Many thanks to the K + 31 clinic! For more than four years, I suffered from a drop in hemoglobin to very low, critical levels. I turned to different specialists, but no one could find the reason for this. No open bleeding was found. The overwhelming number of tests done showed no abnormalities that could shed light on the cause of my condition. Everything changed when I went to the K + 31 clinic. I would like to express my gratitude to Ekaterina Viktorovna Ivanova, doctor - specialist in endoscopy. I underwent a full bowel examination using video capsule endoscopy. As a result, a formation was found in the small intestine, due to which there was a slow loss of blood. I wish you good health and success in further medical practice to all doctors who worked on solving this difficult and important task for me! Thanks to them, I have the opportunity to solve this problem! deploy...

I visited Ekaterina Viktorovna and realized that all negativ e reviews about endoscopic studies are outright nonsense !!!

Thanks to Ekaterina Viktorovna for the enteroscopy, I tortur ed the doctor with questions, but they treated me with understanding and I learned everything I wanted. The procedure was carried out under anesthesia, so I can't say anything about the procedure itself, I slept, so to speak, I think it went well, nothing hurts or bothers me in my throat or stomach. Thank you so much! deploy...

Previously, we carried out endoscopic examinations using a fibroscope, looked "with the eye", now we have video endoscopes, and the image is displayed on a monitor with magnification. The research result is higher and depends not only on the vigilance of the doctor.

Now people are more aware of their health and try to undergo diagnostics for the purpose of prevention. I believe that this is how it should be and that it is correct.

Complications are a complex topic that scares and repels patients, but nevertheless one must know about them and remember that they do happen, and it is good that they are extremely rare.

Interventions should not be persistent. Sometimes you need a pause and an assessment of the situation.

Experience gives "endoscopic" sensitivity. Intuitively, you understand when difficulties arise and you analyze: “what to do, so as not to harm ?!”.

All my patients honestly say they are afraid. I always try to find an approach that will help them calm down. Someone needs to tell the whole course of the procedure, and someone just needs to be encouraged.

Once the girl asked: "Does everyone come out of here alive?" Definitely yes.

It is important that the patient understands what is being done to him. He must be mentally prepared. With anesthesia, everything is easier, the patient wakes up when everything has already passed.

The small intestine is very beautiful. It is shiny and shines with silver when cut.

I always show this to my colleagues and sometimes to interested patients.

I think that in many patients the dislike for gastroscopy comes from childhood. Often children are given it without anesthesia, as some believe that the child will then forget everything. But in my opinion, the fear remains. I would never perform a gastroscopy on a child without anesthesia, well, only in an emergency.

The "new" technology - non-invasive video capsule endoscopy - actually began to be used back in 2001. This is a conditional innovation.

I am very interested in spiral endoscopy, thanks to it it will be possible to examine all five meters of the small intestine and very quickly!

I am one of the pioneers in the implementation of a number of technologies in the Russian Federation used for the diagnosis of the small intestine. This is my favorite organ.

Someday we will have capsules that can independently conduct research and robotic replacements for standard endoscopy techniques.

Anything can be inserted into the capsule, including biopsy forceps. But how to fix it inside and perform the intervention on purpose? That is the question.

No technology can replace the experience of a professional and find an individual approach in a clinical situation. We are all individuals.

I really love my job, studying the results, I can stay up late. And I always try to get to the bottom of the cause of the symptoms, even if they are very subtle.

Sometimes casuistic cases happen, for example, we somehow discovered a fish bone embedded in the epithelium of the stomach.

I didn't think about medicine and wanted to be an accountant, but First Med was a 10-minute walk from home, so I chose it. And you know, I have never regretted it.

When I was in residency, there were many elderly people in our department who went to bed every year for examination for the purpose of prophylaxis, and they already knew the main team of experienced doctors of the department, immediately singling out "young newcomers, students." I came to do a colonoscopy, when suddenly my patient jumped up and began to run in a circle, shouting: "I am not a guinea pig, I will not give in to the resident."

I was very upset, but it was a good example that patients are different.

Earlier, during my first years of independent work, we did laparoscopy under local anesthesia. I was on duty and sometimes I had to conduct it myself, even without a nurse. Sometimes we were forced to ask patients to help themselves during research and interventions, for example, holding an instrument or a mouthpiece. It was terrible, fortunately, now everything is different.

Before we even had to fix some of the tools ourselves. After going through this, you begin to appreciate the opportunities that modern technologies provide.

When I was just starting to be interested in endoscopy, the first thing I said was: "I want to learn endoscopy, but not to perform gastroscopy and colonoscopy." And that is what makes up a large part of my daily work now. I really wanted to do laparoscopic gynecology.

Not accepted, and I do not conduct research on my relatives, but if necessary, I would do without hesitation.

In some ways, I have already grown to the point where I know enough in a number of areas of our specialty to transfer experience and train young specialists.
