Alevtina was diagnosed with a tumor in the reproductive system back in Russia. It was removed by the head of the Hadassah Gynecology Department, Dr. Avi Ben-Shushan. The examination and preparation for the surgery took only 4 days. If Alevtina had chosen treatment not in Israel, but in Germany, as planned at the beginning, the process would have taken much more time, effort and money. A week after the surgery, Alevtina felt great and warmly recalled the doctors treating her and everyone who helped her overcome insecurity and fear.

Due to the high rates of successful treatment, the Hadassah MC has been one of the best Israeli clinics in the field of gynecology for many years. The percentage of complete recovery and preservation of all the basic functions of the female body in case of cancer detected at an early stage in the Jerusalem hospital is one of the highest in the country.

The department performs the most modern types of surgery:

  • using the Da Vinci robot, doctors treat complex cases of pelvic organs prolapse, remove uterine fibroids and the uterus itself
  • with the help of a laser, the treatment of endometriosis and precancerous condition is carried out
  • doctors uselaparoscopic surgery to remove the uterus and cysts.

The doctors of the department have at their disposal the most advanced equipment: the unique ultra-precise PET-CT device that allows to accurately track the spread of a malignant process, the innovative Novalis TrueBeam Stx 2016 radiotherapy system, much more accurate and safe than similar systems in other Israeli clinics, as well as other devices of the latest generation.

Hadassah gynecologists preserve the female body: the latest methods

The high efficiency of the treatment of gynecological diseases in Israel is due to the use of the latest technology, including a robotic surgeon, and advanced methods of therapy, many of which were developed and implemented in Hadassah. Every year hundreds of tumor surgeries are performed in the clinic. In each case, gynecologic oncologists try to preserve the integrity of the body and its functions.

In advanced cases, when it is impossible to remove only the neoplasm and the removal of the uterus is required, the decision is made by a doctors` conference. This happens with large, fast-growing types of cancer (fibroma, myoma) complicated by bleeding. If the preservation of the genital organ is a threat to health, will lead to irreparable consequences, a hysterectomy is performed. The most gentle, low-traumatic method is chosen (usually laparoscopy) in order to shorten the rehabilitation period.

Da Vinci Surgical System

The latest generation of semi-automatic robotic surgeons have been treating Hadassah patients since 2009. It is difficult to operate in the pelvic space: the limited access, the proximity of the urinary organs and the digestive system do not leave the surgeon a sufficient field for work. In addition, difficult situations require complex actions, and a human surgeon has only two hands. Therefore, some types of surgery, for example, removal of the uterus, are performed using the Da Vinci surgical system, equipped with four manipulators with microsurgical instruments and clamps fixed in them. The innovative imaging system enlarges the image and provides a 360 ° view, which reduces tissue trauma, prevents vast blood loss, and minimizes the likelihood of error. The Da Vinci robot is used only in difficult cases; the decision on the use of the system is made by a doctors` conference headed by a leading gynecological surgeon.


Gentle diagnostic and therapeutic technique. Its advantages over open access are obvious: minimal trauma, no visible scars, easy rehabilitation. Open surgeries in gynecology, even with oncopathology, are carried out in Israel only if laparoscopic intervention is impossible. Doctors remove tumors mainly in a minimally invasive way. After surgery, radiotherapy and low-dose chemotherapy are given to prevent recurrence.

HIPEC chemotherapy: better effect, more safety

Intraperitoneal chemotherapy is used for cancer of the abdominal cavity, including in the treatment of malignant processes in the female reproductive system. After removing the tumor, the surgeon using a special device injects the heated chemotherapeutic agent directly into the surgery area. As a result, the effect of chemistry is enhanced, and side effects are practically not manifested, since the substance bypasses the bloodstream.


Novalis Turebeam STx 2016 (Radiotherapy system)

Since 2016, the state-of-the-art Novalis Turebeam STx 2016 radiotherapy system has been operating in Hadassah.

Since healthy tissues do not receive radiation at all, the dose is increased several times, which means that the number of sessions and the duration of each session are reduced, making the therapy faster and more comfortable. The device reacts to the slightest movement, even breathing, and corrects the direction of the beams.


With endometriosis, after a thorough examination, a course of modern hormonotherapy is prescribed, the purpose of which is to prevent further growth and spread of endometrioid foci. The surgery is performed in case of the absence of a response to medications.

Ovarian cysts are also the result of hormonal disorders. Cysts are dangerous, as they cause an inflammatory reaction, and when they rupture, the contents enter the abdominal cavity, leading to the formation of an infiltrate, the development of peritonitis or adhesions. Hormonotherapy is often used to treat cysts at the early stages. If medications do not work, laparoscopic cyst excision is performed.

In the Hadassah Gynecology Department, the most effective treatment in Israel is carried out for other pathologies associated with hormonal imbalance, cyclic changes in the body. When choosing a therapy, preference is given to medication, an individually selected course.

Fast relief from urinary incontinence: urogynecology

Today it is one of the most common women’s health problems, which is treated in dozens of gynecological clinics in Israel and abroad. Hadassah urogynecologists have deep knowledge, extensive experience and brilliant skills to successfully and quickly cope with such disorders. Hadassah doctors are known for their tact, they are able to create an atmosphere of confidence, comfort and tranquility.

