The department's medical team works for the benefit of patients, providing them with an individual approach, psychological support and effective rehabilitation according to modern international standards. The department is headed by Dr. med. Thomas Paraschou.
Thanks to the use of advanced technologies, orthopedic diseases are diagnosed with the highest accuracy, which helps to select exactly those rehabilitation methods, which will be the most effective in a particular clinical case. In most cases, it is enough to carry out a skeletal X-ray, ultrasound scanning of various structures of the musculoskeletal system, osteodensitometry and various laboratory tests. With the reliable diagnostic data, the specialists assess the patient's health and begin to work at the development of an individual rehabilitation program, taking into account the characteristics of the disease, the severity of injury and other factors.
When starting the rehabilitation of the patient with orthopedic disease or that one who had musculoskeletal surgery, the department's doctors have three key goals – getting rid of pain syndrome, normalization of muscle functions, as well as restoration of motor function and normal walking. The basis of any rehabilitation program are physiotherapy, exercise therapy, massage, ergotherapy and hydrotherapy. The rehabilitation activities can be provided both individually and in groups. The patient is under the constant supervision of experienced doctors, who monitor the progress of treatment, and if necessary, increase or decrease the intensity of training.
During rehabilitation, it is important not only to correctly elaborate a treatment regimen, but also to surround the patient with care, show understanding and concern. The rehabilitation therapists welcome the involvement of relatives and close people in the therapeutic process. The qualified psychologists also take part in the rehabilitation. Their work helps the patient to accept the pathology and improve the motivation for recovery. In addition, the department has created excellent conditions for spending leisure time, since positive emotions and good mood motivate the patient. In their free time, the patients can swim, walk around the clinic, enjoying the beautiful nature and fresh mountain air, play table tennis, do handicrafts in a special workshop, etc.
