Special convenience for surgical treatment is that at the Institute there is the ward for rehabilitation, so the patient can get a complete service, from diagnostics through qualitative and complete before surgery preparation, to well-preformed surgery treatment and rehabilitation, and all that at the same place.

As a part of the department for orthopedic surgery, there is a stationary ward for the pain therapy, as well as the cabinet for the therapy of the chronic benign pain.

Patients who suffer from chronic benign pain, who because of severe and long-lasting pain suffer severe pain and cannot perform essential life activities, are under the pain therapy; In that case, pain is no longer considered only as a symptom of some disease, but it becomes disease itself. Methods for pain overcome are also improving. For persistent and chronic pain, treatment only with medicines often is not the best solution, so at the Institute, total in fact multy-disciplinary approach is applied, which beside medicines, therapy local anesthesia also means active participation of patients in the treatment through physical exercise, relaxing techniques and change of behavior, in fact change in the regime of life which can contribute to pain reduction without serious side effects.
