How this doctor can help:

Dealing with congenital deformities of the feet and hips can be challenging for both children and their families. Although many developmental issues may naturally resolve as a child grows, it’s essential to respond promptly and appropriately to ensure healthy development. Dr. Bukva and his team at Sava Memorial Hospital adopt a thorough approach in diagnosing and treating these conditions, leveraging the latest monitoring techniques, including clinical assessments, radiographic imaging, and ultrasound diagnostics for the lower limbs and hips.

Professional philosophy and approach to patient care:

“We recognize the stress that such challenges can place on an entire family. That’s why we’re committed to offering support and clear information to empower parents, making them feel confident and well-informed throughout their child’s treatment journey. Our aim is to help every child achieve their full developmental potential with minimal unnecessary interventions.”
