Tel Aviv Medical Center
WHO definition of Health is – a state of complete physical , mental and social well-being and not merely and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
With this in mind on one hand and with the understanding that as a doctor and caregiver my duty is to serve the public who come to get health service – I found that leaving my patients the freedom to use Cannabis is the best that I can offer them.
I am a pain specialist for almost 4 decades – I have seen patients with pain from various reasons – from acute terribly injured to chronic long standing low back pain, from dying patints with excruciating cancer pain to pains from an amputation of a fingertip, from a crying baby to a young strong adult muted with suffer.
Cannabis which was presented to me by my patients – it was the answer for many of them as the sole agent that helped them to recover and to regain their WELL BEING.
I hope to bring foreward my observations and experience and to enable my coleagues the doctors and scientists find out more about the cannabinoids the mechanisms of their action and the endocannabinoid system on one hand and on the ways we could make this treatment more available to those who can benefit from it
My office is in Tel Aviv – from there I do my clinical work and research.
Though the state of Israel made it possible for certain patients to have excess to Cannabis -the regulatory
system is very clumsy and the establishment including the medical establishment is making it very hard for the individual patient to get the proper license. I fight for the patients rights to get their treatment in a decent and controlled fashion – the proper amount and a pure substance
I have been working in Tel Aviv Medical Center for many years as a pain specialist and anesthesiologist.
I served for one year as the head the pain services in Haddassa Ein Karem. Studied medicine in Tel Aviv university and did a fellowship in Albert Einstein medical center in New York
