Neurology in Israel

The Head of the Neurology Department at Rabin Medical Center is Professor Israel Steiner (Prof. Israel Steiner), one of the best neurologists in Israel. The Department is perfectly equipped technically and uses all modern treatment techniques. The personnel of the Department consist of highly qualified specialists.

There is great variety of nervous system diseases. Sometimes, it is rather difficult to distinguish between trivial complaints for headache, dizziness, backache, insomnia, rapid fatigability and many others and symptoms of serious neurological diseases. In neurology, the same as in other branches of medicine, adequate treatment of patients depends to a large extent on carefully performed diagnostics and timely onset of treatment.

Using modern methods of diagnostics and treatment, doctors at the Neurology Department at Rabin Medical Center sometimes do truly improbable things in the area of treatment of neurological diseases.

Diagnostic methods in neurology:
  • Lumbar puncture is necessary for the determination of intracranial pressure and used as a site for the introduction of contrast agents for other studies. 
  • Computed tomography (CT) provides for detection of many types of involvements: hydrocephaly, cortical atrophy, displacement of brain structures caused by tumors and other expansive processes. 
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows for obtaining images of nervous structures in extremely high resolution without any known risks of complications for patients Diagnostic value of the procedure is increased when using contrast agents.
  • Echoencephalography is a graphic representation of ultrasonic waves reflected from areas of brain under examination. The method may be used directly at patient’s bed for diagnostics of hemorrhages and hydrocephaly in children aged under 2 years. 
  • Electroencephalography consists in recording electrical activity of the brain. Provides for detection of changes in this activity in cases of epilepsy, sleep disturbances and various encephalopathies. 
  • Positron emission tomography (PET-CT) is used to obtain information important for the treatment of brain tumors, strokes and epilepsy.
  • Cerebral angiography is a roentgenologic technique using contrast agents in order to obtain images of arterial and venous vessels of the brain. 
  • Ultrasound Doppler scanning is used to diagnose carotid artery dissection, stenosis or occlusion. 
  • Myelography is a roentgen examination of spinal medulla with contrast used to diagnose diskal hernias, neurocanal tumors, etc. 
At the Department, special attention is paid to problems of treatment of “headache.” The Head of this Division is Dr. Koritsky, a specialist of global renown in this field of medicine.
