Shoulder Arthroscopy - Minimally Invasive Shoulder Surgery

I have only a positive experience with St. Catherine Hospital - stress-free and very calm, which was the most important thing for me personally. The medical staff is very kind and I can say that they were always one step ahead of me, because they provided me with everything I needed, even before I asked or called them. The service is at a high level, and everything I was interested in was explained to me in detail. I really have words of praise for every employee of St. Catherine, from my operator Tadija Petrović, M.D., Ph.D., Orthopaedic and Traumatology Surgeon, through the rest of the medical staff who took care of me the whole time, all the way to the physical therapy team. Absolutely every person in St. Catherine, from the time I arrived to the time I left the hospital, treated me as a human being, not just a number or an object, which you can rarely experience anywhere else. Therefore, the most sincere recommendations for St. Catherine Specialty Hospital.

Total Knee Replacement

On the recommendation of a friend, I decided to have knee surgery at St. Catherine Specialty Hospital. Already at the first examination with Assoc. Prof. Dinko Vidović, M.D., Ph.D., Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon I gained great trust in him, so I agreed to the indicated operation without thinking. The medical staff of the Hospital is very friendly, obligingly, and above all professional, so my entire stay in St. Catherine was very pleasant. The implantation of the total knee endoprosthesis went perfectly well, and I was on my feet already on the second day with the help of the physiotherapist. Due to all of the above, I would sincerely recommend St. Catherine Specialty Hospital to any patient who needs this or a similar surgical procedure.

Scoliosis surgery

„In 2020 I was diagnosed with scoliosis, a deformation of the spine. At that time, the degree of scoliosis was such that it was necessary to be treated with an orthosis. After some time, it got worse despite orthotic treatment and on the recommendation of my orthopedist, I was referred for further consultation. Through acquaintances, my parents and I heard about Vladimir Kovač, M.D., Ph.D., as the greatest Croatian expert in the treatment of children's scoliosis and spinal deformities. We did the first examination shortly after the first contact with the doctor and he recommended the surgery. Prof. Kovač was honest and objectively explained to us what kind of surgery it was and what the risks were, which particularly impressed us. Shortly after our conversation, we decided to have surgery. Prof. Vladimir Kovač recommended treatment at the St. Catherine Specialty Hospital as one of the top institutions that can perform preoperative preparation and postoperative care, as well as the operation itself, at the highest level. We arrived at the hospital the day before the operation and stayed in the hospital suite, which was spacious and pleasant to stay in. The surgery was already on the second day and almost completely painless, and I was sitting on the second day after the surgery and on the third day I was already walking. After seven days I was discharged for home treatment. The whole experience was beyond all our expectations. All this would not have been possible without the great experience, knowledge and expertise of prof. Vladimir Kovač and his team who performed the operation flawlessly. The service itself, from the first to the last day of hospital stay, was at the highest level. We were especially impressed by the care and concern of the medical team on the 3rd floor of the St. Catherine Specilty Hospital and all the physiotherapists to whom we can only say a big thank you for everything. We would especially like to thank prof. Dr. Vladimir Kovač for his care, approach to the patient, professionalism and expertise. At the same time, all praise to the team of the St. Catherine Specilty Hospital for the extremely professional service, kindness, warm approach and smile they had at every step. We sincerely want to recommend the St. Catherine Specilty Hospital.“

Pain Management Clinic – Chronic Pain Management

My search for a chronic pain diagnosis took two years. The pain was unbearable and incurable because my diagnosis was unknown. I came to St. Catherine Hospital on the recommendation of a friend - initially at prof. Goran Mrak, M.D., Ph.D., neurosurgery specialist, and then I continued the treatment with Marin Lozić, M.D., Ph.D., specialist of anesthesiology and subspecialist of intensive care. Doctor Marin Lozić doesn't give up on an unusual diagnosis and he will do everything he can to make your life easier. I am still on that healing journey with him. Step by step, it is getting easier for me and I hope that soon all the pain will become a part of my past. I want to thank Marin Lozić, M.D., Ph.D. from the bottom of my heart for everything. I will continue to travel 1.100 kilometers every 15 days to get his help and support. Also, I would like to praise the extremely kind and helpful staff of St. Catherine.
