Dobrobut Medical Center strengths

“The clinic attracts with well-organized work, commitment to results, following the principles of modern evidence-based medicine without reference to time-honored, but ineffective methods of treatment.”

Trends in pediatric orthopedics and traumatology

“Performing of large-scale studies with good design for confirmation or refutation of naturally enough or hard-and-fast statements, as it was thought before.”

Specifics of working with patients

“The most important thing to communicate to parents is that they are the most important people in the child’s health. It is also important to understand that children are not little adults. A child lives through various forming stages when the things that are considered age-appropriate normal values can cause and cause parents’ concern. Unfortunately, these conditions are transformed in commercial diseases in our country. These “diseases” are actively “treated” and go away by themselves with time. That is why it is important to define if the condition of parents’ concern is a pathology or an age-appropriate normal value, and communicate it to parents.”

Doctor’s advice

“The most complicated thing is not to send a child to massage and physiotherapeutic procedure course every 3 months (in the ideal case) and put a big plus sign on the parental conscience. The most complicated, but the most important and most effective method for the majority of people is to work out with the child on a regular basis and to inculcate a habit of healthy lifestyle.”

About work

“A good doctor is the one who learns continuously. A good pediatric orthopedist is the one who treats only the state that should be treated.”
