Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, aged 73, is set to undergo a medical procedure to have a pacemaker fitted, according to a recent statement from his office. The development comes after he recently suffered a health-related health condition that required him to be hospitalized for a short period of time.
An unexpected turn of events
A few days ago, Netanyahu was discharged from the Sheba Medical Center after a worrying bout of dizziness. His health concerns have prompted his medical team to take immediate action. After his dizziness incident, it has now been decided to implant a cardiac pacemaker.
It was told that on Sunday, Netanyahu reached Sheba Medical Center to start the pacemaker transplant process. The Times of Israel covered these events, highlighting the important trip ahead for the prime minister.
Interim Leadership Strategy
According to an official statement from Netanyahu's office, during the surgical procedure, which will be performed under sedation, Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Minister Yariv Lenin will step in to manage Netanyahu's duties. The purpose of this temporary change in leadership is to ensure the continued smooth functioning of the government during the Prime Minister's medical procedure and recovery.
Netanyahu's health journey
A week earlier, Netanyahu spent a night at the same Sheba Medical Center after complaining of dizziness. A team of cardiological specialists led by Professor Amit Segev, Chief of Cardiology at Sheeba, was carefully monitoring his health.
As part of the cardiological tests, the medical team decided to use a Holter monitor to keep a close eye on Netanyahu's heart rate. This diagnostic tool is widely used to record the electrical activity of the heart and detect any irregularities.

After conducting a series of tests, including laboratory tests, Professor Segev reassured the public by saying that Netanyahu was in excellent condition. According to him, the Prime Minister has been admitted to the hospital due to dehydration.
"As a result of tests conducted, including laboratory ones, our diagnosis is that the reason for hospitalization was dehydration," Dr. Segev said in a video statement.
However, as a precaution, the medical team has decided to go ahead with the pacemaker implant.
This sequence of events paints a clear picture of the important steps taken to ensure the well-being of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. As the nation awaits the successful completion of his medical procedure, it is a reminder of the importance of maintaining the health of our leaders, as their well-being is vital for the smooth functioning of the government and the country.
