Dr. Dejan Jovanović is a general surgery specialist with a focus on coloproctology, the branch of medicine focused on disorders of the colon, rectum, and anus. It’s a rare specialization among surgeons, so there are only a few coloproctologists in our healthcare system, both public and private. Dr. Jovanović is a trailblazer in this field, and we’re incredibly proud to have him as our hospital’s lead proctologist.

He honed his skills at the country’s top proctology center – the First Surgical Clinic of the Clinical Center of Serbia, working closely with Professor Zoran Krivokapić, a renowned figure in Belgrade’s surgical scene. His deep understanding of coloproctological diseases and mastery of minimally invasive techniques, which are highly effective in this area, make him one of the most accomplished specialists in treating these conditions. At Sava Memorial Hospital, he utilizes advanced technologies like laser, THD, and Trilogy HAL for “incision-free surgery,” providing comfortable and efficient options, particularly for hemorrhoid removal.

How this doctor can help:

The most common issue proctologists encounter is hemorrhoids. A significant portion of the population will face hemorrhoid problems at some point, affecting both men and women equally. Despite being somewhat of a taboo topic, often overlooked or met with embarrassment, it’s crucial to know that today’s modern technology allows for effective and lasting solutions through minimally invasive surgery. More and more people are opting for this approach, resolving a long-standing issue with just a day’s hospital stay.

Dr. Jovanović emphasizes the importance of regular coloproctological check-ups, particularly colonoscopies. This procedure is key in detecting early signs of certain conditions and addressing them promptly.

Professional philosophy and approach to patient care:

“Proctological exams should be a routine part of health check-ups. It’s essential to break the taboo surrounding diseases of the colon and anus and to fight the fear of getting checked. Around the world, colleagues often participate in campaigns to encourage people not to neglect this part of the body and the symptoms it may present.
Don’t overlook symptoms like itching, discomfort, and pain in the area, chronic constipation, pressure, and nausea. There are many reasons to focus on the colon and its ends, the rectum and anus, as they can face a variety of diseases. Some are simple and easily resolved, while others require more serious treatment.
