Military physicians from the three countries will gather in Israel for a conference
The conference will feature Prof. Vladimir Khominetz, chief orthopedist of the Russian military, and Dr. Joseph Hsu, a senior member of the US Army Medical Corps with an expertise in limb lengthening, deformity correction and trauma. Other participants from the IDF Medical Corps as well as the Health Ministry will also participate.
Western Galilee Medical Center director Dr. Mas’ad Barhum has said the treatment of wounded Syrians in recent years has forced the hospital to treat injuries and cases that until now were unknown in medical literature.
The hospital adopted a new medical method that combines orthopedic treatment with plastic surgery and vascular surgery, and its doctors have succeeded in saving wounded limbs at a higher rate than the global average.
