About chosen doctor
Specialist in pediatric surgery with permanent employment at the Zagreb Children's Clinic, the popular Klaićeva. I started my education at the General Gymnasium in Čakovec, after that I finished the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Zagreb within the deadline, where I graduated in July 2009. I did my internship at the County Hospital in Čakovec, and after passing the professional exam at the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Croatia, I was employed as an Emergency Medical Service employee working in the field and in the emergency medicine clinic for 18 months. After that, I started secondary training at the department of abdominal surgery at the County Hospital in Čakovec and finally got a specialization in pediatric surgery at the Zagreb Clinic for Children's Diseases.
In the period of 7 years of work at Klaićeva, I gained a lot of experience working in emergency and general pediatric surgery clinics. My area of special interest is pediatric urology, and for this purpose I attended additional specialist education at one of the strongest pediatric urology centers at SickKids Hospital in Toronto, Canada under the mentorship of Professor Marty Koyl. I attended many other courses in endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery and pediatric urology in Croatia and abroad, and participated with numerous papers in many European and world congresses of pediatric surgery and urology.
Since September 2015, I have been the doctor of the Basketball Club Cibona, during the same period working with all age groups of KK Cibona, from seniors to younger cadets, I gained significant experience in the field of sports medicine and sports injuries.
