" 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."
The patient underwent hernioplasty (surgical treatment of an inguinal hernia). The procedure was performed by Stefan Dimov, M.D., specialist in abdominal/digestive 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.
