Heart surgery in Israel

Heart surgery is an umbrella term describing multiple types of interventions on the cardiac muscle. These include CABG, valve replacement, arrhythmia treatment, pacemaker implantation, and so on. Israeli medical centers Assuta and Sheba Tel HaShomer are considered world leaders in this field.


  • Extensive blood work (CBC, SMAC, lipid profile, cardiac enzymes)
  • Assessment of myocardial infraction risk factors
  • Stress echocardiography (for assessment of coronary vessels, myocardium and heart chambers)
  • Cardiologist/cardiac surgeon consultation
  • Coronary angiogram (if necessary)


Price of treatment program will depend on the result of the aforementioned investigations.

Heart Surgeries Commonly Performed in Israel

Israeli cardiac surgeons have an excellent track record dealing with even the most complicated of heart conditions. Listed below are some of the most common procedures performed in Israel. Please contact us using the form on the right if you require a treatment that is not listed.

Pacemaker Implantation (Insertion)

A pacemaker is a device that regulates the beating of the heart in order to maintain an adequate heart rate. This is achieved by the device monitoring the patient’s heart and “signaling” it via electrodes when irregular heartbeat is detected.

Pacemaker insertion is normally performed under local anesthesia. The nature of the procedure depends on the type of device used. A traditional pacemaker is inserted through a small incision in your upper chest. First, a lead is inserted (through a vein) into your heart. It is then connected to a pacemaker, which is implanted subcutaneously. Once this is done, the surgeon programs the device and closes the incision. Alternatively, leadless pacemakers are advanced into the heart by means of a catheter through a vein (with the incision being made near the upper thigh).

Aortic Valve Replacement

Aortic valve replacement surgeries are performed due to stenosis or regurgitation (leaking). Depending on your treating physician’s recommendations, the prosthesis will either be mechanical or a tissue valve (made from human or donor tissue).
