The D.R.A Vascular surgery department provides the most advanced care for patients with vascular diseases and disorders.
Because of their experience and expertise in minimally invasive procedures (Endovascular) for carotid occlusive disease, limb salvage and aneurismal diseases, our experts are highly-regarded leaders in the worldwide healthcare community.
Specializes in Angioplasty and Endovascular surgery
In recent years, the development of endovascular surgery and angioplasty has revolutionized vascular surgery. Traditional surgeries such as Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG), carotid endarterectomy and aneurysm clipping can now be performed by minimal invasive endovascular surgery. With this revolutionary treatment, patients can often recover from their illness in the next day rather than the weeks or months of a traditional surgery.
Treatment for Diabetic vascular disease
D.R.A specializes in treating Diabetic vascular disease (blockages in the arteries) and providing successful limb salvage. Through the use of highly accurate endovascular procedures, the vascular surgeon can reach even the smallest arteries in the limb in order to prevent amputation.
Directed by Prof. Ron Karmeli
The head of our vascular department, Prof. Ron Karmeli, pioneered endovascular stent graft procedures in Israel, is an influential member of many international healthcare organizations. Prof. Karmeli established the vascular department at Carmel Medical Center, mirroring the rigorous training and specialization of its US sister department at the Mayo Clinic. His department is the largest and most respectful in Israel, attracting doctors from all over the world for special training.
