Index – Tech-Science – The knife could not be obtained this quickly in Hungary until now

Recently, Surgery Clinic No. 1 changed its name. What happened in this unit at Similoys University while the world was watching the Coronavirus?

The Üllői t Foundation takes the name of the first department of surgery and gastroenterology intervention. All this is not without precedent, as the name change has been preceded by nearly four years of work. As a result, today patients can not only receive surgical care in the clinic located in the corner of Ülli út – Szigony utca, but since one of the branches of internal medicine, gastroenterology, has undergone a wide range of developments, our patients can count on high-level care in this. the field.

What exactly is new about this for the average person?

It started there when Surgery Clinic # 1 was founded at Similwice University in 1909, so it goes back 111 years. In a short time, the house was considered one of the most modern surgical clinics in Europe. In parallel, a high school of surgery for diseases of the liver, biliary tract and pancreas was developed here among the clinics in the country, not to mention that the first liver transplant in the country took place in this building in the 1980s. In addition to the above, there are many other specialties of the digestive system (esophagus, stomach, colon, and rectum) and endocrinology on the color palette. However, in keeping with decades of tradition and school, we can be proud of Hepatobiliary, Pancreatic and Bile duct surgery from all of them with an outstanding number of evenings and international quality indicators. The major goes back several decades, with which I wanted to start something. The painting behind me shows Janus Balasa. The late doctor said that surgery and internal medicine are on a single scientific basis. Surgery should not be a separate route. The link came from the fact that, with the experience gained in diagnosing diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, the clinic chose this field in addition to surgery.

Why is it good for a patient to take this and that from you?

In the country, patients are not treated elsewhere under an umbrella, within an institute, in a complex unit, within a clinic. If someone has a gastrointestinal disease, they can get everything from a diagnosis to a complete surgery today. Let me give you an example. We also handle rectal cancer screening as part of the National Cancer Screening Program. If someone comes here and then turns out to be involved in the disease, he will get everything locally that can help him heal. The rapid establishment of a diagnosis, of peers thinking together, and the development of effective treatment are all in the best interest of the patients. In other words, the patient’s trips are shortened, so appointments and waiting lists are long, which is beneficial because time is an important factor in all serious illnesses. Finding a good specialist here is not difficult, like 65 medical colleagues: from an internist, through a gastroenterologist, through an anesthesiologist to a surgeon, form a working group, and this team can be deployed immediately.

It would be quite clear to the world that it would work this way.

I agree, but I cannot say a hospital in Hungary where the two regions go side by side. I don’t know about an institution where there will be case reports on a daily basis, surgeons and gastroenterologists may hear in a meeting, and learn about each other’s problems. The world is striving to create comprehensive centers, but this implementation is not common, as this segment was not previously allowed by the operational structure. The demand for this was born in Hungary, prof. Dr. University President Bella Merkelly supported these efforts, then we got the necessary funds for the operation, so that the recovery can take place in a truly organized clinic, with high-quality equipment, under cultured conditions.

To what extent did the change in health status in March affect the currently being renovated clinic? How many doctors have left?

The university can be proud of its loyal colleagues, as nearly 98 percent of our employees have signed their contract to continue.

Semmelweis University will undergo a paradigm shift in August. What does this mean for the patient?

For the average citizen, maybe you can get better care. The modification of the supervisor is indicated by a paradigm change, which we hope will provide greater flexibility in economic issues and decision-making. Our unspoken goal is to make Semmelweis University one of the top 100 universities in the world, which requires innovative investments, and this can be achieved through this change of paradigm.

The clinic has been working according to the new approach for only half a year. Are there any tangible results yet?

Patient shortcut path, and promptly available surgeries are great results. Another indicator of success is the drop in the number of hospital deaths. In the case of more serious interventions, the number of deaths in the hospital should remain below 3-5%, and in our case it is less than 1-2%, depending on the region. The five-year survival rate may also be excellent, but after six months of operation, we don’t have data yet on this topic.
