Neurosurgery Instruments

80% of victims of terror in Jerusalem are brought to Shaare Zedek’s emergency department for urgent lifesaving treatment. Many of these, particularly those resulting from terror or vehicular accidents have serious head and spinal injuries.

These trauma patients often require extensive neuro-radiological and neurosurgical intervention and in many instances urgent and complex surgery.

Shaare Zedek’s first priority now is to expand our services to enable us to care for patients in our Neurosurgery Institute


Buy a Wheelchair for $US500

Shaare Zedek Medical Center’s Wilf Children’s Hospital always needs wheelchairs for our youngest patients.

With every $US500 that is raised, you will purchase a wheelchair for children at Shaare Zedek.

A plaque will be placed on Shaare Zedek Medical Center’s wheelchair donor wall in your honour. Please consider commemorating a significant occasion in your life with a wheelchair for Shaare Zedek’s children.
