Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction and Partial Knee Replacement

St. Catherine Specialty Hospital is known as one of the best health care institutions in Croatia. My experience so far with medical staff, physicians and service provided confirms this. I first came to the Hospital in May last year because of a problem with my right knee (pain, difficulty walking). After MRI and the first diagnosis made by prof. Igor Borić, M.D., Ph.D., Radiologist and Hospital Director, I got in touch with Željko Jeleč, M.D., Ph.D., Orthopedic Surgeon. Dr. Jeleč explained the details of the surgical procedure and the course of recovery to me in a professional and simple way. I would like to point out that dr. Jeleč is very attentive and professional, and he made the whole process in the period before and after that operation much easier with his calmness and humanity.

Knee surgery (anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and partial knee replacement) was performed in January. Thanks to the extremely friendly, approachable and professional medical staff (nurses and doctors) the five-day stay in the Hospital was very pleasant, which I consider extremely important because they made my fear and anxiety disappear quickly.

I started physical therapy and rehabilitation seven days after surgery with Jelena Kelemen, bacc. physioth. Jelena is attentive, calm, patient and professional, and she helped me a lot to start walking without crutches very soon, to return to my daily activities and to recover towards the desired goal. I would also like to praise other physiotherapists, especially Ivana Glavač, bacc. physioth. with whom I was doing physical therapy for a while.

BIG 'THANK YOU' to the medical staff of St. Catherine Specialty Hospital for everything provided!

The patient underwent the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and partial knee replacement, whereby these two, otherwise standardly separate procedures, were performed for the first time in St. Catherine during the same operation. The surgery was performed by Željko Jeleč, M.D., Ph.D., Orthopedic Surgeon.