Incontinence is the result of weakening of the pelvic floor muscles. To strengthen them, a surgery is performed, which is based on the introduction of a mesh belt made of a special material, covering the urethra in the form of a loop. The belt is inserted through an incision into the vagina, the ends are brought out through small punctures and fixed in the lower abdomen (TVT), in the femur (TOT) or directly to the pelvis (NVT-Secur). The mesh material has the ability to stimulate the penetration of connective tissue through it. The belt strengthens the pelvic floor, tightens the bladder. There are no visible scars on the skin. According to patients` reviews treated in Israel, in the Gynecology Department, in 90% of cases and above, there is a complete disappearance of symptoms.

The best treatment is preventive care

Hadassah pays special attention to the prevention of cancer of the female reproductive system, especially cervical cancer. The immunization program has been introduced and is being implemented in large gynecological clinics in Israel. In Hadassah, for this purpose, the latest vaccines are used, which effectively prevent infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer, as well as the cell degeneration into malignant cells if infection occurs.

According to the study by the Israeli Cancer Association and the Israeli Ministry of Health in 2018, the incidence of cervical cancer in the country is lower than in all Western countries.

Thousands of patients from the CIS countries could afford treatment in Hadassah

Gynecology in Israel is based on the use of high technologies and unique techniques, but the cost of services remains very reasonable: according to the detailed study, it turns out that prices in Hadassah are quite democratic, on average they are 30% lower than European prices and 45-50% lower than American ones.
Every year, Hadassah gynecologists treat hundreds of patients with different financial capabilities from Moscow, Kiev, Minsk and dozens of large and small cities of the post-Soviet space.
The clinic pricelist has been drawn up under the control of the Israeli Ministry of Health, which constantly monitors the observance of its guidelines and the procedures quality.

Hadassah check-up: highest possible precision

The key to successful treatment is accurate diagnosis. The Israeli Ministry of Health constantly takes care of supplying the center with the latest diagnostic and treatment equipment. For examining patients and making an accurate diagnosis, expert-class equipment is installed in the clinic. Hadassah is the leading hospital in the country, where members of the government and public figures, spiritual leaders and celebrities, as well as thousands of ordinary citizens from dozens of countries around the world are examined and treated with the same care and attention.


To protect your health, you need to detect the disease in time, while there are chances of a complete cure without serious losses. For a good reason Israeli gynecologists recommend to undergo a full-fledged check-up in the field of gynecology on a regular basis, especially since its cost is quite affordable.
In addition to being examined by a gynecologist, it includes:

  • cytologic PAP test;
  • DNA analysis for HPV.

If cancer of the genitourinary organs is suspected, a vaginal ultrasound is performed to determine the exact location of the tumor and the extent of tissue damage.

All studies are carried out in one day. Do not waste time, discuss the price of the check-up and other details with our consultants by sending a message on the website or by dialing one of the numbers indicated above.


Magnetic resonance imaging is used in hundreds of medical institutions. But the study of MRI images requires deep knowledge and experience. In the countries of the former CIS there are still not enough such specialists. Hadassah diagnosticians trained in leading medical centers in Western Europe, Canada, and the United States and are able to detect the disease at the earliest stage.



Often computed tomography or its variety – PET-CT is needed for accurate diagnosis. There are few qualified experts in revising PET-CT images in the countries of the former CIS, and the device is used much less often than in Israel. A new unique DISCOVERY MI device by General Electrics has been installed in Hadassah, which has no analogues in the Middle East. High work speed, determination of the smallest changes in size of 2-3 mm provide early diagnosis of oncopathologies. And the reduction of the radiation level by 70%, in comparison with the old models, guarantees the safety for the patient’s health.


A minimally invasive procedure called hysteroscopy is used to examine the uterine cavity. Through the natural opening – the cervical canal – a hysteroscope is inserted, equipped with a light source and a video camera. The endometrium is examined, and if polyps, myomatous nodes, synechiae, adhesions are found, they are immediately excised. Hysteroscopic examination is also effective in stopping bleeding and correcting birth defects.

Diagnostic laparoscopy

A visual study method that helps the diagnostician to accurately establish the localization and nature of the pathology. Through a 1 cm incision, a thin laparoscope equipped with a camera and illumination is inserted, and the abdominal cavity becomes accessible for examination. With the help of the same laparoscope, therapeutic measures are also carried out: excision of adhesions, resection of the ovaries, cyst formations. The advantages of the procedure are information value, no visible scars, quick recovery.

Conization of the cervix

Medical and diagnostic procedure to remove the cone-shaped portion of the cervical canal and cervix. The received material is examined for the presence of degenerated cells. The procedure helps to identify a precancerous condition and eliminates the pathological process in the mucous membrane.


It is used to examine the vaginal cavity and cervix under high enlargement to detect precancerous changes. A biomaterial from a suspicious area is often taken for analysis during the procedure.


During the minimally invasive procedure, a biological material is taken using a special needle for further histological examination. The sample is sent to the laboratory; the fragment is examined to clarify the type of changes that have occurred (if the formation is malignant or benign).

Urodynamic test

Urodynamic test can help detect the cause of urinary incontinence. During the test, the bladder is artificially filled with a sterile solution and the reaction and dynamics of muscle contractions are monitored.
