How this doctor can help:

Getting a clear diagnosis is the first and one of the most important steps in starting treatment. It’s essential for figuring out what’s wrong and deciding on the best way to address it. Pediatric radiology is unique because its patients are children, which means doctors need to be good at more than just their medical tasks. They need to be particularly skilled at talking to both children and their parents in a way that’s comforting and clear.
Dr. Stevančević brings over 35 years of experience in performing radiological procedures on children and has a track record of helping to make accurate diagnoses and monitor treatment effectively. She plays a key role in making the treatment and recovery process smoother for families.
At Sava Memorial Hospital, you can book an appointment with Dr. Stevančević for an initial consultation or to get a “second opinion.” This is an option for parents who want to explore all their options before making a decision on further treatment. You can also bring any previous scans and reports for Dr. Stevančević to review. In some cases, she may suggest new imaging with familiar equipment to ensure the best possible understanding of your child’s condition.

Professional philosophy and approach to patient care:

“In pediatrics, our relationship as doctors is often essentially with our patient’s parents. Of course, it’s important for us to communicate with the child, but it’s almost equally vital to establish a trusting relationship with the parents. Illness and hospital stays are always a significant stress for the family of a young child. Over the years, I’ve seen both parents and children struggle through these times. However, I’ve also witnessed how much it helps them to have trust in their doctor.”
