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?

Yishai rejects what he sees as the “Israel-is-to-blame” narrative of President Obama’s speech at the Adas Israel synagogue in Washington DC. Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Orthodox Union senior managing director Rabbi Steven Weil and director of leadership development Rabbi Ari Rockoff to discuss the future of American Jewry. They discuss their latest initiative: meeting with 18-year-olds spending a gap year in Israel, to encourage them to involve their counterparts in the US, who have grown distant from their Judaism.


Why does Shavuot (Festival of Weeks or Pentecost) have so many themes running through it? Agriculture, Mount Sinai, the Ten Commandments, the Book of Ruth, King David, the Baal Shem Tov, the consumption of dairy products and more all come together on this holiday, that begins Saturday night. Yishai is joined in-studio by Rabbi Mike Feuer to make sense of it all, ahead of the great “revelation.” Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by Nachman and Sruli — the Solomon Brothers — who created their own band of bluegrass music, infused with spiritualism and folk rock, influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Their special blend of music has gained them numerous TV appearances and rave reviews. Their live performance at VOI will blow you away.

Rav Bina’s Shavuot message and an update on his grandson who was injured in a terror attack.

Yishai is joined by 95-year-old Jerusalem resident Dan Nadel, a five-time decorated WWII hero, who led troops in the Battle of the Bulge and in the liberation of France from the Nazis. In honor of VE Day, commemorating the Allied victory over Nazi Germany (marked on May 8), Nadel, tells the tale of fighting across Europe, and eventually fulfilling his Zionist dream. Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by foreign correspondent Anne-Marie O’Connor to talk about her award-winning book, “The Lady in Gold,” that chronicles the fight for restitution of Gustav Klimt’s iconic “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer,” confiscated by the Nazis in Vienna just prior to World War II.

Yishai is joined by political correspondent Raoul Wootliff for a news round-up. Raoul reviews the new seats in Knesset, the old Druze IDF unit being disbanded and PM Netanyahu’s latest attempt to restart negotiations, right after declaring that Jerusalem will never be divided. Then, Why is Saudi Arabia getting along with Israel? Could it be because of a four-letter word called Iran? And why is it dissing the US? Yishai is joined by VOI Arab affairs analyst Bassem Eid, who sheds light on Saudi Arabian intentions. Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by Dr. Haim Asa, one of Israel’s leading military strategists, who served as adviser to the Foreign Ministry and as the late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin’s national security adviser. The c-author of “Diffused Warfare,” he talks about the future of the IDF and Israel’s struggle to survive in the Middle East.

An American conservative talk radio show host, a Times of Israel blogger and Jerusalem Post editors talk with Yishai about the issues of the day.

Who built and rebuilt the walls of the Holy City over and over again — and Why? Yishai is taken on a historical journey through Jerusalem with with master tour guide Meir Eisenman for a Jerusalem Day special retrospective. Then, Yishai is joined by Rabbi Shimshon HaKohen Nadel to discuss the Jewish People’s eternal connection to Jerusalem, and plays songs of yearning for the Holy City’s total redemption. If God chose to make an abode for Himself in the lower world in this particular place — the embodiment of unity — why is the world trying so hard to divide (internationalize) it?

“You should fight them even if they do not fight you.”

In the lead-up to Jerusalem Day, Yishai hosts three relevant guests: one American, another Israeli and a third Palestinian. Listen in and get inspired!

Question: Should we wash our hands in the bathroom with soap and water, or by pouring water from a vessel with handles three times, alternating hands? I have heard it said that a vessel is used only in the morning upon awakening. What are the rules pertaining to young children? What is the protocol if no vessel is available? Additionally, may we dry our hands via an electric dryer?
