Professor Yoav Mintz

Professor Mintz MD, is an Associate Professor of Surgery,
specializing in Foregut Surgery, and focusing his clinical activities on benign and malignant diseases of the esophagus and stomach.
He serves as the Director of the Division of Foregut Surgery at Hadassah Medical Center, Director of the Robotic Surgery Program and the Director of the Center for Innovative Surgery.
As a pioneer in the field, Prof Mintz continues to drive forward surgical innovation in Israel, having formed several startup companies dealing with surgical innovation, serving on their advisory boards. Over the past five years he served as the Clinical Director of Biodesign Israel, and is currently the Chair of the Technology Committee of the European Association for Endoscopic Surgeons (EAES).
As a leading expert in minimally invasive and robotic surgery, Prof. Mintz focuses his research on the development of medical devices for advanced MIS procedures, as well as developing new surgical techniques enabling less invasive procedures for the treatment of high-profile diseases, such as diabetes and GERD. Under his guidance, several start-up companies have successfully developed innovative products, which following preclinical research and initial first in man operations at Hadassah under his guidance, are now being used worldwide.
Following extensive experience in magnetic field applications in MIS Prof. Mintz transferred his knowledge from the Macro scale to the Nanoscale, currently researching options for the treatment of nonresectable cancers using magnetic nanoparticles.
