The latest up-dated practices and equipment
In medicine, a lot depends on the diagnosis: starting from laboratory instrumental research methods and to the use of high-tech methods such as MRI and CT. The capabilities of the doctor are being significantly expanded by rapid analyzes, high resolution of modern x-rays. Laparoscopy is very informative in terms of diagnosis, especially when working with teenage girls. It allows to differentiate pelvic disorders and other surgical pathology of the abdominal cavity.
“In the field of emergency surgery, the most common complaint is an appendicitis, i.e. the inflammation of appendix and cecum. Children, starting from four years old and up to eighteen years old, often suffer from appendicitis. Among the acute diseases in infants of the first year of life, there is most often observed such formidable disease as an intestinal obstruction (invagination) requiring immediate hospitalization and emergency care. We always focus parents on the fact that recovery will come sooner, the sooner the doctor begins to help a child.
Girls often suffer from ovarian cysts, apoplexy (ovarian rupture), ovarian torsion. All these diseases are quite serious, they need to be diagnosed in time, and medical care should be promptly delivered, because this is the question of the quality of life of a child in the future”
Specifics of working with patients
"Childhood! The child cannot clearly describe his condition, talk about complaints. Children need to be treated more scrupulously; they often have to be hospitalized to make it possible for a doctor to look at their condition in dynamics. A child cannot always be allowed to go home with recommendations as an adult patient. At the same time, only one of 10 hospitalized patients need surgical interventions. We write out the rest after a comprehensive examination (the child may be disturbed by the banal intestinal colic).”
“Modern parents are very progressive, so at present there are fewer neglected cases.”
“I have a very good attitude towards the school of Dr. Komarovsky: his advices are simple, clear and competent. It is necessary to conduct educational conversations with parents, and I think the most of my colleagues will agree with this”
“Children are very different - from temperament to education. With older children, of course, it is easier to work. An important role is played by the emotional factor: the child may not suffer from pain, but stress and the presence of fear are absolutely normal. But we try to find an individual approach to everyone. Good service is an important part of work of our clinic and one of the reasons, for which patients come to us with their problems.”
“Every doctor has stressful moments.”
"The main advantage of a specialist is clinical experience."
“The doctor should achieve maximum understanding with parents, explain in detail all medical aspects, starting with the methods of diagnosis and ending with disease treatment and prevention.”
“I like fishing and football. For the holidays, I prefer to be on the seaside."
