Hernioplasty – surgical treatment of inguinal hernia
" Looking for the best solution for my hernia problem, I decided on St. Catherine Hospital and soon realized that I couldn't be happier about that decision. Everything, from the application process itself to the surgery itself, went flawlessly thanks to the care, kindness and professionalism of Dr. Stefan Dimov and the entire medical team. The results after the surgery exceeded all my expectations and now I feel like a new man. Their dedication to patient care is truly outstanding and I definitely recommend St. Caherine to everyone who is looking for top-quality medical care in a pleasant and safe environment. I would also like to point out the impeccable organization and top-quality equipment in the Hospital, which gave me extra security and comfort during the entire process. I am grateful to everyone at St. Catherine for an unforgettable experience and great care."

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy – Gallbladder Removal Surgery
Every year I do an abdominal ultrasound, and when they discovered a gallstone, I didn't pay too much attention to it at first. After talking with a doctor at another health institution in Zagreb, I decided to have another consultation about this and that's how I came to Stefan Dimov, M.D., specialist in abdominal/digestive surgery. Doctor Dimov explained everything to me in detail: what is bile, what are my options, what can go wrong, the course of the operation itself, etc. After that conversation, I realized that I had nothing to wait for, but to solve it. I didn't hesitate much and immediately arranged the operation. Why did I choose to do the surgery in St. Catherine? The reasons are preoperative and postoperative. I assumed how it would all look like, but in the end, it turned out even better than I expected. The entire medical staff was more than friendly, they were always with me and asked if I needed anything, how I was feeling, told me to call them for every little thing I need... The surgical procedure passed perfectly. I had surgery on Friday morning, and I was already out on Saturday morning. With the advices of Stefan Dimov, M.D., the recovery is going great. Once again, I would like to thank everyone, all the medical staff, but I must especially praise the anesthesiologists who took care of me during the operation. Finally, my message to everyone is that health has no price, and that is why I sincerely recommend St. Catherine Specialty Hospital.

„I found out about St. Catherine Specialty Hospital through a friend. On his recommendation I decided to go for an examination and later for the surgical procedure. I can only say that the overall service is excellent, to be recommended. After the procedure itself, I felt better than expected and I was able to walk on my own on the second day. Now, after a couple of days, most of the wounds have healed. I am more than satisfied, I have nothing but words of praise for Ana Dimova, M.D., general surgery specialist and digestive surgery subspecialist, and about her extremely kind and professional approach to patient. Thanks to the entire medical team and doctor Ana Dimova.“

Inguinal hernia repair
I have been delighted with the hernia surgical procedure I underwent recently at St Catherine Hospital, Zagreb. The operating surgeon Ana Dimova, M. D., general surgery specialist and digestive surgery subspecialist, was recommended to me as an experienced specialist and indeed proved to be an excellent choice. Her english language and communication skills are excellent and I was able to fully understand all parts of the process and choices being offered. The procedure itself I understand went very well and I have made a quick recovery. I found the other associated clinical services, from reception through to pre-op preparation and post-op consultation prompt and effective. I have no hesitation, based on my personal experience, recommending Dr. Dimova and St. Catherine's Hospital.
Hemorrhoid laser surgery
„Since I started to feel big problems with hemorrhoids, I decided to solve this problem so I started asking about possible methods and recovery. After the information about a quite long recovery after the classic surgical procedure, I decided on the laser surgery method. I received a recommendation for St. Catherine Specialty Hospital and after I had watched the video interview with Ana Dimova, M.D., general surgery specialist and digestive surgery specialist, I finally decided to have an examination and surgical procedure in St. Catherine. From the first phone meeting with medical team of St. Catherine Hospital, I realized how organized, fast, professional and friendly the entire team is. This kindness left a special impression on me from the first contact. Doctor Dimova is extremely approachable, professional and always ready to communicate. As she said the course of recovery would be, that's exactly how it was. I can freely say that St. Catherine Specialty Hospital's team and Ana Dimova, M.D. brightened the rest of my life.“

Fistula Laser Surgery
I would like to praise and thank all the medical staff of St. Catherine Hospital, but mostly Ana Dimova, M.D., general surgery specialist and digestive surgery subspecialist who has been dealing with my problem which I have had since 2015. Namely, after a long hesitation and fear of the classic invasive surgery for rectovaginal fistula that occurs as a result of a more severe stage of Crohn's disease, surfing the Internet I came across the website of St. Catherine Specialty Hospital which treats fistulas with laser and stem cells. Both methods of treatment attracted me and gave me hope that I would finally, after 7 long years, get rid of the abscess. Big 'thank you' to the wonderful dr. Dimova who already at the first proctological examination freed me from the fear and trauma that has been lingering in me for 7 years. From personal experience, I can confirm that women postpone such examinations just because of discomfort and shame. I give a 5-Star rating to dr. Dimova, as well as to the entire Hospital where I have undergone fistula laser surgery and done the whole preoperative and post-operative process. The service is a world class, so much so that at one point I thought I was dreaming, because after comparing it to a month of treatment at another health institution, it feels like I live in two parallel worlds. I definitely recommend to everyone St. Catherine Specialty Hospital and wonderful dr. Ana Dimova.

Pilodinal sinus surgery - laser
St. Catherine Specialty Hospital restored my faith in the provision of health care for foreigners in Croatia. The service exceeded all my expectations and is at an enviable world level, everyone is extremely kind, professional, there are no barriers in communication in English. For example, I really can't stand needles and they make me feel uncomfortable, but the nurses were so attentive and understanding and made the situation easier for me. Dr. Dimova is very accommodating, kind, professional and gave me all the information immediately during the examination, but also during recovery after the procedure. My big wish was minimally invasive laser surgery, not the classic one that was offered to me in other polyclinics. I would really recommend St. Catherine, the entire team and especially Dr. Dimova.
