Josef Haik

Sheba Tel Hashomer Medical Center Clinical Partner Team Member

I am the Head of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and also the Director of the Burn Center, at Sheba Medical Center. I graduated my medical school at the University of Bologna, Italy where I fell in love with the spirit, venue, and the good food in Italy. I completed my fellow training at the world-famous Firefighters Burn and Intensive Care Unit at the Alberta University Hospital in Edmonton, Canada.
I am passionate about improving the outcomes of my patients, and involved in many basic-translational and clinical research. Our department is the leading department in treating burns in Israel, and in 2019 I founded the first GMP laboratory for skin engineering and skin bank. Our team aims to perform a miracle to every patient not only by saving their lives but also recovering their appearance and rehabilitation. Best care for my patients includes providing them with aesthetic outcomes that they desire. In my mind the CINDERELLA project will help to find a balance of both.
