  • I prefer prevention of renal diseases: initial (prevention of occurrence), secondary (slowdown or elimination), tertiary (prevention of advancing and developing of complications).
  • Common complaints: glomerulonephritis (various clinical options), glomerulopathy, pyelonephritis, congenital urinary system malformations, hypoplasia and cystic kidney disease (including polycystic kidney disease), interstitial nephritis, hereditary nephritis, chronic kidney disease, crystalluria, arterial hypertension syndrome, urinary incontinence, neurogenic bladder, etc.
  • “Implementation of genetic screening, multidisciplinarity, etc. However, “In the last 50 years, no new therapies have been approved... The traditional methods of directing the care ... by histological classification ... may soon yield customizing therapies based on our expanding understanding of molecular targets.” [Gibson 2015: Back to the future: therapies for idiopathic nephrotic syndrome]».
  • “Unpredictability as for the disease prognosis, in many cases – disconnection of patient’s complaints, present external characteristics and laboratory data (visual erroneous compensation or, in contrast, aggravation).”
  • “My principle is “do as you would be done by”, that works also for my patients. I have weaknesses: professional perfectionism and limited operative memory.”

Tell us about your professional interests other than your specialization:

  • “Pediatric nephrology is impossible without urology, genetics, gastroenterology, microbiology, cardiology, endocrinology and other areas of medical science known today.”

Doctor's advice:

  • “Don’t be hasty in conclusions and generalization, there is a way out of every difficult situation (more than one, as a rule). Don’t compare yourself or your child with anybody: every person has his or her own way in this life (including in the illness). Never give up. Set up positive expectations and look for good signs in any circumstances. Give credence to your children, trust them, learn from them, give them advice, but don’t live instead of them.” “I support my health condition with walking.”
