Scientific activity

I frequently give presentations on ligament injuries, damage caused by sport and overwork of the wrist and the arm at national and international forums. In my independent article, I wrote about the risks of ligament injuries and the overworked wrists of gymnasts. I am a lecturer for sports specialist candidates and I teach them about the harm caused by sports and about the injuries of the hand. At 2001 I created a CD ROM for the purpose of teaching general practitioners and doctors who work in basic health care about locomotive physical examinations; the title is „A mozgásszervek fizikális vizsgálata”. I am a consultant for presentations and tenders for residents who are interested in hand surgery.

Patient safety protocol

We consider the safety of our patients and our professionals to be of the utmost importance, therefore, in accordance with the current regulations in force, we implement several protective measures against COVID-19 in our Institute, which you can read about in detail HERE. A negative PCR test is required for oral and other body cavity examinations or interventions if the patient had a positive PCR test in the last 3 weeks prior to the test.

The high level of interest in coronavirus testing has proportionally increased the workload of our telephone customer service. In order to improve our service, we provide a dedicated telephone line for corona virus test appointments: +36 1 999-1727
At the above telephone number - on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. - our colleagues only book appointments for coronavirus testing.
