The Department of Neurosurgery at Rabin Medical Center was established in Petah Tikva in 1948.
The Beilinson Campus is a university hospital affiliated with the Tel Aviv University, that hosts academic and research activities.
Patients with problems in all areas of neuro surgery including:
mid-brain and hypophysis surgery, malignant and benign tumor surgery, central nervous system and spine surgery, intensive care and trauma unit, vascular surgery of the brain, including inuasive radiology and endovascular therapy are treated in the Neurosurjery Department. Over 1,000 surgical procedures in adults and about 400 pediatric patients are carried out each year.
The department's stuff includes 10 senior physicians who are the leading experts in their fields, 6 interns and a staff of 29 nurses.
The department is aided by a team of physiotherapy, healing and occupational specialists who accompany the patient throughout the entire hospitalization period.
The Department of Neurosurgery serves the entire population of Israel, at standards equal to some of the world's leading centers.
The academic activity in the department includes clinical research in all fields, cooperation with centers in Israel and abroad, using the most advanced equipment: awake surgeries, stereotactic biopsies, navigation by computer imaging, electro-physiological monitoring during surgery, 3-D computerized treatment angiography, advanced in-surgery surgical imaging, ultrasound, CT, MRI.
Minimally invasive endoscopic surgery using advanced endoscopic equipment, spine and brain is performed in the dipartment. In addition, the surgical neurophysiology service conducts advanced monitoring and mapping that assist in reducing the risks of neurological complications, and improves surgical outcomes.
The stuff of the department collaberates with the Neuro-oncology Department of the Davidoff Center in follow up treatment of tumors in the central nervous system (glioma, meningioma, schwannoma, metastases).
The department provides treatment in the fields of stereotactic radiosurgery for multiple indications including brain and spine, in adults and children.
A service for endoscopic surgery of the brain and spinal cord is available. The endoscopic approach extends the surgical indication to the analysis of cases that are not applicable to open approaches. The minimal approach enables the avoidance of the major surgery and scarring that often occur in standard approaches.
The department has 30 hospital beds, including a new 6-bed intensive care unit. The department's physicians teach at the Tel Aviv University School of Medicine, the NYU program, and the Nursing School, and are members of medical journal editorial boards and international associations.
