In February, the Saby Foundation opened a new modern pediatric emergency surgery department in the city of Petropavlovsk. Three operating units have been launched here, in which the most advanced medical equipment has been installed.
In addition to construction and equipment, the training of local specialists is an obligatory point of our Emergency Children's Surgery project.
Last week, especially for Petropavlovsk doctors, we organized the arrival of the leading pediatric surgeon of the Russian Federation, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Yuri Yuryevich Sokolov. Under his leadership, complex operations were performed on laparoscopic cholecystectomy, laparoscopic elimination of varicocele. The operations went without complications. The postoperative period proceeds safely. Patients are under medical supervision. 18 patients undergoing treatment in the department were also consulted.
In addition, Dr. Sokolov read a series of lectures for Kazakh colleagues on the topic “Endovideosurgery. Operative interventions in pediatric surgery”.
In total, during the project period, in the departments opened by the Foundation, Sokolov performed 18 complex operations, assisted by local doctors; 70 doctors from Almaty, Semey, Aktau, Atyrau, Taldykorgan, Taraz, Pavlodar and Petropavlovsk took part in organized master classes. All operations were carried out at a high level, little patients received a full course of treatment and were safely discharged home. Doctors, in turn, actively apply the baggage of the theoretical and practical knowledge gained to save the lives of children in the regions of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
We thank Yury Yuryevich for the exchange of experience, valuable knowledge and effective methods, which will now be successfully used in Kazakhstan.
