Our patients speak
Feedback by a patient from Romania who underwent endovascular surgery for revascularization (rechanneling of the blood vessel, recreating a space) done by inserting stents in the Neurology department of Hadassah Hospital. The surgery was brilliantly carried out by Professor Jose Koen.
“I came to Israel carried on a gurney, but I walked to the plane that flew me back to Bucharest; I didn’t even need a cane. It is a miracle — and if I had stayed in Romania, today I would not be alive.”
