Surgeons will work in a limited capacity on Sunday in protest of the attack that seriously wounded a veteran physician, Army Radio reported. On Wednesday, 58-year-old Dr. Marius Gai, deputy head of urology at Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot, was repeatedly stabbed in the back and shoulder with a screwdriver by a 64-year-old patient. The attacker was upset that surgery he was to undergo had been rescheduled. Although the attacker fled the scene, he later gave himself up to the police. Gai was initially listed as moderately hurt but is now in serious condition - attached to a respirator and anesthetized - at Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer. Gai has also worked for many years as a community physician for Maccabi Health Services.
