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?

Poet Erez Biton, who was awarded the Israel Prize for Literature on Yom Ha’Atzmaut, used the occasion to warn against sponsors of the Boycott Israel movement. “Strident voices are being heard in the world including those who are challenging the very existence of the State of Israel,” he said. “There are even those among them […]


Yishai is joined in-studio by Ata Farhat, chairman of the Druze Zionist Council, to talk about his community’s celebration of Israeli independence. Though of a different religion and culture, the Druze fight in Israel’s wars and consider themselves an integral part of the Israeli nation-state. Find out why. Then, Yishai rants about the beauty of Israeli independence. He says that while Israel’s enemies paint the Jewish state as foreign to the Middle East landscape, the truth is that there is nothing more organic — more holistic — than the Jewish people being back in Judea. Finally, for his “Spiritual Cafe” segment, Yishai is joined by Rabbi Mike Feuer to discuss issues of Jewish statehood. Is there such a thing as “good” post-Zionism, for example? Listen in!

Israel in Animation

‘Zionism in Animation’, aims to tell the story of Zionism in a series of 100 short animated clips, and is the brainchild of Shlomo Blass, head of Rogatka.

Yishai broadcasts a speech delivered by Miriam Peretz, the mother of two fallen IDF soldiers, Uriel and Eliraz, during a “Friends of the IDF” dinner. In her address, she talks about her sacrifice, which she believes is necessary in the fight for the Jewish State. Then, Yishai reads a story he wrote, called “Zikaron” (remembrance), one passage of which is as follows: “In that one moment, I though of gratitude: I am so thankful to you, fallen paratrooper, fallen Jew, fallen brother.” Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by former MK Dr. Aryeh Eldad, former surgeon-general of the IDF and head of plastic surgery at Hadassah Hospital in Ein Karem. He says that if the state of Israel is the thesis of Zionism, then the Holocaust is the antithesis, and the days of remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust and the fallen soldiers and victims of terrorism is the synthesis.

Amazing new NBN video on Olim who love Israel. Why do YOU love Israel?

Yishai takes the occasion of Israel’s Remembrance Day for Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism — and last week’s Holocaust Remembrance Day — to express his view of Jewish victimhood. He says that while we commemorate Jewish and Israeli victims, the ideology of Jew-hatred is alive and well. Then, Yishai is joined by Shlomo Blass, the director of Rogatka, a studio that creates short, pro-Israel videos. Among the founders of Caroline Glick’s satirical Latma series, that poked fun at the Left, he is now launching a new project: “Zionism in Animation” — 100 short videos on different aspects of Zionism, including important historical moments and figures. Finally, Yishai is treated to a cameo appearance by VOI’s Pinchas Orban, who talks about the rationality behind belief in God.

Yishai is joined in-studio by Arab affairs analyst Bassem Eid to talk about the Temple Mount, the Holocaust and the Arab concern for dignity over identity. Then, Yishai is joined in-studio by David Bederman, coach to successful CEOs and entrepreneurs, to talk about Israeli independence. He says that Israel does not have a PR problem, but rather an identity crisis. Finally, Yishai is joined in-studio by Jerusalem Post editorial page editor Matthew Wagner to discuss the question of the peculiar phenomenon of the Left being in a global coalition with Islamic fundamentalists?

Well worth watching to the very end…

Yishai is joined in-studio by 88-year-old Kate Bernath, grandmother of his wife, Malkah, to hear her Holocaust testimonial: What was it like as a Hungarian Jew getting off the train at Auschwitz, and how it felt to have your mother separated from you forever by Dr. Mengele.

Yishai is joined in-studio by Walter Bingham, 91 — rescued from the Nazis as a Polish child on the Kindertransport and ended up fighting against them with the British — shares his memories of Kristallnacht and of facing the German Foreign Minister who was first to hang at Nuremberg.

Then, VOI Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the relationship between the Jewish holidays established in the past and the new holidays born in the modern era of Jewish statehood. They point out that Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day, the Day of Remembrance for the Fallen Soldiers of Israel and Victims of Terrorism, Israel Independence Day and Jerusalem Day all are marked during the “counting of the Omer” — the 50 days between Passover and Shavuot (Pentecost).
