The operating room of the future

The operating room of the future

This futuristic surgery is being done right now.
Picture cancer surgery, hysterectomy, Parkinson’s, tumors – treated non-invasively!

InSightec, a company which is headquartered in Tirat Carmel near Haifa, Israel and draws 80 percent of its staff from Technion graduates, has developed a surgical system to treat tumors inside the body that perhaps can cure many different illnesses electronically without having to cut open the human body. This Israeli innovation has the potential to transform how medicine will be practiced internationally, enabling many patients to recover from various illnesses much quicker than they presently are able to do utilizing traditional surgery. Indeed, it can perhaps replace the hospitalizations that follow surgery with out-patient care.

This is important because the government has suggested that there is limited or no benefits to this test. However there were many studies that DID show a connection and benefit to PSA screening. Since ambiguity exists, our recommendation is to continue with yearly PSA screenings for men at risk. It is more important how we interpret the test rather than lump everyone into one unified group (the old “shades of gray rather than black or white).
