2. First Time Ever in Israel: Noninvasive Brain Surgery
Medical history was made at Rambam Health Care Campus on November 2013 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.
ExAblate Neuro is the trade name for the noninvasive surgical treatment that the patient underwent. The procedure, which targets and ablates brain tissue through an intact skull, has been made possible by the marriage of MRI-guidance and ultrasound-ablation expertise.The pioneering technology was developed in Israel by InSightec. The company was founded in 1999 with the visionary idea of applying ultrasound expertise to noninvasive surgery. "We are the only company with the technology to provide noninvasive ultrasound therapy in the brain," says InSightec Vice President of Research & Development Mr. Eyal Zadicario.
