Best cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons 2022 – Forbes Ranking

Best cardiologists in Israel 2022 - Forbes

Dear patient,

Please find below the list of the best cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons of 2022 in the central area of Israel, according to the ranking of Forbes magazine. These experts were recommended by doctors of other specializations in the biggest Israeli clinics, such as as Sheba, Assuta, Ichilov, Beilinson and others.

Cardiology in Israel reinvents itself one in seven years in a variety of new drugs and advanced technologies. Israeli cardiologists base their work on research and facts only,  offering for patients the efficient, fast and the most dedicated treatment.

Interventional cardiology specialists are using catheterization, without opening the chest and without surgery. Until about a decade ago the work was in the coronary arteries, opening of blocked arteries in patients with heart attacks. Today Israeli doctors invade treatment in structural heart diseases: they are able to repair or replace valves by the catheter, and usually under local anesthesia, with hospitalization of a maximum of two days. It’s just a revolution in cardiology.

Most patients prefer catheterization to surgery. This treatment is safer and just as effective.

We coordinate leading cardiologists’ appointments and treatment in Israel for people from abroad (international patients). So if you don’t live in Israel, you can still get a Doctor Second Opinion from the Forbes doctors in Israel 2022 list.

Contact us to book a consultation. We will promptly coordinate you with an expert – cardiologist in Israel as soon as possible.
