"From the very beginning of my work, I and my team were orientated towards avoiding something that we called "mass production". The principle we are guided by is to deal with only one thing – the thing we know best. I personally operate on each patient with always the same expert and well-trained team. Each new patient represents a new challenge for the achievement of a better result. My small ritual prior to each operation is imagining its perfect outcome. Sometimes it may happen that some of the patients strive to come in personal contact with me, thinking that in that way I would be more dedicated to them. It is completely unnecessary because I am always at their disposal, being their best contact. I have full confidence in my team."
