Israeli Noninvasive Surgery Heals Chronic Tremor

Israeli Noninvasive Surgery Heals Chronic Tremor

This past November, medical history was made at Rambam Health Care Campus, when an Israeli essential-tremor patient successfully underwent targeted surgical ablation of deep-seated brain tissue through an intact skull, a radical therapy made possible by the marriage of MRI-guidance and ultrasound-ablation technologies.

Sami Zangi, 73, was suffering from essential tremor, a slowly progressive movement disorder whose cause lies deep within the brain. After MRI-guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery (FUS) at Rambam Hospital, Mr. Zangi got up from the MRI table tremor-free, smiled, and requested paper and a pen. “Remember what I tried to tell you a week ago?” he asked. Surrounded by his wife and family, he wrote in a steady and beautiful hand, “If you will it, it is no dream.”

This one’s for you, Theodor Herzl!

    This is why the entire world hates the Jews. It is because all we want to do is heal, create,teach, and inform. This miracle represented by the Rambam Hospital shows that we want to heal the world. What does Israel get in return? Missiles, Rockets, slaughter in the streets and schools. Anti Semitism, Thank God we have doctors that care about humanity, and thank God they are in Israel who is leading the way towards world peace.

  2. Val Anderson says:

    I agree, Israel has done more medically & technologically, it's amazing

  3. James Johnston Ferguson says:

    I have got a similar condition -could we see this surgery in U.K.

  4. This is amazing and I hope people around the world benefit from this soon.

  5. The more I see, the more it seems that there is a force that wants to destroy all life on the planet. One way of achieving that darkness is by removing the healers. Where today, an Israeli cures tremors in a patient's hands, another could come later that learns how to prevent tremors in the earth's crusts beneath densely populated areas. The forces against creation and the Creator know the value of Jews….it is the pawns, the anti-semites, who've been told to devalue Jews, but their masters know how valuable they really are. Kill a Jew today, and they can prevent the curing of cancer tomorrow. Kill a million Jews, and who knows how many solutions to the world's problems can be stopped. I don't know why they seek the darkness, but I don't want to feel the vengeance of the Creator once the darkness has been allowed to extinguish the lights of His creation.

    This is great but how risky is this? And how long will it last? Do I have to go to
    Israel to get the surgery?

A little bit of humor on a serious Pesach subject.


Political Strategist Elie Pieprz and Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan join Yishai to “talk Pesach” and and share their tips for the dreaded Passover preparations(i.e. clean early, clean often.) The issue of food, of course, comes up: What tastes better — Pesach lazagna or matza Pizza? Why do Sephardi Jews eat things during the holiday that Ashkenazi Jews do not? And what the heck is “gebrachats”? Then, Ayala Shapiro, aged 11, was critically wounded by a Molotov cocktail hurled by a terrorist. Ayala, who suffered third-degree burns over 40% of her body, is facing a long, complicated and painful road to recovery, after days of hovering between life and death. But you can help. Tune in to hear how. Finally, Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to get ready for the BIG Shabbat — “Shabbat HaGadaol” — before Passover. Tune in to find out more!

Seth Frantzman and Mati Wagner, op-ed and editorial page editors (respectively) at The Jerusalem Post, join Yishai in-studio. Seth just returned to Israel from a food-filled and uber-capitalist trip to Dubai. Mati just came back from a fact-finding mission about slain Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman. Having both spent election night at the headquarters of the Joint Arab List in Nazareth, they discuss the accusations of bigotry against PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Then, the recent J Street conference featured remarks by White House Chief-of-Staff Denis McDonough, who said that Israel is engaged in a 50-year occupation which “must end.” The Jews in the audience clapped wildly and showed great excitement when the potential advent of a Palestinian state was discussed. Finally, Alan Elsner, Vice President for Communications at J Street, an organization that identifies itself as the “political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans,” joins Yishai from Washington to explain.

In the 1950s, the Israel Defense Forces engaged in retaliatory missions after terrorist attacks. Was this a legitimate expression of defense? Is the spirit of robust deterrence still alive in Israel? Yishai shares an incredible story with Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan about the three kidnapped youths who were massacred last summer, and how justice came to their killers. Jeremy also weighs in on potential foreign “punishment” of Israel and provides coalition updates.

Then, Pastor Dave McGarrah and Charlie Schiffman, co-hosts of the popular radio show, “The Teacher and the Preacher,” join Yishai in-studio. In Israel on tour with his flock, Pastor Dave, a Christian, and Charlie, a Jew, prove that Christian-Jewish relations can reach a new level. Listen in!

Nothing like watching reruns of the classics on a lazy Sunday. Somehow, they always seem so timely.

Yishai rants about Ahmed Tibi, leader of the Arab Movement for Change, an Israeli political party, who said, “We thought the Israeli public wanted change, but instead acted in a tribal way, and therefore we are left with Netanyahu.” Then, Zeev Ben-Shachar, director of Israel Education at Jerusalem U., joins Yishai in-studio to deconstruct the techniques of the Israel-haters and to lay out a strategy for fighting anti-Israel bias on campuses. Finally, Rabbi Mike Feuer and Yishai take the studio outside on a beautiful Jerusalem day to talk about the challenging issues of faith when things don’t go our way and the resulting anger. They also provide an “intro” to the Book of Leviticus and discuss the challenging issue of animal sacrifice.

Yishai is joined first by Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan and then by VOI Bureau Chief Daniel Seaman to discuss how PM Benjamin Netanyahu beat the New York Times, the V-15 campaign, US President Barack Obama — and how the strategies of his enemies backfired. Then, David P. Goldman (known as “Spengler” in his erudite columns), is Senior Fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, Associate Fellow at the Middle East Forum and author of “How Civilizations Die (and Why Islam is Dying, Too”. He joins Yishai to discuss the hegemonic appetite of Iran, America’s explicit acceptance of it, and the mandate that PM Netanyahu has received from Israel’s voters to fight it.

Finally, Alex Traiman joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the upcoming coalition and the spiritual significance of the Likud victory, using the Purim miracle as a parable.
