Vladimir Porkhanov: “Every Single Drop of Blood Is Priceless”

Vladimir Porkhanov: “Every Single Drop of Blood  Is Priceless”

Last week, the team of neurosurgeons and thoracic surgeons was awarded Perelman Prize – “For a unique surgical operation that saved the patient’s life (a thoraric operation)”.

Q.: Is it really so important that surgical operations carried out under your guidance or by you personally have been distinguished with state awards?

A.: We have received quite a number of awards. Our hospital is the only one in Russia that has got four Recognition Awards given for unique operations that saved people’s lives. We got them in 2002, 2005, 2010 and 2014. Surgeons should be ready to carry out operations of any type by virtue of their profession.

Q.: Do you keep count of the operations you have carried out?

A.: I don’t, but my students have counted around 20,000 operations. They keep slipping most complicated cases to me (smiles). But it’s ok. Sometimes I can assist them.

Q.: Why did you take up lung surgery?

A.: When I was in the 6th form, Dad took me to the hospital, where I saw a thoracic lung operation for the first time. That was the beginning. If I had seen a heart operation, I might have become a cardiac surgeon. The main thing is that the operation you are carrying out should be going very precisely, without blood losses.
