Specialist Physicians

 

Diabetes Specialist PhysicianDiabetes Specialist Physician

Most Diabetes complications can be avoided through effective, efficient balance of sugar levels. The Diabetes specialist physician collects all necessary information from the various consultants and determines necessary follow-up methods, relevant tests, and appropriate methods of treatment in order to achieve an optimal balance of blood sugar, blood lipids, and blood pressure.

The Diabetes physician oversees the patient’s medical file. This physician operates in full cooperation with the other specialists, offering comprehensive and regular consultation on every step and decision made about the patient. Management of the medical file under one roof saves the diabetic unnecessary running around and the burden of coping with different, separate opinions.

 

Podiatrist

Foot care is particularly important for the Diabetes patient, due to the increased frequency of foot nerve injury, sclerosis, and damage to blood supply in the foot.

The podiatrist will perform a complete examination of your feet, including wounds, fungal infections, or deformations.

 

OphthalmologistDiabetes ophthalmologist

Retinopathy is the number one cause of blindness in working-age people in the Western world. An ophthalmologist who specializes in retina problems, increased intraocular pressure, and other conditions characteristic to diabetes patients will take an up-to-date photograph of the retina. The Center uses special, advanced equipment for fundus photography, eliminating the need for pupil dilation.

 

Vascular Physician

In order to diagnose the level of damage to the blood vessels and build an appropriate treatment plan, the Center performs tests using equipment that enables non-invasive testing of the blood vessels, such as ultrasound, pressure machine, and plesthysmography. For intervention in pathological situations, the hospital supports a wide range of blood vessel operations, performed by specialists in the field of vascular surgery.

 

Nephrologist

Nephropathy, or kidney damage, develops in more than one-third of diabetes patients. A specialist in this field offers consultations on high blood pressure and kidney function.

 

Cardiologist

Diabetes patients have an increased risk of developing heart disease, blockages, and even strokes. To prevent cardiac damage and identify the most effective treatment, a physician specializing in heart disease checks the relevant cardiac function parameters and gives consultations.

 

Urologist

About 30% of diabetes patients suffer from problems in personal function. The urologist at the Center offers consultations in accordance with patient requests and medical history.
