He became famous in 1989 after several of his sessions with patients were shown on Soviet television. Among other things, he was shown to remove the pain of two patients who remained conscious during abdominal surgery by addressing them by teleconferencing.[2] The first session was shown on October 9, 1989 on the Central Channel of the USSR.

In 1993 he was chosen to be a Deputy of the Russian Duma.
