Orthopaedic Surgeon, Sports & Regenerative Medicine Expert, Avid Researcher
believe that focusing on just one aspect of medicine distorts our vision and hinders making a
comprehensive diagnosis, including identification of the source of the problem, not just the current condition.
Being a surgeon is not about just “cutting” people. It is about knowing when to use a scalpel and when to step down and let nature or other specialties take over.
When the treatment comes down to surgery, it is important to remember that it is all about anatomy — she is the queen that rules our hands. Perfecting skills, constantly expanding our knowledge of anatomy, and learning how to use everything current diagnostic modalities have to offer is what will, in the end, allow us to produce best outcomes for our patients.
I believe in the holistic approach. Biological therapies, incl. stem cells, psychological support, cooperation between specialists from different fields of medicine. These elements comprise a complex long-term treatment plan that leads to the patient’s optimal recovery.
My main areas of expertise, orthopaedics-wise, are the knee (mainly ACL, PCL, menisci, and patellofemoral joint), muscles and tendons, and the ankle joint with a special interest in the Achilles tendon. I believe that my greatest achievements up-to-date are the anatomical discoveries that resulted in new, anatomy-based methods of the ACL and the Achilles tendon reconstructions. These findings (the ribbon-like form of the ACL and three-bundle structure of the Achilles) are based on the years of careful anatomical research through dissections and the experience from the operating theatre.
I am continuously working on numerous projects aimed at updating the current medical knowledge and introducing new or enhanced surgical techniques and treatments.
