A patient with hemophilia was for the first time operated in Kyrgyzstan. The press center of the Ministry of Health said.

The surgery on replacing the right hip lasted two and a half hours. Everything went well, and the patient feels good.

«Our first success was due to specialists from the National Medical Research Center of Hematology of Russia, Professors Vladimir Zorenko, Tatyana Polyanskaya and the Twinning Programme, carried out by the World Federation of Hemophilia to support and help patients with this disease,» said Ernis Tilekov, Director of the National Center of Oncology and Hematology.

«It was a master class by Russian traumatologists with rich experience in assistance to patients with hemophilia with the participation of an academician Sabyrbek Dzhumabekov. Moreover, Russian colleagues gave us an expensive blood coagulation factor VIII concentrate in the amount of 400,000 doses, without which a patient with hemophilia cannot even be pulled a tooth,» he added.

During the visit, the Russians have already consulted 15 adult patients, in the remaining days they will examine and consult other 15 children.

In total, about 370 hemophilia patients were registered in Kyrgyzstan; approximately 127 of them are children under 16.
