The Rehabilitation department works on the recovery treatment of patients with orthopaedic and trauma problems. Its in-hospital premises with beds for 30 patients with the ambulatory rehabilitation service forms a specialized rehabilitation centre.

The department started its work in 2010, with a priority focus on early post-surgical rehabilitation. The department has a multidisciplinary team. It includes highly-qualified orthopaedic surgeons, rehabilitation experts and professionals from the adjacent areas (a neurologist, a cardiologist, a therapist, and a psychologist). The rehabilitation clinic has modern and versatile equipment. Its scientists and physicians have developed author's programs for recovery after different disorders, approved by EU experts in physical rehabilitation. The clinic carries out personalized pre-surgical preparation and recovery after injuries, amputations of extremities, surgical interventions, elimination of pain syndromes, prophylactic and treatment of locomotion system disorders (spine, joints).

Moreover, today's rehabilitation system works according to the scheme: ambulatory (polyclinic) – hospitalization – therapeutic resort, the most effective among the existing ones.

Since 2018, the department has opened the second (large) gym for therapeutic gymnastics for individual and group sessions and ergotherapy. The hall has modern equipment to satisfy the needs of many functions to recover.

The department has initiated and provides methodic support to advance training courses for orthopaedic and trauma surgeons and interns, hosts meetings of these specialists.

Core focuses and therapeutic methods:

  • development of individual programs for the recovery treatment;
  • physical therapy (therapeutic exercises, individual and in groups);
  • mechanical therapy (machines for constant joint motions development);
  • physiotherapy (ultrasound, phonophoresis, UHF, laser therapy, shockwave therapy, magnetic therapy, different types of miostimulation, amplipulse therapy, darsonvalization, traction therapy);
  • balneotherapy (galvanic baths, whirlpool baths, hydromassage);
  • manual therapy and reflex therapy (the clinic’s physicians mastered the most modern therapeutic techniques).

The department also has a pain-relieving centre carrying out different and successful mini-invasive manipulations (epidural injections, radiofrequency neuro ablation of spine and large joints, epidural adhesiolysis, cold plasma nucleoplastics).

Conditions of the clinic enable the successful implementation of regenerative medicine for more effective treatment and prevention of the locomotion system's disorders (PRP, injections of collagen, SVF therapy, Lipogems, mesenchymal stem cells).
