Striving to be at the forefront of cardiology care
for Almaty Oblast, Kazakhstan

A message from Vladimir Kraisman, MD
Dr. Kraisman, Director of Nur-Avicenum Clinic
In pursuit of continuous development, the Nur-Avicenum Clinic's main objective is the introduction of modern technologies and scientific advancements in clinical practice. Of course this requires broad international cooperation with highly qualified specialists as well as improved methods of diagnosis and treatment. Our goal is the development of disease prevention and rehabilitation programs specific to cardiovascular diseases. To this end, we are seeking the exchange of information and expertise in scientific research with other clinical institutions and research scientists in projects we have already developed. By working together, we increase the possibilities and prospects in the fight against cardiovascular disease.
