Orthopedics and Traumatology

Our department of orthopedics and traumatology is dedicated to the treatment of orthopedic problems and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. Through diagnostics, conservative and surgical procedures, we provide patients with high-quality care with an emphasis on quick recovery and return to functionality.

During trauma and orthopedic examinations, various aspects of the musculoskeletal system are analyzed in order to identify injuries and degenerative changes. These examinations include a careful analysis of the anatomy, functionality and mobility of the joints, muscles and bones. In our orthopedic department, there are Fabijan Čukelj, Ph.D., Josip Knežević, Ph.D., and Bozen Pivalica.

Ultrasound of the locomotor system provides a detailed view of soft structures, joints and bones. This technique uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of internal structures, helping orthopedists and traumatologists to visualize muscles, cartilage, tendons and ligaments and make a precise diagnosis.

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and ACP (autologous conditioned plasma) techniques use the patient's own blood components, rich in growth factors, to stimulate natural regenerative processes and accelerate wound healing. The use of PRP and ACP methods is increasingly becoming a standard in the treatment of sports injuries, degenerative joint changes and other orthopedic problems.


The application of stem cells in orthopedics represents a therapeutic option based on the utilization of the regenerative potential of stem cells. This method involves taking stem cells from the patient's own tissue and then applying them to the site of injury or degenerative changes. The application of stem cells can stimulate the regeneration of cartilage, ligaments and other tissues, contributing to recovery and reducing symptoms.

The application of blockade and hyaluronic acid are therapeutic procedures aimed at reducing pain and improving joint functionality. Blockades are usually applied to the site where the pain is present, blocking the pain signal and providing temporary relief. Hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, can be applied directly to the joint to improve lubrication and reduce friction, thereby increasing mobility and comfort.

Using modern methods such as blockade applications, hyaluronic acid or other analgesic therapies, at Mediderm we work to reduce or eliminate pain and improve the quality of life of patients facing various types of pain and inflammation.
