Implantation of Artificial Sphincter
A unique surgery to implant an artificial sphincter rectum was conducted by the leading surgeon Dr. Ziv Yehiel at "Herzliya Medical Center" private hospital.
A fifty- eight- year -old female patient had suffered from fecal incontinence for four years. Conservative treatments did not have successful results.
Specialists at HMC diagnosed the patient with a severe impairment of innervation rectal sphincter - the muscle which controls allocation and prevents spontaneous defecation.
After a successful implantation of an artificial sphincter rectum, the patient was relieved of the distressing symptoms of incontinence and was able to return to normal life.
Herzliya Medical Center specialists are collaborating with world research centers and constantly introducing innovative technology to enable patients to regain health due to disease or injury function.
