“Miss Stana Bojanic is absolutely amazing in very way. She explained the problem and treatment options so clearly, I have never felt so confident in any doctor before! The surgery went perfectly and so did the after care, she phoned me multiple times during my rehab, and answered every question and more. She has given me my life back.“

    I have been fortunate enough to receive treatment from Miss Bojanic on several occasions. She has consistently been warm, empathic and understanding and consistently offered helpful advice concerning treatment options that was based on clear, scientific evidence. The complex operation she recommended was performed by her with great skill and the follow-up care I received was second to none. Based on my experience of her expertise, I would not hesitate to recommend her without reservation!

    Having had an ACD (anterior cervical discectomy) C6/7 disc prolapse in 2012 I was somewhat apprehensive about taking the decision to have elective surgery for the second time in 2020 for C5/6 disc prolapse. During my initial consultation & MRI review in 2020, I found Miss Stana Bojanić to be highly knowledgable, informative and very articulate about all the risks & benefits of having another operation. I considered the previous discussion & decided to proceed with surgery. The operation was a complete success and very happy to say that I am free from pain. I have even been able to return to light running which I never thought would be possible. I would like say a Big "Thank You" to Stana and all her medical team.

    At all times Miss Bojanic was very clear in her explanations both of the benefits and risks as I underwent treatment from the initial consultation, through a nerve root block procedure and, ultimately, the surgery including follow-up. I have absolutely no complaints at all hence my 5-star rating in all the categories.

    I found Miss Bojanic to be very helpful, very clear with her explanations and very accurate with her diagnosis. I had hip replacement surgery 11 weeks ago following much discussion whether it was hip or back, she was spot on. I will contact her again regarding some lower back issues. Regards

    Explanation

    Patient seen for:
    Before Stana performed my disctectomy and fusion, I was told by a neurosurgeon friend that if he ever needed to undergo the procedure in question, he would want Stana to be the person to carry it out. Now I see why. Stana was calm, considered and kind and I always felt that I was in very safe hands. Surgery which borders your spinal column isn't something which should be taken lightly, but Stana explained everything with great care, explained all the risks, answered all my questions patiently, and never made me feel rushed in making any decisions. I was comfortable asking Stana further questions about my recovery even 12 months after my operation, and she was quick to respond and provide reassurance. I would be very happy to recommend her.
