My right knee is responsible for the love, respect and appreciation I feel for dr Nataša Desnica’s team. After special exercises and a fascinating therapeutic approach I feel no pain and I can normally walk. I can even dance!
My preparations and competitions have always demanded extreme psycho-physical efforts, and that is why I need at every moment to have a reliable expert team at my disposal. For more than 10 years I have been preparing for my contests on an isokinetic device monitored by dr. Desnice and her team. Beside expertise and professional approach I have always found here an agreable and friendly atmosphere.
I came to Kaliper after having operated my knee and since that moment I have been a permanent member of this top expert and merry group. They can fix you everything – arms, legs, head – and during the process you do not feel as a patient but as a friend popping in for a cup of coffee. Thanks for fixing us!
When I entered Kaliper polyclinic after the 7th operation of my left knee I was limping, arthritic, on crutches – and then I walked. I relied on myself but also on Nataša, Goran, Petar, Katarina, Šimun, Boki and the rest of the team, these top experts in the domain of physiotherapy and rehabilitation, these always kind, motivating, dedicated, patient people, not only to me but to all patients of both sexes, any age, equally to the modest ones and the important ones. Huge thanks! If you did not exist it would be necessary to invent you, but thank God you are there!
