Sanvimed is a comfortable and modern private hospital. With the mission to provide the highest quality care, individual approach, and minimise Patients’ stress and inconvenience, Sanvimed is an excellent choice for Patients looking for a hip or knee prosthesis or orthopaedic procedures including knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction, shoulder surgery and more.


The most significant value for our staff is to provide the best possible medical care. Our focus is on endoprosthetic knee and hip surgeries. We are continuously improving our qualifications at many national and international congresses and conferences. We also pay special attention to minimising stress and inconveniences related to medical treatment, especially when hosting international Patients.

Taking into consideration the importance of physical therapy after the surgery, we cooperate only with the best therapists, who look after our Patients from the same, or the next day after the surgery. The hospital is equipped with an exercise room and physical therapy rooms.

Each Patients room is comfortable, quiet, and equipped with a TV and with separate bathroom.


The team consists of experienced and valued doctors, nurses, radiologists, anesthesiologists and physical therapists. Our medical team is often invited to TV programmes. Our experts talked about orthopaedic and eye conditions, as well as possible treatment procedures. They also answered the viewers’ calls.

Patients trust

Our hospital received the most valuable prize – the patient trust award: “Patient’s Laurel 2013”. It shows our patients’ gratitude and acknowledgement.

We are glad that we could participate in the Plebiscite and that our efforts to provide high-quality medical care have been noticed by our most important service receivers – Patients.


As the choice of a proper implant is vital, our surgeons will decide together with you which type of endoprosthesis will suit you most – if you are an active person, what is your bone density and more. We use only components from the best world suppliers like Smith & Nephew or Zimmer Biomet.

Total Care Package

Together with Sanvimed, we offer a Total Care Package which includes online consultation, airport pick-up, additional diagnostics and tests, surgery with the implant, anesthesiologists, all of the medications needed and 14 days of stay with physical therapy, aftercare and post-operative consultations. All rooms in the Clinic are comfortable and have their bathroom, TV and WI-FI. If you travel alone, our staff will make you feel at home, if you come with an accompanying person he/she can stay together with you in the Clinic or the nice hotel nearby. Contact us and specify your needs, doubts and expectations; we are here to help!

Through this website, I would like to thank Dr Janusz Manachiewicz and other doctors for the best care ever during my stay in SANVIMED. I was impressed by his competence, professionalism and humane treatment. Also, professional help and friendly atmosphere provided by the nurses let me forget about all this stress. Taking full responsibility, I can recommend this medical centre, especially Dr Manachiewicz who is the right person in the right place. Way to go!

We would like to thank you and the whole team for everything it was a brilliant experience from start to finish.

The staff and hospital were brilliant, professional, and very dedicated, it was a great experience, I can not praise them enough.

I would highly recommend this hospital to anyone thinking of having a hip operation.
Best wishes to you all.

Hip replacement

From start to finish, EuroTreatMed made getting mum’s hip replacement surgery in Poland very easy. We were treated with care and professionalism throughout. Nothing was too much trouble. We cannot recommend EuroTreatMed and the Sanvimed clinic enough. Five stars.

Maja, EuroTreatMed’s International Patient Coordinator, is friendly, caring and helpful.

We had heard about people going for surgery abroad but were unsure how it would work. Maja explained the process in English and assured us that mum would be in good hands and that her surgery, nursing care and physiotherapy would be performed to the highest standards using the most modern materials and techniques. Maja was with us throughout; from our first email requesting information, visiting mum at the clinic to her following up with us after mum had returned to Northern Ireland.

She made dealing with the clinic very easy. She answered our questions fully, helped with all necessary paperwork, arranged the treatment with Sanvimed (the Polish clinic) and looked after our needs throughout mum’s stay in Poland. If we needed anything for mum, Maja was on hand to assist. She arranged day trips for us, as well as dental treatment for me at short notice (the quality of which was excellent).

We were very satisfied with mum’s hospital treatment which was lead by Dr. Wojciech Pawlak M.D. PhD. His team at Sanvimed are kind, caring and professional. He performed the surgery well and visited each day to care for mum.

The nurses and physiotherapists are excellent. They cared so well for mum and saw to her every need. 24 hour care was provided by English-speaking nurses and physiotherapy sessions were provided daily by English-speaking physiotherapists. Nothing was too much trouble.

The clinic is fully equipped and all treatments are carried out on site. Mum had her own private room with an en-suite and an extra bed to allow a family member to stay with her for the duration of her stay. Three excellent meals were provided daily as well as ample tea, coffee and juice.

We got to know the staff well and they were so kind. This really put mum at ease and aided her recovery.

On mum’s discharge from clinic, she was given thorough and complete documentation, detailing her treatment and instructions for her ongoing care in Northern Ireland. The clinic provided all necessary information and receipts etc in English to facilitate reimbursement for the cost of the treatment by the NHS.

Thank you to Maja and Dr Pawlak and his team.
