Specialized in: pediatric surgery

The Department of Pediatric Surgery at Rambam Health Care Campus under the direction of Dr. Ran Steinberg performs a wide range of operations in children, including abdominal and chest operations for congenital anomalies, traumatic injuries and tumors, as well as hernias, undescended testicles and circumcisions. The Department is one of the national leaders in the surgical treatment of children with cancers, congenital malformations, Crohn’s and Hirschsprung's diseases. Special emphasis is also placed on correcting congenital deformities of the rectum resulting in incontinence or severe constipation. The operations for excessive sweating of the hands, gall bladder removal are performed using laparoscopy. There are also carried out conventional open operations.

The pediatric surgeons working in the Department are the only specialists in Israel, who perform minimally invasive robot-assisted surgery in children. In addition, there are special operations performed only at Rambam Health Care Campus. The physicians of the Department prefer a holistic approach in the treatment and do not underestimate child’s psychological state. The psychological preparation before surgery has been proved to be very beneficial for young patients. Therefore, all children receive this preparation. It involves professional pediatric psychologists, teachers and medical clowns.

The medical team, headed by Dr. Ran Steinberg, actively participates in research, such as examining the use of stem cells for regenerating destroyed liver cells in an attempt to develop an alternative to liver transplantation.
