When arriving for a scheduled surgical procedure you should avoid planning a lot of obligations, visiting friends, going to the seaside or to a spa because each individual has different sensitivity to pain.Therefore, the course of recovery after the procedure may be of different length.

Due to that, the stay in the hospital, as well as the period of home care provided in Belgrade, may be extended.
