This surgical procedure (percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty or PTCA) opens narrow or blocked arteries using a drug eluting stent (DES). The treatment package includes 7 days stay full-board at Health Resort Ustro? with rehabilitation services and a dietitian consultation. Patients receive a specialist cardiac consultation including an EKG, stress tests, laboratory examinations and echocardiography, both before and after surgery.
Varicose vein treatments are designed to relieve symptoms and improve the appearance of unsightly veins, by removing or destroying them. Varicose veins are abnormal veins that have a weakened vein wall, causing the vein to become bigger. They are noticeable on the skin, are blue and purple in color, and appear as swollen or twisted. These abnormal veins are often accompanied by spider veins, which are red capillaries that may surround the varicose veins.

The clinic was visited by a member of the MEDIGO Team
The building appears to be very recently built and modern. The location is very nice with the surrounding mountains as a backdrop. It was very pleasant to be there because the large windows allow for light to enter the clinic, and the surroundings make it a comfortable appealing place - all the best to complement the high-tech nature of the clinic.
