The Most Advanced Congenital Heart Center
in the World
At the Chaim Sheba Medical Center
The largest in Israel and a global leader
The Edmond J. Safra International Congenital Heart Center (EJS-ICHC) at the Sheba Medical Center is among the most advanced worldwide. Tens of millions of dollars have been recently invested in order to provide patients with the best possible treatment in respect to both the quality of surgery and the range of surgical options, some of which are available only at Sheba.
The Edmond J. Safra International Congenital Heart Center (EJS-ICHC), first established in 1952, is now headed by Senior Surgeons who have the most vast clinical experience in Israel. The Director of the Edmond J. Safra International Congenital Heart Center (EJS-ICHC) is Dr. David Mishaly.
Prof. Alain Serraf, one of the leading pediatric cardiac surgeons in the world, joins Dr. Mishaly frequently, and operates in the Edmond J. Safra International Congenital Heart Center (EJS-ICHC) on a regular basis
The Edmond J. Safra International Congenital Heart Center (EJS-ICHC) is unique in its ability to conduct complex procedures on premature babies, children who are underweight and children with various types of congenital deformities that are difficult to operate on. In recent years, a new method developed for surgical heart procedures in children enables surgery to be performed via a small, aesthetic incision, which results in a higher success rate.
Correcting congenital heart deformities in babies and children mandates multidisciplinary teamwork with other hospital departments. Herein lies the crucial advantage of being the largest medical center in Israel. We work closely with all of the relevant departments and have all the necessary resources on site and at our disposal.
Our caring professional staff continually undergo courses and advanced training to stay abreast of the latest developments to integrate the most modern scientific achievements in heart surgery; keeping us in the forefront of pediatric heart surgery and the correction of congenital heart deformities.
The life of a one week old baby with a hypoplastic left heart syndrome (SGLS) was saved at the Edmond J. Safra International Congenital Heart Center (EJS-ICHC) thanks to the know-how and dedication of our staff who had the ability to perform this unusual procedure. Conducted in very few nations, the procedure is quite unique in that it uses hybrid technology and two methods for correcting the deformity. The procedure has two significant benefits; there is less pain post-operatively for the little patient, and the recovery time is considerably less.
A fully staffed team work with the family and child to ensure the highest level of professional care, starting with preoperative to post-operative rehabilitation.
