Health Center MDM is a unique place located in the center of Warsaw. This part of the capital city at the time of post-war reconstruction was named Marszałkowska Housing District, in short MDM (the acronym comes from the original Polish name).
Our clinic is a site where patients meet with the experience and kindness of physicians. Our medical team consists of specialists with many years of experience accumulated in outpatient clinics and hospital departments. This the place where the doctors have at their hand modern equipment and a wide panel of diagnostic and laboratory tests.
We offer you and your children diagnostics and treatment of the diseases in multiple branches of medicine.
Here are our main service areas:
. We offer our patients full diagnostic support beginning from a broad panel of laboratory and histopathologic lab tests including hydrogen breath tests (HBT) to discover intolerance of sugars (lactose, fructose, saccharose). We perform also among the others 24-hour pH-metry of the esophagus to discover Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), anorectal manometry, and calprotectin stool levels assessment. Finally, we can propose to our patients a wide span of endoscopic examinations (gastroscopy, colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, and rectoscopy) including therapeutic procedures like colon polypectomy.
Endoscopic examinations in our clinic are performed in patients of any age, what distinguishes us from most of the established sites offering gastroenterological diagnostics in Poland. We offer performance of endoscopic examination in children and adults under general anesthesia or sedation with nitrous oxide (Entonox) depending on the indications. Efficient cooperation between various medical specialists gathered under one roof enables us to provide services that require multidisciplinary analysis of diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Undoubtedly, children obesity is one of the clinical problems that require such a joint approach. Obesity is a disease featured by rapidly increasing importance because of its prevalence and negative impact on the overall somatic and psychologic wellbeing of patients. The cooperation between experienced gastroenterologist, endocrinologist, nutritionist and psychologist enables setting the optimal patient treatment and helps parents to return to the optimal eating habits and proper body weight management of their suffering child.
While talking about gastroenterological care we also offer you the possibility of biological therapy of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease). We administer monoclonal antibodies in our clinic during several hours stay. More information about diagnosing and indications for the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases in our clinic can be found in the following section Gastroenterology. (tu link)
Otolaryngology, audiology and phoniatry
These areas are also strongly represented in our clinic. Our otolaryngologists, audiologists and phoniatrists gained extensive experience during long years of working with adult and pediatric patients. The clinic is well equipped with HD video track to image ears, nose, paranasal sinuses, nasopharyngeal, and larynx (fiberoscopy and otoscopy) what strongly supports setting the accurate diagnosis.
We believe that in contemporary otolaryngology endoscopic diagnostics belong to the routine examination and this is why we do not charge it. The cost of endoscopic examination never inflates consultation fee in our clinic.
In our center, you can also perform hearing tests and choose one of the hearing aids that are reimbursed by National Health Fund (NFZ). Please see the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that we offer in otolaryngology, audiology and phoniatry in the following sections: Otolaryngology (ENT) and Pediatric Otolaryngology (ENT).
Diagnosing recurrent infections in children
The consulting pediatricians and clinical immunologist can help guide the diagnosis and treatment of children with recurrent infections.
Quite often, the involvement of many specialists such as allergist, pulmonologist, otolaryngologist, gastroenterologist or nephrologist is necessary to set the accurate diagnosis and establish proper therapeutic process. Our clinic enables and promotes joint efforts of all mentioned above specialists.
The core team of MDM Health Center doctors consists of specialists, who spent nearly twenty years of their professional career managing numerous clinical trials. Their experience covers broad spectrum of trial related activities. This team, in addition to practical skills of conducting clinical trials, demonstrates a thorough knowledge of the methodology of clinical research and relevant international regulations, that define roles and responsibilities of the Principal Investigator and engaged team of professionals (co-investigators, clinical coordinators, study nurses, etc.)
At our site, we conduct clinical research in the following indications:
- Diseases of the liver and biliary tract
- Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
- Celiac disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis (ulcerative colitis)
- Constipation and others…
Treatment of venous diseases
We offer a multidimensional treatment of venous diseases. We have successfully transplanted extensive experience of prominent vascular centers from United States to our national ground offering complete diagnosis of the lower limbs venous system. We determine the indications for venous surgery and naturally, provide operational therapy of venous diseases.
The saphenous vein ablation utilizing high-frequency radio waves is the minimally interventional procedure that we are strongly convinced about in terms of its safety and efficiency. While performing these procedures, we employ ClosureFast™ Medtronic equipment. All venous radioablation procedures are performed in the outpatient clinic and under local anesthesia (tumescent infiltration).
We do not offer to our patients methods that are already considered historical in developed countries. The saphenous vein stripping can be a good example. This is the procedure where specific steel wire probe was used. Unfortunately, this is still the only surgical method of saphenous vein ablation which cost is reimbursed by Polish National Health Fund (NFZ). Let’s do not forget that William Wayne Babcock introduced this invasive approach to the portfolio of surgical procedures in 1907 (!) and the vascular surgery has considerably changed in the following hundred years. Nowadays patients are offered modern treatment approaches, which are efficient, safe and associated only with very limited postoperative complications in comparison to their brutal prototype. The saphenous vein ablation where high frequency radio waves are utilized is one of them. Many years ago, it became popular standard in contemporary varicose veins surgery.
We invite you to read more about the most common venous diseases in adult population and the methodology of their diagnosing and treatment. Basic information is available in the section “Diagnosis and treatment of venous diseases (link).”
