Department of Plastic Surgery
The Department of Plastic Surgery at the Sheba Medical Center was founded in 1953 by Professor Lyon Bornstein.
The Department operates an outpatient clinic, which offers consultations, various diagnostic methods, the removal of scars and care of postoperative wounds. The doctors receive patients according to their specialization.
The following Offices constitute the Department of Plastic Surgery:
- General Office;
- Office for Preoperative Preparation;
- Office for Melanoma and various skin tumors;
- Breast Reconstruction Unit;
- Burn Unit;
- Clinic for Surgery of Congenital Malformations;

- and many others.
- The patient receives written information about the upcoming surgery, as well as verbal instructions from medical personnel.
- For some types of surgery the patient will need to buy some devices (e.g. orthopedic corset, etc.).
The Department of Plastic Surgery has 17 beds for admission. Hospitalized patients receive all necessary procedures and personal care, which include regular examination during the medical rounds, blood and other diagnostic tests. The bulk of the procedures is carried out during the day, and only the necessary procedures are performed at night. The presence of visitors is strictly limited, in order to provide the highest quality patient care. During medical rounds and medical procedures, visitors are asked to wait outside the office.
For convenience of the hospitalized patients, there is a “TV corner” with a drinking booth for hot and cold drinks and a fridge. It is possible to rent a personal phone and / or television. There are two shopping centers at the hospital campus with a variety of shops and a nearby hotel offers comfortable rooms for the convenience of families of hospitalized patients.
At the discharge, the patient receives all the necessary recommendations for further treatment and rehabilitation, which includes, if appropriate, additional medical procedures, medication, diet, physical activity, etc. Also, patients are assigned to undergo the medical check in the outpatient clinic.
