The Sharet Oncology Institute at Hadassah University Clinic has become the only oncology center in Israel to be included in the prestigious ranking of the world’s best specialized oncology clinics by Newsweek magazine for the year 2022.

CAR-T therapy

Hadassah offers the world’s first outpatient CAR-T therapy. This therapy was developed at the Hadassah Clinic for the treatment of multiple myeloma, AL amyloidosis, and other malignant tumors that can be targeted through BCMA (B-cell maturation antigen).

The method involves altering the genes inside specific immune cells so that they can recognize and destroy cancer. Besides Israel, CAR-T therapy is only available in two other countries in the world (the USA and China).

According to Prof. Stepenski, this treatment can significantly prolong the lives of patients suffering from myeloma and greatly improve their quality of life.

Proton radiotherapy

In late June 2023, the first proton radiotherapy center in Israel was officially opened, the result of close collaboration between the Hadassah Clinic and P-Cure Ltd.

Now, Israeli patients suffering from head and neck cancer, recurrent brain cancer, or malignant tumors located near nervous centers no longer need to travel abroad, live there for extended periods, and spend vast sums of money (at the very least, $100,000 or more).

Proton therapy targets neoplasms that are resistant to conventional photon radiotherapy, has no side effects, and is much safer. Moreover, its cost in Israel will be significantly lower than in the United States.


Alpha DaRT is a type of brachytherapy known as Diffusing Alpha-emitters Radiation Therapy. This method was developed by the Israeli company Alpha Tau Medical in 2017, and in 2022, it began to be successfully applied at the Hadassah Clinic.

The essence of the method involves implanting microelements containing Radium-224 into the tumor, emitting alpha particles. Alpha radiation has several advantages compared to traditional photon radiation, one of the main ones being its excellent impact on neoplasms resistant to conventional radiotherapy.

ONCOSIL is a new form of brachytherapy, recently approved by the FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration). This brachytherapy is designed for patients with locally advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer in the late stages of development. In late May 2023, the ONCOSIL technology was first applied at Hadassah University Clinic. The procedure yielded excellent results.

Treatment of melanoma

Since 2002, Professor Michal Lotem’s vaccine has helped more than 200 patients suffering from stage 3 and 4 melanoma. The melanoma treatment is based on Adaptive Cell Therapy (ACT), using the patient’s own immune T-cells. Michal Lotem studied ACT under the renowned Professor Steven Rosenberg, the creator of the popular form of Adaptive Cell Therapy today known as the “TIL protocol.” Therefore, it is not surprising that both ACT and TIL are applied with exceptional effectiveness for melanoma treatment at the Hadassah Clinic today.

Surgical Oncology

Hadassah is known worldwide as a leader in the field of oncological surgery and intraoperative chemotherapy.

Infusion chemotherapy through the hepatic artery

The Hadassah Clinic is the first clinic outside the United States to use the Intera 3000 pump. Currently, it is the only such device approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for delivering chemotherapy to the liver through the hepatic artery. Chemotherapy with this pump is used in two main cases: when there are liver metastases due to colorectal cancer and when primary hepatocellular carcinoma develops. Clinical studies conducted over many years at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York show that infusion chemotherapy through the hepatic artery doubles patient survival rates, significantly reduces the number of recurrences, and greatly increases the chances of complete recovery.

The procedure is performed by the experienced surgeon Dr. Muhammad Adileh.


The Hadassah Clinic excels in the treatment of aneurysms, stenosis, congenital deformities, and many other vascular pathologies of the head and neck.

Hadassah is the only medical institution in the Middle East where patients over the age of 80 are treated for strokes. In January 2018, a similar operation was performed on a 99-year-old patient.

In 2018, the neurosurgeons at Hadassah Clinic became the first in Israel to use the unique and most powerful surgical microscope to date, the KINEVO 900, created by the renowned German company Zeiss. This device elevates neurosurgery to a new level: its robotic system optimally controls lighting and viewing angles, the endoscopic instrument allows access to previously unreachable areas, and blood flow visualization ensures that the doctor does not disrupt it with their actions.

Hadassah is the only medical institution in the world to use a protocol that allows patients to undergo a CT or MRI scan and begin treatment within just 30 minutes from the moment of admission to the department.

The neurosurgeons at Hadassah Clinic treat newborns from the moment of their birth and elderly individuals of almost any age. The age of 99 has been a current record, but according to Prof. Jose Cohen, even 100 years is not the limit.

In 2022 doctors at the Hadassah Clinic performed a rare procedure just 2 hours after the birth of a baby through the umbilical cord, which was intentionally left uncut to create a channel for brain catheterization.

The procedure was carried out by the world-renowned neurosurgeon and head of the brain catheterization department at the Hadassah Clinic, Prof. Jose Cohen. Catheterization became necessary after the detection of a rare malformation of the Galen vein in the fetus during a routine check-up. This malformation can lead to dangerous cardiac or renal insufficiency, liver dysfunction, and brain disorders.

Spinal Surgery

Hadassah is a global leader in the application of robotic systems and artificial intelligence in the field of spinal surgery.

The Israeli startup Pathkeeper has received approval from the FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) for the use of a unique, non-radiation-based navigation system for spinal surgeries.

This system allows for real-time tracking of the position of surgical instruments in relation to the spine and nerves. Images are captured using a 3D camera, and artificial intelligence analyzes these images by comparing them to preoperative CT scans.

The innovative system was created by Erez Lampert, the director and founder of Pathkeeper, a specialist in 3D medical visualization, and Dr. Josh Shreder, the head of the spinal surgery department at Hadassah Clinic.

In 2021, Hadassah Clinic acquired a unique robotic system called “Mazor X Stealth Edition” from the company “Medtronic,” which is based on developments by Israeli specialists. This acquisition enabled the clinic’s orthopedic surgeons to successfully perform a highly complex spinal surgery, saving a 70-year-old patient from paralysis.


The prestigious American magazine Newsweek featured the cardiology department of Hadassah Clinic in its recently released special edition titled “Best Specialized Clinics in the World – Cardiology 2021.”

In early 2021, for the first time in Israel, Hadassah Clinic began performing ablation of hard-to-reach atrial areas through the chest, offering hope for recovery to patients with arrhythmia who had no suitable treatment options before.

In March 2019, Hadassah became the only clinic in Israel where mitral valve correction is performed using third-generation MitraClip technology.
