Ответственный за направление "Артрология"

врач-артролог, к.м.н. Жиляков Андрей Викторович

In 2012, specialized consultations held by an arthrologist, a specialist in joint diseases, were organized at the outpatient department. Their main task is to make a differential diagnosis between diseases of the joints and arthropathy conditions or diseases of other organs and systems manifested by pain in the joints, often the only symptom of general pathologies such as kidney and endocrine system diseases, or even malignant tumors.

The predominant pathology of the joint is osteoarthritis which may be a consequence of an injury or the result of an age-related degeneration of the cartilage that covers the joint. Joint diseases frequently develop in conjunction with soft tissue lesions surrounding the joint (muscles, ligaments, tendons, etc.). The level of pain due to the lesions of these structures may even exceed the joint pain and may require a revision of the diagnosis and treatment.

To understand this complex problem without laboratory and instrumental support is difficult for even the most experienced specialist. Moreover, to organize a full complex treatment is impossible in small clinics or unspecialized hospitals. Based on the above, our Centre has developed a special protocol of conservative treatment and rehabilitation for patients with diseases or consequences of injuries of the musculoskeletal system. We were able to acquire not only an arsenal of physical therapy and rehabilitation equipment but also to gather like-minded people whose main task is to restore the health of the population.
