 Assuta hospital doctors helped their colleagues in Ukraine save a girl

Doctors at Assuta Ashdod Hospital remotely accompanied doctors in Ukraine during the operation and helped save the leg of a 16-year-old girl who was hit by a Russian shell.

Haruts Sheva portal reports.

Ukrainian doctors first considered amputation surgery. However, before that, they decided to consult with colleagues from the Israeli hospital.

Israeli doctors discouraged amputation and accompanied their Ukrainian colleagues via WhatsApp video link throughout the complex operation.

According to the director Department of Pediatric Orthopedics in "Assuta" Dr. Ron Lamdan, Ukrainian doctors contacted the head of the pediatric surgery department of the hospital, Ukrainian Vadim Kapuller, with whom they are in close contact.

“Although there was huge muscle damage, in our opinion, it was wrong to amputate. Our consultation helped them decide not to do this and try to save the leg instead. We hope we succeeded. . During the video call, they asked questions and we answered. It lasted about 20 minutes,” said Dr. Lamdan.

Dr. Vadim Kapuller said that the girl was in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator after several surgeries. Allegedly, he is trying to take the victim to Israel to continue treatment.
