An orthopedic surgeon from Jerusalem has been the victim of an epidemic of flu-like symptoms in his practice, leading to him having to cancel work.
Dr. Avi Gartner is a gastroenterologist who practices at a Tel Aviv hospital.
The infection has affected him because of his medical background.
He is a member of the Jewish medical society and has also been involved in the field of orthopedia.
Gartner said he was working on the floor of his practice when he began feeling symptoms in the late afternoon.
“I came to the hospital to see if my symptoms were related to flu,” he said.
Gartson said that the doctor noticed he had the flu symptoms that had been coming on his feet.
He also noticed that he was coughing and that his hands were shaking.
Gross said that when the doctor called him, Gartners condition worsened and he was forced to cancel his work.
“The reason why I cancelled my work was because I had to cancel my orthopedies surgery,” Gartener said.
In addition to cancelling his surgeries, Gartson lost several of his patients.
The gastroenterology department has a list of those patients, but Gartnings office is not among them.
“When I was canceling my surgeries, I was able to find a place for them in the hospital,” Gartsen said.
The gastroenterologists office has also seen an increase in the number of patients who are coming into their office complaining of flu symptoms, Garteres wife, Yael, said.
Yael said that many of the patients she saw are in their 30s and 40s, and that they are mostly from the area of Jerusalem.
“They are sick because they have not had the chance to take their medicine and because they are not used to the pressure of the office environment,” Yael said.
“We are in a period of a lot of uncertainty, which is very difficult for the patients.
This is not just about the doctors.
It is also for the hospital as well.”
Yael Gartinger said that her husband has been working with the patients in his office since October and has been very effective.
She said that she has not been able to see her husband at work since he canceled his surgeries and has not seen him since.
Gertner is the first gastroenterological resident to cancel a surgery due to the flu.
He said that they had not been informed of the virus in advance and that the hospital had not provided him with a vaccine.
According to the Hebrew language medical bulletin, the flu is the most common cause of hospitalization among the population of patients with acute respiratory illness (ARDS).
In a similar situation, in November, the hospital issued a warning about the possibility of an outbreak in its outpatient surgery center in the city of Ashkelon.
The alert warned that some patients who were admitted to the surgery center due to their respiratory conditions may have had flu-related complications, including pneumonia.
The warning stated that if a patient with respiratory problems develops flu symptoms or coughs or sneezes, they should not go to the outpatient surgery surgery center and they should be isolated.
The Ashkelman hospital had a similar warning.
The health authorities advised residents in the Ashkel manor to stay at home, and the hospital urged people to stay home until they could be tested for influenza.
In the meantime, Gertner said that he will continue to perform surgeries in the operating room until he can get his respiratory health back.
