Ziv Opens New Pediatric Surgical Unit

1/5/2013

The Ziv Medical Center has launched a new Pediatric Surgery Unit. The new Unit will be run by Dr. Lili Lunsky-Hayari, previously Deputy Head of Rambam Hospital's Pediatric Surgery Department.

Dr. Lunsky-Hayari is a graduate of the Technion Medical School and has been practicing medicine for the past 30 years, with over 20 years of experience in pediatric surgery. Dr. Lunsky-Hayari specialized in general and pediatric surgery at the Rambam Hospital in Haifa, enhanced by participation in various programs in medical centers abroad. She is a lecturer at the Technion Medical School and will join the teaching staff of the Bar-Ilan University Faculty of Medicine in Zefat. 

The new Pediatric Surgical Unit will serve the residents of the Upper and Lower Galilee and the Golan Heights, who, to date, have had to travel to Haifa to receive this service. The Unit will provide a wide range of surgical services to newborns and children under the age of 18, including Gastro-Intestinal diseases and chest operations, surgery relating to congenital defects, hernias and undescended testis, trauma, pediatric oncology surgery, and minor-invasive operations (laparoscopy).

In addition, the new Unit will include a clinic which will provide consultations and diagnosis in complex cases, pre-operative preparation and follow-up.

Congratulating Dr. Lunsky-Hayari on her appointment, Dr. Oscar Embon, Director of the Ziv Medical Center stated that recruitment of specialists is part of the hospital's endeavor to provide the most advanced services and treatment to the residents of the Galilee." At the same time as progress is being made in the construction of Ziv's new Pediatric Center, we are also recruiting experts who will provide services which do not currently exist in the hospital. Dr. Lunsky-Hayari will be a great asset to our medical team, enabling us to provide high quality professional treatment and operations to our population. I wish her best of success in her new position".

Clinic hours will be 11:00 - 14:00 on Sundays in the out-patient clinic area. For appointments please call 04-6828768
