David Berishvili, cardiovascular surgeon, Doctor of Medical Science, Head of Congenital Heart Disease Department

To Patients

Dear Parents! Congenital heart disease is not a sentence. A child with a disease is a big tragedy. No one except parents can comprehend it. At such moments, the family can only think about one thing – how to save the baby? There is only one answer. You should accept reality and immediately refer to professionals in order to have a chance to help.

What do children’s doctors want? They’d rather be out of work than see suffering children. And if this is not possible, then let our and your efforts help children recover or improve their condition where cure is impossible. If the God allowed diseases to appear, that’s also him, who teached us how to deal with them. If your child has a congenital heart disease, only you, together with professional doctors, can perform a miracle. Sincerely, David Berishvili.
