Dr But holds a position as a full professor at the University of Maribor Medical School, mentoring specialists in gynecology and obstetrics. An international instructor in reconstructive and laparoscopic pelvic surgery, he is committed to addressing female incontinence issues through non-invasive methods (sling procedures) and is a co-founder of the Maribor-based association Inkont, which brings together physicians dedicated to this field.

How this doctor can help:

Dr. But has pioneered numerous diagnostic and therapeutic methods in his practice, most notably for his application of non-invasive surgical techniques under local anesthesia tailored to the patient’s health status.

In Serbia, his consultations are held at Sava Memorial Hospital bi-monthly. Patients seeking an examination, consultation, or a second opinion can prearrange their appointments with Dr. But by contacting our reception desk.

Dr. But is particularly sought after for his effective treatment of incontinence and for performing laparoscopic surgeries on the uterus and bladder. He is renowned for conducting hysterectomies laparoscopically, which traditionally would require a significant abdominal incision and an extended recovery period. His technique involves no abdominal wall scarring and only requires three small incisions in the skin.

Professional philosophy and approach to patient care:

“My approach is centered on improving patients’ quality of life through minimally invasive surgeries, utilizing laparoscopy and local anesthesia. The combination of modern technology and surgical skill provides us with the capability to perform non-invasive procedures that not only speed up recovery but also allow women to quickly resume their everyday lives. These advancements in medicine should be leveraged to enhance women’s well-being.”
