Inpatient Department for 105 beds opened in the new medical facility of the Medicina clinic.

Moscow, July 3, 2013. The Medicina Clinic opened its Inpatient Department, which was moved from Building 1 to the new medical building and significantly expanded (from 38 to 105 beds). The new inpatient department features four “smart” operating rooms, post anesthesia care unit, and intensive care unit. One of the operating rooms is designed for performing hybrid cardiac surgeries, when the patient undergoes CABG and stenting procedure simultaneously. During surgery in the smart operating room, a video recording of the surgical field is conducted, as well as all the instrument readings, and registration of medication that is administered during surgery. The most interesting surgeries will be broadcast on the Internet, with possible distant consultation with leading foreign colleagues. All the information about the surgery is accessible to the patient. Reconstruction of the situation in the operating room may be provided with the possible local and distant viewing of all kinds of medical information that had been registered during the studied period of time. Based on the received information, it becomes possible to create fully illustrated technological maps and standards of conducting surgeries. Smart wards are equipped with remote controlled systems that operate according to the Smart Home principle. Those systems help to establish a delimited controlled access to the patient’s electronic medical records for the patient and medical personnel.

New unique hybrid surgeries are already conducted at the new Inpatient Department. The range of offered treatment is practically unlimited. The most complicated surgeries are conducted with the involvement of the best Russian and foreign surgeons. Thus, cardiac surgeries are performed by leading European cardiac surgeons headed by Professor Alberto Repossini—a world class surgeon, who was one of the first in Europe to perform minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass, and has more than 15 years experience in minimally invasive cardiac surgery.

Laparoscopic prostatectomy surgery is conducted by Dmitry Pavlov, Candidate of Medical Sciences, member of the European Association of Urology (EAU). Dr. Pavlov specializes in laparoscopic surgery for partial nephrectomy, nephrectomy, prostatectomy, percutaneous intervention during kidney stone disease (multiple stones and coral calculus) and benign prostatic hyperplasia, including laser excision of adenoma.

Besides the Medicina Clinics remarkable surgeons, complex gynecological surgeries are conducted by Lev Ashrafyanhead of the Laboratory of Combined Methods of Treating Gynecological Diseases of the Russian Scientific Center of Radiology, Doctor of Medical Science, professor, the Honored Doctor of the Russian Federation, a corresponding member of the Academy of Medical Sciences. Dr. Ashrafyan specializes in surgical treatment of oncological diseases in gynecology. A number of his publications is dedicated to methods of treatment of endometrial cancer. Maxim Vysotsky, Doctor of Medical Science, professor, obstetrician gynecologist of the highest qualification, performs surgeries here as well. Dr. Vysotsky is a member of the National Association of gynecologists-endoscopists of Russia, the Russian Society of Endoscopic Surgeons. He was educated in seven world countries, conducts practical activities in the Department of Further Education of the Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry, has an immense experience of conducting surgeries, and is the author of numerous successful methodics. Professor E. Pevzner conducts minimally invasive neurosurgeries at the premises of the Medicina Clinic.

It is impossible to list all the highly qualified surgeons who operate at the Medicina Clinics Inpatient Department, as it is impossible to describe all the accessible types of treatment. The main thing is the combination of the best professionals, the latest technologies and unsurpassed service. Maximally comfortable conditions for inpatients are created in the wards. The wards are designed according to the standards of a five-star hotel by professional designers and have little resemblance to hospital interior. For patients who prefer not to interrupt their business affairs during hospitalization, two-bedroom luxury suites are provided: the patient receives treatment in one room, and conducts meetings in another.

Building II is adjacent to Building I, which allows to combine powerful diagnostic and rehabilitation possibilities of a polyclinic with inpatient treatment.

With the Inpatient Departments move, the Clinics new building began working at full capacity, step by step increasing the volume of medical assistance rendered. The President of the Medicina Clinic, Academic of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences Grigory Roytberg emphasized: We created the high technology clinic of the 21st century. Uniting the two medical buildings into one clinical complex of more than 35,000 square meters is a big step in the right direction. Today, more than 2,000 patients per day come to the Medicina Clinic, and we provide medical assistance that correspond to the best world standards. It is not a coincidence that Medicina Clinic is the only one in Russia that corresponds to the highest world JCI standards. In order to support the highest quality of medical assistance, the number of patients will gradually increase: in the first yearby 20-25 percent, afterwardsby 10-15 percent.
