"You're a sick doctor, but your little patients forget the pain in the first minutes of your counseling. Does your love for your business say that our children are not respected, although health statistics tell otherwise?
– The statistics are based on the figures we have in Lithuania, in terms of a child's illness, really bigger than in Western countries. This is primarily due to the fact that our children suffer more injuries than Westerners. It may be that our children are more active, but the most important cause of trauma, I think there is a lack of injury prevention. After all, we recently had to wear a waistcoat, put on a helmet, before riding a bicycle, wearing the helmet and the protection they require on roller skates. If a kindergarten or school is not near the high street, you do not have to pass it and the injury will be less. If the water body is closed – the child will not dive. Generally, if children are cared for, they will suffer fewer injuries. Why do you wear so young children who do not walk so often? Because of insufficient care. If there is a lock on the table, the baby will not stop and will not spill hot. If parents are obliged not to leave children younger than twelve at home alone, they will not pass through the balcony, otherwise there will be no other catastrophe.
– How to preserve and strengthen the health of children?
– The main condition determining the health of our children and our way of life. Children have more time to spend on fresh air to spend more time on the phone, computer, and other smart devices, to be physically active at least an hour a day for a moderate or intensive exercise each day, paying more attention to the quality of food. Ignoring a healthy lifestyle causes not only the bone and muscle system, but also vision, respiratory disease, diabetes, overweight.
If there is a lock on the table, the baby will not stop and will not spill hot.
– heals orthopedic illnesses. Why have children?
– The causes of all and all orthopedic illnesses are still far from being investigated. It is known that some diseases, even endocrine diseases, are genetic, genetic. Some are caused by various neurological problems, contagious diseases prevail in a child or mother during pregnancy. These are the main causes of congenital or acquired orthopedic illnesses that cause disability.
– Most commonly diagnosed orthodontic disease in children is scoliosis?
– Very often, the disorders of the body are not diagnosed, not scoliosis. These are very different problems. Scoliosis is a rare disease with only 0.5% of the disease. of all children. The spinal cord is not working properly due to incorrect body holding.
– Is she damn any other child?
– It's not true. Stomach disorders are associated with age, physiological. Stents are determined at certain stages: newborns, one, two, three, and so on, as long as the bone does not mature.
Incorrect posture may be inherent when grandfather, son and nephew – all three are raised alike. This is determined by the inherited constitutional type. Stance can always be corrected by therapeutic exercise, swimming in the pool, increasing physical activity, strengthening self-control.
– What problems do you face without that?
– Common abnormal posture may result in tired muscles, spastic pain, and yapc over the years, in old age. It's important to stick to it. It also serves furniture that matches the height of the child. Still, posture is a feature.
Trainers, to get the best results, press the kids as lemons, and the load and rehabilitation regime is not appropriate.
– So this is not the biggest health problem?
"The most difficult are those patients who have survival status. The greatest risk is multiple trauma, oncological diseases, acute infections. These diseases affect the bones, joints and soft tissues. Causes can be genetic, infection can develop after trauma due to blood contamination, streptococci or other bacterial, dangerous viruses. These infectious diseases can quickly damage the bones of the joints, otherwise they are complicated.
– And now, more and more children are becoming more and more typical of adult illnesses?
– Now the category of children includes young people under the age of eighteen, so it is possible to release the joints. This usually affects professional athletes.
In the past there were two categories of patients: children and adults. Now third – athletes appear. Sports teens are already teenagers. How to treat them? This is a difficult question, a dilemma. Athletes experience stressful fatigue fractures. Tension, overload, deterioration of the child is psychologically damaging. Coaches, to get the best out of the game, press kids like lemons, and the exercise and the way of rehabilitation are not appropriate. For sports children as well as for security professionals, exercises, nutrition and health services need to be tailored. Sports children represent school, district, city, Lithuania and who represents their health?
– Sports and health are no longer synonymous?
– Medical science works miracles. And in orthopedics and traumatology of children?
– Science is always on the go, in orthopedics and in other areas. There is no special innovation in children's orthopedics, but it is our pleasure to use nails, new design panels. All this is made of a better quality metal that is less allergen and does not cause rejection. There are some techniques for repairing the hinges, vacuum systems help in faster wound healing.
University hospitals try to have everything the latest and most suitable. Treatment at Kaunas and Vilnius clinics meets western hospital standards. It may not be enough for less frequent cases, something detrimental to the inert financing system, a long-standing public procurement competition, but in general, lithuanian medicine is moving in the right direction with the most advanced countries in the world. It also shows the number of people who want to study medicine in our country because it is a high level, recognized and appreciated all over the world.
– is it estimated? Do you think the work is really appreciated to you and your colleagues?
– Job pay is another thing. Yes, this is an estimate, and that the corresponding, sought by the Lithuanian Medical Association, concluded long-term wage increase agreements, signed a branch contract. The state is committed to raising the salary of doctors, and it is important for doctors to have one-time survival and attending the conference to leave the workshop for further development. You do not have to run from one job to another. Nobody wants to go to a well trained physician. As far as work fees are concerned, I do not want to supervise doctors, but we have to focus on how it is in the world. Everywhere education and medicine are priority areas, and unqualified workers often earn more from doctors.
Are you running from one job to another?
– There is such a saying, "Do your hobby work and you will never have to work." Maybe it's not an ethical job for a doctor to call hobbies, but as long as I can, I dare say. That's how I run.
Nobody wants to go to a well trained physician. As far as work fees are concerned, I do not want to supervise doctors, but we have to focus on how it is in the world.
Do you believe that education and medicine will ever be assessed in Lithuania?
– I'm optimistic, we're crying with us. I see everything moving forward, things are getting better. See how he does not want to go back. After all, we only run from the post-Soviet society. The patient can not recover if the 50 years two to three generations are artificially protected. Our generation has done a lot of substitution of what seems necessary. It would be very desirable to believe that today's young generation, one of the others, by their own example and good works, began to infect others and change the face of the despised Lithuania. Many of my students, like my daughters, are really different, they think differently.
When you ask me how I live, I always say I'm alive. I'm actually an optimist.
– You did not think about emigrating ever?
– No. Here we have to build Lithuania. Yes, I am a patriot. Do you know what the formula of happiness is? When you want to go from work to house, and from home – to work. Work and family are two main things, the family's most important, without their support, do not win in either science or at work.
– What was your topic in scientific work?
– The hematopoietic surface cracking tactic is a new method for fixing these fists. It is safer for neurological complications.
– You wanted to become a professor?
– A bad soldier who does not want to be a general. If you go to the world of science, you do not have to sit down, naturally looking for something more, more. And when you come back, you've learned a lot, worked as a doctor, there is a desire to share that experience. While working at a university hospital, students can do all this.
– Are not you the only family doctor?
– The woman is a public health expert, and now she studies at Vytautas Magnus University. One of the daughters is a student of the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, the oldest-discovered sweet non-medical activity in the UK. By the way, my only aunt, a doctor, who might have been indirectly, but also influenced my choice as my personal example.
– Do sick and sick often speak at home?
– Efforts must be made to develop resistance to these issues when the job is completed. If you think of patients daily and everyday – it will be bad. In some Western countries, after six weeks of intense work, it is suggested to rest for a week. Find a place where you can not think about work. Not so much physical than so much psychological vacation is needed.
Did you find a place?
"Yes, in the nicest corner of Nering, Pervalka, where we try to spend time with the family all the time without all the seasons. There are other hobbies: fungi, amber, long walks on the waterfront, meeting with friends.
