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.

Suspension of outpatient and inpatient care in non-acute cases

Dear Visitor,

Amidst the current epidemiological situation and in line with the orders of the competent government bodies, the Buda Health Center (BEK Kft.) is suspending its outpatient and inpatient care in non-acute cases with immediate effect.      

We will continuously keep our contractual partners posted about how the logistics of the services evolve through the competent experts and those responsible for organising our healthcare provision.      

As far as ongoing treatments are concerned, our dispatchers will continuously keep patients posted following the guidance of their respective doctors. Should you have any questions, we recommend contacting your doctor via email through the institute’s email address.      

This measure will change based on central orders upon the alleviation of the epidemic.
