Pediatric Treatment in Israel

Pediatric treatment in Israel includes a vast array of diagnostic, medical and rehabilitative procedures, aimed not only at restoring young patients’ health, but also at preventing complications that would affect them at a later stage of their lives. In order to maximize the efficacy of treatment, Israeli clinics employ the most innovative tools and treatment protocols, which help make children’s stay in the hospital as pleasant as possible under the circumstances.

Israeli pediatricians don’t only pay attention to their young patients’ physical state. They work tirelessly to make sure that any fears related to upcoming therapy or surgeries are alleviated in a timely manner. This is one of the reasons why in Israel one of the parents can stay with their child in the same hospital room.

The cutting-edge technologies used in Israeli clinics help physicians quickly establish a precise diagnosis while minimizing the number of invasive procedures required. They also allow for in vitro diagnostics and treatment.

What diseases are treated in Israel?

One of the most common reasons children from abroad come to Israel for treatment is cancer. Israeli clinics help thousands of foreign patients every year. It is important to note, that as a rule, when a disease is diagnosed at an early enough stage, Israeli experts manage to defeat it. That is true even for cancers that are considered hard to treat (for example, those that necessitate a bone marrow transplant).

Orthopedic treatments for conditions such as scoliosis, locomotor system disorders, birth injuries, and congenital abnormalities are another common reason why people travel to Israel. Local specialists strive to find the least invasive technique that will allow their young patients to lead a full life free of physical limitations.

But that’s not all. In fact, Israeli medical centers are well-equipped to treat virtually any disease from gastrointestinal to pulmonary conditions and from developmental disorders to allergies. Local clinics also excel at treating diabetes mellitus, kidney and liver diseases, musculoskeletal disorders and many other conditions. Thanks to advanced technologies, local specialists can now successfully treat diseases which were considered incurable as little as 10 or15 years ago, and many of which are still viewed as such outside Israel.

The Center’s Oncology department can quickly and efficiently diagnose all types of pediatric malignancies including soft tissue sarcomas, neuroblastomas and retinoblastomas. The highly-trained staff is especially proficient at treating lymphoma – the vast majority of patients make a complete recovery.

But Schneider is not only known for its expert physicians, who’ve trained at some of the best medical schools in the world. Perhaps even more importantly, it is also world-renowned for its compassionate approach both to its patients and their parents.

In line with the Israeli medical standards, whenever surgical intervention is required, the surgeons’ first choice will be a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure. Such operations significantly reduce post-operative symptoms and shorten the recovery period.
