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.
The patient underwent the total knee replacement surgery. The surgery was performed by Assoc. Prof. Dinko Vidović, M.D., Ph.D., Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon.
