Orthopaedic surgeries and spine surgery procedures

We specialise in orthopaedic surgeries (joint replacement, arthroscopy, etc.) and spine surgery procedures. We use traditional and minimally invasive methods that significantly reduce patient's stay in the hospital, and make the recovery and return to regular activities faster. We provide all-inclusive medical care, including post-operative rehabilitation.


Surgeries are performed by renowned doctors. Many of them obtained their professional experience in prestigious hospitals and clinics in Europe and the USA. The team also includes nurses, physiotherapists and support staff.
