Conference on shock wave therapy in Kiev - ShockWave Kiev 2108
ShockWave Kiev 2018 - conference on shock wave therapy in Kiev
On September 22, 2018 in Kiev at the National Sports Complex "Olimpiyskiy" the All-Ukrainian conference on shock wave therapy ShockWave Kiev 2018 was held. This is the first such event in Ukraine dedicated to the method of treatment - shock wave therapy (SWT). In the past 10 years, this method has been developing very rapidly and has already covered almost all the main and popular areas of medicine - cardiology, surgery, traumatology, orthopedics, neurology, urology, dentistry, dermatology, and aesthetic medicine. Even conservative osteopaths have recognized and adopted shock wave therapy, which speaks of the unique properties of the sound wave and its beneficial effect on human tissue in controlled doses.
It is very symbolic and significant that the conference was held in the Hall of Champions - the largest conference hall of the NSC Olimpiyskiy. The world's top league of shock wave therapy experts has gathered:
- President of the German and Member of the Board of the International Association for Shock Wave Therapy, a practicing surgeon, founder of his own clinic in Germany, Professor Karsten Knobloch (Carsten Knobloch),
- Honored Worker of Science and Technology of Ukraine, member of the Presidium of the Board of the Ukrainian Association of Orthopedic Traumatologists, Vice President of the Ukrainian Association of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy, head of the bases of the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology of N. Shupika, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Herzen Genrikh Ivanovich.
More than 100 participants of the SWT conference from Ukraine, Russia, Germany, Switzerland, Moldova and Georgia - the Hall of Champions accommodated everyone and for one day became a center for the exchange of experience, achievements and success in the field of shock wave therapy in Ukraine.
The organizers of the ShockWave Kiev 2018 conference on shock wave therapy were:
- the company Storz Medical AG (Storz Medical, Switzerland) is the main world authority in the field of shock wave research and the manufacturer of the best equipment for shock wave therapy with a 30-year history, more than 60% of the world market for shock wave therapy belongs to Swiss quality. Storz Medical equipment is the only one in the world that combines all types of shock waves in one apparatus and the patented V-Actor biomechanical muscle stimulation (by the way, developed by Soviet scientists for the rapid recovery of the muscle tissue of astronauts after a long stay in space in a state of weightlessness).
- the company "Rekhaflex" - one of the representatives of the company Storz Medical AG in Ukraine.
medical center "Awatage" - more than 13 years ago, the founders of the center decided to introduce treatment methods that exclude the use of a scalpel, injections and medicines, as well as any side effects. During this time, MC "Awatage" has accumulated tremendous practical experience in SWT, patents have been obtained for the treatment of fractures, periodontal disease and prostatitis by the method of shock wave therapy, thousands of doctors in Ukraine are already recommending that patients treat calcified tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, delayed consolidation of fractures without surgery or injections, prostatitis and Peyronie's disease and more than 50 other diseases with shock wave therapy. Together with the Institute of Traumatology under the leadership of Professor G.I. a fundamental experimental study on the effect of sound (shock) waves on bone tissue regeneration has been carried out. The experience of the Awatage medical center is recognized in Europe - since 2015 it has been the only authorized partner of Storz Medical AG in Ukraine.
The representative of Storz Medical company Daniel Martin (Daniel Martin) presented in Ukraine a new ultra-compact device for SWT - Masterpuls MP One. Now the method of shock wave therapy and the proven Swiss quality will become more accessible to an even wider range of specialists.
Professor from Germany Karsten Knobloch made several reports on the multidisciplinary application of the shock wave therapy method - interesting facts and new protocols in traumatology, for example, Schlatter's disease in adolescents, from dermatology and surgery for the treatment of keloid scars and diabetic foot, interesting information on the use of shock wave therapy before surgical intervention and after it to significantly accelerate wound healing. Plastic surgery has received a huge helper in the method of shock wave therapy - several times reduction of scars after operations, quick elimination of edema and bruises, complete removal of fibrous formations without a single incision.
Professor Herzen G.I. made a report on the results of the fundamental research carried out on the basis of the Awatage medical center - "The influence of radial shock wave therapy on reparative osteogenesis in experiment." The study involved three state institutes - the Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics, the Institute of Microbiology and Immunology named after V.I. Mechnikov National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine and the Institute of Hematology and Transfusiology of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine. Thanks to the work carried out, the effects that a shock wave causes when exposed to cells, the mechanism of the formation of new bone tissue, have been studied. This is the first such scientific work in the world, and it was carried out in Ukraine by our Ukrainian scientists. The knowledge of Professor G.I. have already become a part of world science and are actively discussed by the world community.
Leading specialists in Ukraine in shock wave therapy are the founders of the Awatage medical center, Ph.D., associate professor of the Department of Nervous Diseases of ZSMU, neurologist of the highest category M.V. Sikorskaya. and a neurologist of the highest category Remenyuk Yu.K. made reports on the use of SWT in neurology (in particular, the treatment of tension headaches using the SWT method), traumatology, dentistry, dermatology on the treatment of nonunion of fractures, diabetic foot, trophic ulcers, aseptic bone necrosis, periodontal disease, arthrosis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
In urology, the doctor of the MC "Awatage" Dushenko V.V. shared his successful experience in the use of SWT in the treatment of calculous prostatitis, Peyronie's disease and erectile dysfunction. The experience of the Awatage Medical Center is based on many years of use of Storz Medical equipment and thousands of treated patients. Scientific reports are confirmed by X-rays, ultrasound and laboratory tests.
Participants of the ShockWave Kiev 2018 conference noted the high level of organization of the event and interesting reports that will help them in their daily practice.
