Dr. Hab. Jacek Robaszkiewicz MD

vitrectomies,

I was born on 21 July 1970 in Aleksandrów Łódzki.

After completing secondary school in Aleksandrów Łódzki in 1989, I began my studies at the Military Medical Faculty (WAM) in Łódź. I graduated in1995. After a postgraduate placement at the Ministry of Defence’s Central Clinical Hospital in Warsaw, I was employed as an assistant at the MoD Central Clinical Hospital Ophthalmology Clinic. After a few months I was seconded to the Helicopter Training Corp at Nowe Miasto nad Pilicą for half a year. After the period of delegation I recommenced my work as an assistant at the MoD Central Clinical Hospital Ophthalmology Clinic in 20012 as a senior assistant, then from 2005 as the Adjunct of the Clinic. In 2008 I was appointed Head of the Operating Theatre at the Clinic. Between 2009 and 2011 I also held the post of deputy to the Head of the Ophthalmology Clinic at the Military Medical Institute in Warsaw, Professor Andrzej Stankiewicz. In 2011, I had to leave the medical corps for health reasons and join the reserve as a lieutenant colonel.

I began to take an interest in ophthalmology as a 5th year student, when I began to take part in the work of the Student Science Club at the Ophthalmology Clinic at the Military Medical Faculty in Łódź.

As a doctor at JW wishing to realise my professional ophthalmological goals despite being seconded to the Helicopter Training Corp at Nowe Miasto nad Pilicą, I organised my work in such a way that I could continue the specialisation I had started at MoD Central Clinical Hospital Ophthalmology Clinic in Warsaw. My direct teacher was Professor Stanisław Mrzygłód, who instilled in me an interest in ophthalmological microsurgery. In 1998, after passing the first degree of specialisation with a result of “very good”, I continued my education as an assistant at the MoD Central Clinical Hospital Ophthalmology Clinic. In 2002 I passed the second degree of specialisation in ophthalmology with a result of “very good”.

My work at the Clinic and the lessons I had learned in the field of microsurgery came to fruition in my doctoral thesis, which I defended in 2004 based on dissertation “Treating pterygium by epithelial lamellar transplantation of own conjunctiva.” The promoter of the thesis was Prof. Stanisław Mrzygłód MD. The reviewers of the thesis were Prof. Roman Goś MD and Professor Andrzej Stankiewicz MD. From 2001 I played an active role in the work of the vitreoretinal surgery team, and after four years became its head. I also developed and managed the ultrasound test laboratory at the Clinic. In 2014 I received the title of associate professor at the 2nd Faculty of Medicine at Warsaw Medical University.

The topic was:

“A prospective assessment of my own method of combined surgical-pharmacological treatment of diabetic maculopathy sufferers.” 132 pages, 39 tables, 47 drawings, ISBN: 978-83-62417-03-2 published by Oftal, Warsaw 2014.

The monograph is aimed at doctors of ophthalmology involved in surgical and conservative problems of ocular complications of diabetes in the retina.

Placements, training and professional improvement

2010 – I was awarded a silver “For Service to the Defence of the Country” medal by the Minister of Defence.

Scientific activity

My scientific interests have concentrated from the start on retinal complications of diabetes. In particular, on the topic of the vitreoretinal junction and diabetic macular swelling. The results of this research have been published in both national and international periodicals.

The possibilities of applying new technologies in provisions for injuries to the visual organ with the presence of intraocular foreign bodies, including in soldiers during military missions (Afghanistan, Iraq) have also been the subject of my ophthalmological investigations published in Polish literature.

Surgical and pharmacological care of intraocular inflammation after ophthalmological operations was a challenge reflected in several national publications.

The pterygium operation which was the subject of my doctoral thesis is a modern method, developed in collaboration with Professor Stanisław Mrzygłód, which gives 100% therapeutic success with an excellent cosmetic result and, vitally, no relapse.

Later, I also engaged with the possibilities of therapy for the exudative form of AMD, and the question of the effect of circulation on the development of glaucoma. This research was also represented in both national and international publications.

Firstly at Warsaw Medical University’s CPK Ophthalmology Clinic, then at the Ophthalmology Department of the Military Hospital, whose staff formed the core of the CMPK Ophthalmology Clinic, which was founded in 1989 and where I still work to this day. I received my 2nd degree specialisation in ophthalmology in 1988.

During more than thirty years of practising medicine I have been perfecting my skills in surgical and conservative treatment, and in diagnosis of eye conditions, obliged to constantly update my knowledge as a lecturer on courses teaching postgraduate ophthalmologists organised by the CMKP Ophthalmology Clinic, and as supervisor of the doctors training at that clinic.

I was involved in the creation of the Laser Surgery Workshop for the anterior section of the eye at the CMKP Ophthalmology Clinic, and have been running it for many years.

As an operator, I have participated in modifying every ophthalmological procedure in this field.

I activated, and for over twenty years have managed, the Ultrasonograph Workshop at the CMKP Ophthalmology Clinic (currently pachymetry, USG A and B, ultrabiomicroscopy and Doppler USG) gaining experience in this field of diagnostics.

I have authored and co-authored many publications in scientific periodicals, as well as statements and posters presented at scientific symposia in Poland and abroad. The many years of experience I have acquired in clinical and outpatient work resulted in the book I published in 2014 under the tile “Ultrabiomicroscopy – application in ophthalmology.

A review of clinical cases”.
