Heart surgery in Israel: teamplay with American opinion allies and angiography for $3,600
Israeli cardiac surgeons work hand-in-hand with their American colleagues through weekly hands-on trainings, live surgery, and telemedicine. Coronary artery bypass surgery and stenting is a routine procedure numbering a few dozens a day throughout the country.
Israel has also introduced a new technique of minimally-invasive cardiac operations. With least damage to your heart, small 3-4 cm cuts, and detailed after-surgery advice in your pocket, in a few days you will be able to take a stroll in downtown Tel Aviv.
Cost-effective heart care in Israel is obvious, especially if you come from the U.S. For instance, heart valve replacement including the valve costs around $36,000 while coronary artery bypass graft and angiography make $32,000 and $3,600 respectively. However, it is more expensive than oncology in Italy.
Today, most patients planning their trip to Israel inquire about heart surgery at Hadassah Medical Center (Jerusalem).
Adult and paediatric heart conditions treated at Israeli clinics and hospitals cover:
- heart attack
- coronary artery disease
- congenital heart defect
