2. Well, he'll never be able to speak normally again

As long as he's still got speech centers in his brain, he can use assistive devices to speak. People who have had their larynxes completely removed can now speak.

He might have heard his own voice for the last time, but he'll be able to speak.

I also don't find it odd that an Israeli doc would treat him. It could be a Pakistani or even Chechen doc, teaching hospitals in big cities are mini UNs.
