One year ago, Dr. David Bernstein served as a physician in the Israel Defense Forces in the war Operation Protective Edge in Gaza where he treated Israel’s wounded soldiers.
Many do not realize that the situation in the Middle East is not black and white. Ironically, Dr. Bernstein recently and successfully treated a young Palestinian patient of 18 years old from the same Gazan area where he served Israel just one year before.
The patient came to Rambam after being treated unsuccessfully at 2 other hospitals with a tumor in his head, the size of an orange. Surgery this type is unique, extremely complicated and requires surgeons in both neurosurgery and otorhinolaryngology. The surgeons had to enter through the head and nose. After 11 hours, they were able to successfully remove 90% of the tumor.

Thank you to Mitchell Silverman, 13, from NY. For a Bar Mitzvah project, he had friends donate books and toys to Rambam.
