholeheartedly say thank you to the doctors at Sheba Clinic, who saved my mother, because MOM is the most dear person in life.

Diagnosis: Breast cancer

I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer in Moscow 5 years ago. At first, I wanted to be treated at home, but the doctor advised a clinic in Israel. We read about the Sheba clinic, turned to the international department. The next day, I received an invitation and went with my daughter to the clinic. We were met, escorted to the clinic, and shown to the doctors. A few days later, Dr Moishe Papa made an operation. Thanks God, I’m doing well, I managed to save my breasts, which was not promised in Moscow. Every six months I go for an examination. Yes, it’s not cheap, but life is worth it.

All conditions for successful diagnosis and treatment of all types of oncological pathologies are created here.

The department is equipped with the latest devices, including:

  • linear accelerators IMRT;
  • stereotaxic devices SRS;
  • cone-beam CT and others.

Doctors of the department have high rates of successful treatment due to following the basic rules:

  1. Comprehensive treatment. To increase the effectiveness of treatment, the specialists of the department combine several methods of therapy. Doctors use:
  • minimally invasive surgery;
  • radiotherapy, including brachytherapy;
  • chemotherapy;
  • targeted therapy.
  1. Personalized treatment. For each patient, an individual plan is drawn up, taking into account age, general condition, type and location of the tumor, and stage of the disease.
  2. Caring for the emotional state of the patient.

Sheba Medical Center doctors use high-quality medicines with a minimum of side effects. In Sheba Clinic, the complete cure for cancer when detected in the early stages is 95%. Five-year survival rates for late-stage detection are among the best in the world.

Many healthy people prefer to undergo a cancer check-up at the clinic, which allows detecting 11 types of cancer in the early stages. This procedure is in demand among foreign patients.

Sheba Clinic features a Cancer Research Center where doctors test new treatment protocols and conduct cancer vaccine trials. In the laboratories of the center, genetic tests for the presence of mutations are available, which can reveal a predisposition to breast and prostate cancer.


What are the advanced methods used at Sheba Clinic for the treatment of blood cancer?

Sheba Clinic: blood cancer treatmentOncohematology in Israel is one of the leading branches of medicine. Sheba Clinic performs 250 successful bone marrow transplantations annually, which has allowed it to become a leader in the number of patients cured of leukemia.

The high result is a consequence of the use of innovative technologies, a powerful medical and diagnostic base, and the professionalism of the medical staff.

The Institute of Oncohematology at Sheba Clinic is the largest in the country.

The leading method of treatment is well-chosen chemotherapy.

The sparing chemotherapy developed by oncologists at the University of Tel Aviv are used in the oncology center. With the help of modern technologies, a substance that causes cell death is enclosed in microcapsules, which are covered on top with specific particles that are found only in malignant cells. After entering the blood, the microcapsules are connected to the receptors of tumor cells. Then the cytostatic comes out of the capsular membrane and damages the malignant cell, causing its destruction. At the same time, healthy cells remain intact.

Bone marrow transplantation is performed only if chemotherapy is ineffective. Its goal is to restore the normal process of hematopoiesis.

Also, the following methods help to achieve high results in treatment:

  • chemofiltration: improves the patient’s condition by removing toxic substances from the blood;
  • chemoembolization: to block the artery that feeds the tumor, a special drug is injected into the blood vessel (effective for lymphomas);
  • immune biological therapy: the introduction of immune cells into the body that can recognize and destroy malignant cells;
  • Port system: a special installation for the introduction of drugs into a vein, that reduces the load on the veins, and prevents the occurrence of phlebitis.

The department of oncohematology offers the most advanced treatment methods to date. Sheba’s team of oncohematologists are also leaders in the number of successful bone marrow transplantations. The Medical Center cooperates with the International BMT Registry and the European Group for BMT and Blood Transfusion.


Why do patients prefer the cardiology department of Sheba Hospital?

Sheba Hospital CardiologyPathologies of the cardiovascular system are treated at the Heart Center, which includes 13 departments. More than 35,000 people are treated here every year. High-tech diagnostics allow cardiologists to accurately assess the state of the heart and blood vessels, as well as control the treatment process.

The treatment regimen is compiled by an interdisciplinary commission, which includes cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, vascular surgeons, electrophysiologists, and rehabilitation specialists.

The technical capabilities of the operating units of the center make it possible to perform hybrid operations. For example, they combine open-heart surgery with minimally invasive and endovascular procedures of any complexity.

Many heart valve surgeries are performed using the minimally invasive Port Access method. The procedure does not involve opening the chest. The surgeon makes a small incision between the ribs under the breast, through which the endoscope and microinstruments are inserted. Coronary artery bypass grafting is performed mainly by this method.

Innovative techniques are also used in intensive care. To protect the brain of critically ill patients, therapeutic hypothermia is performed, that is an artificial decrease in body temperature. This procedure is available in only a few cardiac centers in the world.

For patients who have undergone major interventions, cardiorehabilitation is available, which is also carried out according to schemes individually drawn up for each patient. In the rehabilitation department, everyone can undergo heart diagnostics and testing. For example, testing with increasing load, observation, and monitoring of the work of the heart during the day using a special Holter system, and others.

Sheba Hospital features the International Center for the Treatment of Congenital Heart Diseases. Cardiac surgeons of the center perform minimally invasive operations to eliminate defects of the interventricular, interatrial septal, and other complex procedures.

What orthopedic procedures are best done at Sheba Clinic?

Sheba Clinic: treatment of orthopedic diseasesOrthopedists of the medical center specialize in the following procedures:

  • treatment of arthritis, arthrosis, osteomyelitis;
  • surgery of the hand, shoulder, hip, knee joints, intervertebral discs;
  • replacement and reconstruction of joints;
  • recovery operations after injuries.
