Why did you choose reproductive medicine?
Apart from my childhood desire to become a doctor – in decision making played as well great role that reproductive medicine is one of the most innovative fields of modern medicine that offers the only real solution for many childless couples. It is difficult to put into words the positive emotions – when creating a new life – you are a direct contributor to the process.
What do you consider to be a special area of interest in reproductive medicine?
Gynecological endocrinology – especially the sort of treatment that provides options for prolonging ovarian biological clock ticking in women, who do not produce enough or any high-quality eggs – that will definitely reduce the need for future donation programs.

I think that just half of my goals for today are reached. However, in everyday practice – each positive pregnancy test and every newborn life – can be considered as a separate victory and achievement.
