As an active athlete, I put a lot of stress on my musculoskeletal system from an early age, and at a relatively young age I started to have problems with my knee joints. I suddenly had to cut back on sports and the only way to get back into my original way of life was an operation. From the athletes around me, I heard about a private orthopaedic clinic in Bratislava. Mainly because of the recommendations from my friends, I decided to pay for a higher standard of care and I don’t regret it. The operation went very well, and 5 years on, I am grateful to the whole team at the clinic for their outstanding work.
