Learning that there is a clinic in Kurgan, where work wonders, desperate mother brought Kerim to the Urals. The doctors examined the child and found that the pathology is very heavy: in the lower leg kid did not have many bones, tibias were absent, so the foot up where they should not be: in the peroneal. The poor boy could not stand up on its feet and even crawling with difficulty.

 - In fact, we have replaced the foot kid - continues Konstantin Igorevich. - In the Russian practice is the first time, and probably in the world too, as overseas such problems are always solved only amputation.

 - While there was a treatment, I could not believe in the success and constantly asked Konstantin Igorevich: "He will go? He will walk? "- Tearfully recalls Shirin. - And the doctor each time answered, "Sure, why else would we do it?" This is a blessing that we have met these gold doctors, they have created a miracle! Give them health and happiness, God, sorry I do not speak in Russian: I would like to say a lot, I have a book written about them!

Now the little patient may already be on the legs, and even taking the first steps. It will have several stages of treatment, but the trauma orthopedic confident that everything will be fine.

 - We have the most optimistic forecasts we keep baby feet, and they will be living, warm, beautiful, and her - smiling Konstantin Novikov. - The boy is not just their will feel he can wear shoes and drive a car - as well as all.
