Dr. Vladimir Shvalidze works in the Cellular Therapy Department. He is part of a team of transplantologists specializing in ophthalmic stem cell transplantation in the eyes to improve vision.

Stem vision correction is effective in the following pathologies:

  • Optic nerve atrophy
  • Nystagmus
  • Amblyopia
  • Degeneration of the retinal pigment epithelium

The diseases listed above are treated at a high quality level in the Mardaleishvili Centre. Patients note a very good and long-lasting therapeutic effect of the transplantation procedure.

Anesthesia during cell therapy is very important because correct analgesia of the organ ensures high accuracy of minimally invasive interventions in the process of stem cells being injected into the patient’s eye or spinal canal. Both zones have many nerve endings and sensory receptors. Anesthesia is the basis for a successful operation and also prevents the patient from feeling pain.

For each patient, Dr. Vladimir Shvalidze individually selects anesthesia drugs that must have the maximum effect during the intervention and be safe for the patient’s health. The doctor also specializes in resuscitation, but there is no need for it during cellular vision correction. The participation of the doctor in the surgical intervention is a guarantee of safety and successful vision restoration for the patient.
