Damir Hudetz, MD PhD, consultant orthopaedic surgeon, Assistant Professor

Dr. Hudetz is specifically motivated toward improvment in the rehabilitation process of his patients. As an orthopaedic surgeon, working in a hospital and in operation rooms, he meets with patients on a daily basis and follows their recovery process from start to the end. Modern medicine has a goal of standardizing different methods used in the healing process. Rehabilitation is the longest part of the recovery and as such has great significance, but it is still very often that this process is not being overseen by doctors in its whole duration. Dr. Hudetz believes that Videoreha brings a significant improvement and inovation in the rehabilitation process and therefore greatly improves the end result of the healing process after injuries and different conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system.
