Dr Tomasz Piontek is an instructor of many specialists from Russia – he teaches procedures to doctors performing arthroscopic surgeries of joints: the hip joint, the ankle joint and the knee joint. He went to Nizhny Novgorod invited by the company Smith&Nephew, as well as by prof. Lazko Fedor and dr Siergiej Oganesjan (in the picture next to dr Tomasz Piontek). In the City Hospital no. 12, the orthopaedist from Poznań performed a demonstrational arthoscopic surgery of the hip joint and the ankle joint, which were watched by twelve local doctors. On the other hand, in the Orthopaedic Hospital dr Piontek taught the arthroscopy of the hip joint, operating on two local patients.
What is interesting, patients of Novgorod’s hospital enjoy an exceptional view from the windows – they can see the Oka flowing into the Volga.
