History of our polyclinic
Having opened his private practice dedicated exclusively to aesthetic surgery in 1994, Siniša Glumičić, MD, was among the pioneers in this profession in Croatia. At the very beginning, he and his team decided to follow the latest global trends in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery to be able to offer and provide the highest quality service to all patients. A few years later, Dr. Glumičić’s private practice developed into a surgical POLYCLINIC registered for maxillofacial surgery, general, plastic and reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, anaesthesia and reanimatology with a DAY CARE HOSPITAL accredited by the Ministry of Health. In this way, all the potential patients are provided the highest level of comfort, safety and surgical expertise in the private practice in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery.
“In all these years we participated in many congresses and conferences in the world and in Croatia dedicated to aesthetic surgery, we visited and learned in the best world centres and institutions from internationally recognised authorities of aesthetic surgery. We have also opened the door of our institution to all well meaning colleagues and medical professionals who wanted to learn from us as we did from them. All the media who wanted it were also allowed with no reserves, and upon permission of patients, to show the real possibilities, as well as potential risks of this wonderful profession with an aim – not only to make someone younger and prettier – but to bring back their self-confidence and faith.
Throughout this period, having operated on thousands of satisfied patients and thus creating vast experience, at the end of 2006 we were, as the only institution in Croatia at the time, active participants in the “Symposium of Experts” held in Paris, intended for the education of world renowned surgeons and institutions, and dedicated to the highest quality and the most modern trends in aesthetic surgery and the so-called “State of the Art” surgical techniques and materials. Thanks to our committed work and numerous patients from Croatia and abroad, we believe to have fully earned to be included in this expert circle of aesthetic-surgical clinics in the world.
In 2009, we completed a final “Master Course” of Allergan Academy in Stockholm intended for breast surgery, as well as multiple specialist courses during the last years all over the USA intended for all the other aesthetic interventions, especially rhinoplasty and face lifting.”
Following the world trends, in 2007, Dr. Glumičić’s team was joined by one of the leading Croatian specialists in plastic and reconstructive surgery – Asst. prof. Ivo Džepina, PhD. After more than 20 years of work at the Plastic Surgery Clinic at the clinical hospital centre “REBRO” and vast experience gained throughout these years, assistant lecturer Dr. Džepina decided to commit exclusively to private practice and aesthetic surgery, giving a new dimension to an already experienced team.
This cooperation enables all patients, as necessary, to be provided team approach and team work, which places the supply quality of ”Glumičić & Džepina Medical Group” POLYCLINIC close to the highest quality institutions for aesthetic surgery in the world.
POLYCLINIC’s motto “Beauty is a natural need of every human being” speaks best of the human need and right to physical and mental health, where the feeling of satisfaction with oneself and one’s appearance makes an integral part of this process.
“We would like to thank all of our patients so far for the trust they gave us, and this trust is precisely our greatest pride and our greatest recommendation for all future patients who decide to visit us.” – Siniša Glumičić, MD
