It covers one quarter of Budapest (district IX, XIX, XX, XXI, XXII and XXIII) and the southern agglomeration of the Hungarian capital with 700 thousand inhabitants. Our mission is to treat all types of injuries, which means that the focus is on emergency cases. The second important activity of the department is to cure post-traumatic disabilities and the wide scale of musculo- skeletal system diseases. In addition to the ordinary trauma/orthopaedic section the
  4. 4. department has an intensive care unit, a neurosurgery unit, a hand surgery unit, one unit for septic cases and radiology. There is an independent ambulatory department for patient who need follow-up. My title is “főorvos” (it is identical with “consultant” in the UK system). According to the Hungarian system it is the second position under the chief of the unit, which means that has to be able to substitute him/her if it is necessary. In our department the trauma team consists of nine doctors plus the “főorvos” who reports to the chief of the unit. I got my M.D. degree in September 1994. Since then I have been working in the South- Budapest Trauma Centre (In the past the Trauma Centre was part of the Weiss Manfréd Hospital but it was merged in St. István Hospital in 1999). My role is to treat all types of acute injuries. As the leader or vice-leader of the trauma team, I often coordinate all the activities within the department. Beside dealing with emergencies, I often perform operations on the acutely injured musculo-skeletal system, abdomen and thorax. According to my qualification, my profession is to operate the seriously injured hands. Beside the acute trauma care my second important activity is hand surgery. I perform operations on post-traumatic hand disabilities and other chronic hand diseases (e.g. tunnel syndromes, Dupuytren’s disease, tumours etc.) as well. Although my main post is in the the hospital, I have been working at a one day surgery department once a week for two years. I have hand ambulance there, where I examine and in case of necessity and/or possibility operate patients with various hand diseases. I perform 200-300 operations annually. According to the above mentioned the great majority of them are hand surgery (osteosyntheses of fractures, reconstruction of tendon lacerations, articular-ligamental injuries and the injuries of nerves and vessels using micro surgical techniques). I’m an experienced user of AO methods and other osteosyntheses (e.g. pinning, DC-plate and other plates, intramedullary nailing, DCS, fixateurs). In the focus of my interest is the seriously injured hand and the hand infections. I am also interested in the management of the polytraumatised patient.

The first was in Soria, Spain, where I worked in an internal medicine ward six weeks long. The second was in Malmö, Sweden. I spent six weeks in the Departement of Virology (University of Lund). I studied the identification and differentiation of HPV viruses there. Thanks to this it was very easy to create the scientific study, which is indispensable requirement of the medical degree. Future plans for clinical work Because of my qualification and interest, in favourable circumstances I would like to work in the field of traumatology and hand surgery as well. In spite of this, if it’s necessary I’m disposed to choose between them. Accordingly the above mentioned, I have more experiences in the “trauma side” of the surgery of the musculosceletal system. That’s why I’m ready to improve my knowledge in orthopaedic surgery. I will be able to start work at the and of this summer. In case of bilateral satisfaction (both of the employer and me) I’ going to live and work at the selected employer for years. Interests and hobbies I am not an “all time doctor”, on the contrary I have got a wide sphere of interest. I am keen on sports: I usually go to work by bicycle, play squash and/or badminton two-three times a week. In holidays we make longer tours by bike in Hungary and abroad as well. I am a fanatic book reader, I prefer historical, geographical books and science fiction. The family is very important for me, I feel myself most comfortably with my wife and our sons. Family
  7. 7. My wife is a medical doctor (ophthalmologist) too, and her plans are equal as mines.We have got two boys, aged 14 and 16. We imagine our future together. It would be great for our children to attend to an english speaking school. Computer skills I am advanced user of Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point and the internet.
