Thanks to the Doctors at Shaare Zedek, Shaked can Hear

Soon after Shaked was born at Shaare Zedek Medical Center, the staff told her parents that she had profound hearing loss. After exploring different options, Shaked began treatment at AV Israel, a hearing rehabilitation organization. This past week, at nine months of age, Shaked underwent surgery for chochlear implants.

Her grandmother, Anne, originally from London, shared the experience in her blog, “Thank G-d Shaked was born in Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem. That is where she was diagnosed shortly after birth, and that is where her operation was carried out yesterday. Shaare Zedek’s cochlear implant department is one of the leading ones in the country and is headed by one of the most talented, kindest and modest doctors I have ever met, Dr. Ronen Peretz… A real mensch. Dr. Peretz himself came out halfway through the operation to tell us that the first side was a success and that they were going to proceed with the 2nd side. We did not expect the doctor himself to come out. We expected at most a nurse or secretary… I would like to thank Dr. Ronen Peretz and all the staff at Shaare Zedek for their wonderful treatment of little Shaked, and their warm and professional attitude. May Hashem always guide them in their healing and care.”
