We're promoting innovation to benefit our patients! We recently hosted a national conference on Repair of Hernias in the Abdominal Wall with dozens of senior physicians and department heads from hospitals throughout Israel in attendance as well as Dr. Tim Tollens from Belgium, one of the leaders in the field.
Dr. Eli Kakiashvili, Director of General Surgery Department A, organized the conference: "This is an important professional meeting which includes a lecture by Dr. Tollens on innovations in abdominal wall surgery and a demonstration of advanced surgical methods which enable the patient to recover faster following complex surgery through abdominal wall."
Since Dr. Kakiashvili joined Galilee Medical Center he has promoted the use of sub-invasive approaches in the treatment of lacrimal hernia repair. Annually approximately 100 people undergo a similar operation at our medical center so it is important to promote academic and research activities in the field. Additionally, two senior general surgery physicians Dr. Khatib Kamal and Dr. Grigori Bogouslavski, went to Rotterdam in the Netherlands for a course on innovative surgical methods to treat the abdominal cavity.
