Dr. Sretenović has a keen interest in abdominal surgeries for pediatric patients and is skilled in various minimally invasive surgical techniques for children, including laparoscopic procedures.

How this doctor can help:

Dr. Aleksandar Sretenović treats his patients with extraordinary attention and commitment, employing cutting-edge techniques and technologies to offer the most efficient and minimally invasive treatments available. Specializing in pediatric surgery, he is adept at diagnosing and managing a broad array of congenital anomalies and functional conditions in children, consistently striving to ensure his young patients enjoy swift and pain-free recoveries.

Professional philosophy and approach to patient care:

“The key to successful treatment is establishing trust with both patients and their parents. Parents are typically most concerned about how surgical procedures might impact their child’s growth and development, the expected duration of hospital stay, and the possibility of complications. Initial discussions are crucial to thoroughly outline the treatment plan and process. By offering clear and comprehensible information, we create a reassuring environment where both children and parents can relax, which is essential for a positive outcome.”
