About the department

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Orthopedics, Orthopedic Surgery at the Assuta Hospital Tel Aviv offers the full range of diagnostics and treatment of the diseases of musculoskeletal system, including sports injuries. One of the most important focuses of the department is joint replacement surgery. Thanks to the state-of-the-art medical equipment and competence of doctors, the department has gained an excellent reputation not only in Israel, but throughout the world.

The department is headed by the world-famous doctor Ilya Pekarsky. He is the Leading Spinal Surgeon and Orthopedic Surgeon in Israel, one of the most sought-after spinal surgeons in the world. Every year, he performs about 500 operations, thereby saving many human lives.

The department has successfully applied an innovative tendon fusion technique, which was developed in the USA. Such an procedure has several advantages over the traditional treatment method: it is less traumatic, the recovery period is shorter, and the cost of treatment is lower. In addition, thanks to the introduction of the Hydrocision technology, the department can offer spinal disc minimally invasive mechanical aspiration, which helps avoid damage to the surrounding tissues.

Special attention should be given to the treatment success of sports injuries. For example, the orthopedic surgeons of the department are world-famous for their success in the field of ligament rehabilitation surgeries. Depending on the indications, such operations are open or minimally invasive. Only two small incisions are made during the intervention, which contributes to the most rapid recovery of the patient.

  • Diagnostics and treatment of spinal diseases
