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?
