As mentioned, Defense Minister Bnei Gantz arrived last night at Sheba Hospital in Tel Hashomer to undergo a medical procedure on his back. Gantz underwent a series of tests accompanied by the medical staff of the orthopedic department at the hospital.
The operation on his back took place in the morning, in order to overcome an injury that has been dragging on since his military service and has worsened in recent months.
The hospital said that at 1 p.m., a briefing will be given by the operating team headed by Dr. Moshe Lewinkopf, director of the orthopedic department, and Dr. Alon Friedlander, director of the back surgery unit in the orthopedic department, and Dr. Dina Orkin, director of the operating room department at Sheba.
After health wishes from the entire political spectrum for the defense minister, his former partner and current rival MK Yair Lapid also recalled wishing him late recovery wishes on Twitter: “I wish Bnei Gantz a speedy recovery and good health,” Lapid wrote.
