Vita Mandekić (majka Ines Mandekić)
Tonsillectomy – Tonsil Surgery

„Due to frequent inflammations (angina) that were treated with antibiotics and the daughter's PFAPA syndrome - the otorhinolaryngologist's recommendation was tonsillectomy. However, due to the long period of waiting for the surgery appointment in the public hospital and due to the fear that the appointment could be prolonged again because of a recurrence of the disease, which has already happened once before, we decided to contact St. Catherine Specialty Hospital. The very next day after the contact, a follow-up examination was scheduled with Mislav Malić, M.D., Ph.D., FEBORL-HNS, otorhinolaryngology specialist, and the tonsillectomy itself was arranged on the eighth day after the examination. Antibiotic protection was also arranged as a preventive measure before the procedure, so that the surgery would not have to be postponed due to illness. During the examination and before the surgery, the doctor and nurses provided us with all the necessary information regarding the procedure itself, the course of the surgery, and treatment and care after the procedure. The hospital staff is friendly, the nurses are very kind, cheerful and patient. The surgery itself went well, as did the postoperative recovery at home. The procedure was performed at 8 AM, and at 2 PM we were already discharged home. My daughter Vita has only a positive memory of the whole experience in the Hospital and says that all nurses (especially nurse Silvija) and doctor Malić are the best ever. As parents, we would recommend St. Catherine Specialty Hospital to everyone because of the wonderful staff and the attitude towards the patients, as well as their companions.“
