Dr. ZSOLT TIDRENCZEL
Obstetrician-gynecologist specialist, Head of the Laboratory of Ultrasound at the Obstetric Department of HONVÉD Hospital
I graduated from the Faculty of Medicine of Semmelweis University in 1999. I started my obstetrics- gynecology internship at the I.st Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of Semmelweis University Budapest, then in 2000-2001 I learned as a resident doctor and worked with foreign fellows at the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of Honjo Teaching Hospital of Akita University, Japan.
Since 2001 the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of MÁV Hospital has been my workplace. The hospital was renamed as Public Health Center (ÁEK), then later Honvéd Hospital (MH-EK), when the transformation of the hospital started in 2007.
I qualified as an obstetrics and gynecology specialist in February, 2005. In parellel with this activity, since 2004 I have been doing my PhD studies at the Institute of Human Morphology and Developmental Biology of Semmelweis University.
My research area is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCO) and the hormonal regulation of the hypophysis.
At present, I am doing my clinical genetics training at the Faculty of Medicine of Semmelweis University. Expected date of obtaining my genetical qualification will be in 2014, when I specialize as a genetist.
Area of interest, main activity
Currently, I am the Head of the Laboratory of Ultrasound and Genetics at the Department of Obstetrics ofHonvéd Hospital. I have an expert level ultrasound licence, entitling me to carry out not only a full range of genetical tests and ultrasound, but also ultrasound-guided interventions (e.g. genetical amniocentesis – GAC, Chorion Villus Sampling – CVS). My qualifications are accredited by the London-based Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF), which is one of the best-known genetical and ultrasound diagnostic institutions in the world. The method, developed by this institute is the most effective one in screening Down-syndrome.
I have a stable private practice of obstetrics and gynecology. For years, many pregnant women have trusting me with monitoring and following up on their pregnancies. The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of our hospital allows me to deal with problematic and pathological pregnancies as well. We can also treat neonates born even at the 24th week of the pregnancy.
Laparoscopic and hysteroscopic operations for patients with infertility and other gynecological problems are performed by me on a regular basis.
I am fluent in English and have a basic knowledge of German and Japanese.
