I am a 32-year-old doctor, husband and father. Cheerful, open, easy to establish contacts, friendly and caring. I live in Katowice (Poland), near the city center in a small but own house. I have wife (a doctor too – pediatrician) and three lovely doughters; that they can turn the house upside down, but this is a place full of kindness and smiles, which I am happy to return to after work. We are also happy to offer accommodation and hospitality for the duration of your stay in Katowice.
I work as a doctor in a gynecological and obstetrical ward of Brothers Hospitallers of St. John of God Hospital in Katowice. It’s already five out of six years of my specialization course. That facility is the most popular maternity hospital in Katowice (over 2000 deliveries a year in our ward). That gives a great opportunity to learn about various interesting clinical cases. We take care of pregnant women from the first trimester and we provide a secure birth from 31 weeks of pregnancy.
I can not fail to mention that we are a center that organizes training in laparoscopy and minimally invasive surgery for the southern part of the country. LASH, LAVH, TVH operations are our daily routine, we also deal with urogynecology (TVT, dTOT) and all other standard procedures. We are a reference center for oncological protocols and radical surgery for reproductive organs.
Every day we carry out about 4-6 major operations, of which at least half are laparoscopic.
What about Katowice? The city are well connected with the neighboring agglomerations and other cities (like Kraków, Wrocław); it is the capital of the Silesia region, the industrial center of Poland. In addition to numerous attractions of manufacturing character, it is a place rich in culture: exhibitions, sporting events, music concerts, outdoor events. However coal is the main attribute of Silesia, fortunately there is more greenery in the area than black. I think that Katowice does not need advertising, it’s enough to google: what to do in Katowice.
I believe that it can be your wonderful time, rich in new impressions and acquired knowledge. Be my guest.
