The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology
The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Health was founded on the 3rd of November, 2008. In January, 2021, the department was reorganized into the Department of Reproductive Health and Medical Genetics.
The Department has three clinical bases: State Establishment Republican Scientific and Practical Center «Mother and Child», Maternity Hospital №2 and Minsk Gynecology Hospital.
It is of great importance that one of the clinical bases of the department is the Republican Scientific and Practical Center "Mother and Child", since it is in this clinic that the most difficult patients are concentrated who need highly qualified and high-tech assistance, which is provided by the staff of the Republican Scientific and Practical Center and the Department of BelMAPO. Students of the PC and retraining courses note the high level of the pedagogical process at the department.
Today, one of the priorities of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Belarus is improvement of medical care rendered to mothers and their children and strengthening of reproductive health of the Belarusian population. In this respect, the main areas of activities at the department are the following ones:
The use of stem cells for the treatment and prevention of adhesions in the uterus to solve reproductive health problems.
Medical genetics makes a great contribution to the development of medicine, explaining the causes of the clinic, the polymorphism of diseases, developing new methods of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of hereditary diseases. In many areas of modern medicine, genetic research is taking an increasing place. Medicine cannot be fully preventive without genetics, since human health is always determined by the interaction of hereditary factors and environmental factors. The object of the doctor's supervision is not only the patient, but also his family. Based on the achievements of genetics, new principles of dispensary services for patients and disease prevention are being developed. The widespread introduction of methods for early diagnosis of hereditary diseases, including intrauterine (prenatal) diagnosis, effective methods of treatment and prevention of hereditary diseases will constantly contribute to a decrease in overall morbidity, mortality, and disability. All this testifies to the deep connection between the fundamental achievements of genetics and the practice of health care.
Mutual efforts of different specialists together with medical genetics can help to solve demographic problems in the country.
Department of Reproductive Health and Medical Genetics is promoting a high level of advanced medical training for obstetricians and gynecologists, therapists, pediatricians in reproductive medicine. The main task of the department’s staff is to develop effective measures to protect reproductive health, which will contribute into the birth rate increase, morbidity and mortality decrease.
