Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

We are different: we live in different countries, we speak different languages, we have different skin, eyes and hair color. Yet there is something in common, namely the diseases, methods of their treatment and the desire to be healthy. The main treatment method for most complex conditions is an operation, surgery that is universal for all physicians and countries where they practice. Its general principles have been hard won through the centuries and paid for with lots of human lives. Compliance with these general principles protects each patient from a personal tragedy.

The world is transforming: the boundaries between states, the walls between societies, the barriers between social strata are being erased. Thanks to the Internet, you can choose a physician for yourself at any point on the world map. How can one avoid mistakes?

When selecting, it is important to ensure unambiguity of principles and terms – openness, honesty and reliability. On my website, I have opened to the patients and physicians all the secrets of my soul, my professional expertise and life experience, and my main principle of life – "I'm fond of helping people."

Every physician inherits the experience of generations of surgeons, complementing it with its own. My main professional secret is that I learn not only from the successes, but also from the mistakes of the greatest surgeons of the United States, Europe and Russia for more than 25 years.

When choosing a physician, choose with your heart!

Why patients from other countries come to be treated in Russia?

You have been sick for many years and are desperate to recover?

The medical luminaries of your country have refused to help you?

You have undergone many unsuccessful operations at the main scientific schools of the world?

You were convinced that no one in the world could help you?

Send me an e-mail to I'll answer your questions and try to help!

Feedback from colleagues Professor Puchkov


Dear colleagues, I would like to share with you the experience of an internship at the Swiss University Clinic.

Having an experience of work as obstetrician-gynecologist at several clinics in Austria and Switzerland and being a supporter of laparoscopic access in operative gynecology, I decided to come to Swiss University Clinic in Moscow for an internship. There are not so many clinics in the world, where the secrets of surgical techniques can be revealed by the author of unique methods himself, a known and talented surgeon with 30 years of experience who daily performs several laparoscopic operative interventions on abdominal, pelvic and retroperitoneal organs.

I'd like to note a few features of organization of the clinic work and surgical treatment tactics.
For example, high speed and quality of the organization of consultations, planning and carrying out of examinations and treatment at the SUC: the time from the moment of the patient's arrival at the clinic to the scheduled surgery may take only a few hours! General issues of the forthcoming consultation and preoperative examination can be remotely discussed with the clinic staff, all special questions are answered by Professor K.V. Puchkov in person within two days, with account for the patient's history and data from previous examinations received from patients electronically. read more
