Orthopedics Trauma Unit saves Border Patrol Officer

“It is a miracle that I am here, living breathing and standing. The treatment I received in Shaare Zedek was above and beyond. I thank my family members who came all the way from Haifa and supported me through the hard times “.


Oz, a Border Patrol Officer, was injured by a stolen car that was trying to get away. He suffered severe bruising all over his body. He was treated in the field by paramedics, a MADA volunteer stopped the bleeding and Oz was rushed to Shaare Zedek. Oz underwent a series of surgeries led by Dr. Viktor Vaisbrud, the Head of our Orthopedic Trauma Unit which put him back on his feet.


Oz, we wish you many years of good health and appreciate your service protecting the people of Israel.
