It was just after the birth of my third grandchild when I decided I could no longer put off having a knee operation. The pain made it impossible to walk normally, go up or down stairs or properly take care of my grandchildren and my dog. A good friend recommended that I look up Clinica Orthopedica in Bratislava on the Internet. Although I would have to pay extra for the higher standard of care, I didn’t hesitate, because elsewhere I would have had to wait several months, if not years. The operation went very well; a month after the joint replacement, I was able to walk with nearly no pain. I also found the rehabilitation nurses at the clinic very helpful and I would also like to thank them for their super care.
