From my initial email exchange asking about rotator cuff surgery to getting there and having the operation, the service was excellent.
Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
EuroTreatMed provides an exceptional service that is easily 5 Star, and immediately comparable to the absolute best medical care in any country across the world.
I travelled from Belfast with my father who needed shoulder surgery. Maja was extremely helpful with everything… from providing the background of the surgical team through to booking the covid tests and travel information.
My background is in the medical sector (both UK & US) so I am very familiar with the procedures and risks involved, and the various levels of service provided. Although I think it’s natural for some people to feel a little anxious about travelling for surgery, I would certainly suggest they reach out to Maja and consider the time & cost savings when comparing outcomes to srugery in the UK and the US.
Overall, the experience was fantastic. I would be very doubtful that a better service could have been provided in the UK or US, yet this was carried out both much quicker and at a fraction of the cost by EuroTreatMed.
Specifically, my fathers operation was carried out at Sanvimed by Dr Pawlak and his very professional team.
Dr Pawlak (& team) took time to chat with my father and made him feel very comfortable about the procedure. He also took time to go through the outcomes after the surgery to set realistic recovery goals and to help my father understand what (& why) various procedures were used.
Also, it would be a mistake to not specifically mention the constant care provided by the nursing team. It was really above and beyond… the actual nursing service, general advice, breakfast/lunch/dinner… all fantastic.
P.S. I didn’t take many photos, but there is a nice walk around some little lakes nearby, so while my dad recovered I was able to spend some time there.
