5 stars for Dr. Martin Hrubý & Team - Sleeve Gastrectomy in Turnov


Dr. Hrubý had me operated on the 8th of April 2019. I arrived on Sunday noon, and stayed till Saturday. Since I live in the southern half of Germany, the trip wasn't that long for me. (About 620 km)

I was very thorough with my preoperative research. I checket on the Internet many possibilities, but I was taken with Dr.Hrubý and his YouTube Videos. I watched almost all of them, before departing to Turnov. This is because I'm a quite nosy person, and I wish to know with what and whom I'm dealing with.

I could almost always rely on my feelings, and the moment I entered the hospital building I had a good one. It felt like "a small step for me, one giant leap towards weightloss" :-) The whole stuff and the nurses were very caring and polite. Martin Hrubý is an ambitious doctor, he loves his profession and is eager to perform thoroughly. He personally takes care daily checking if you're ok. I'm happy having met an open minded and empathic surgeon, a charming man with a wonderful sense of humor. This helped me a lot to forget about some discomfort left after the surgery.
Do not be warried about pain, you will be given pain killers as much as you need, but as dr. Hrubý sais "up to a certain level" ;-)
On the 5th day I went to explore the neighborhood and do some shopping, but have heard from other patients, they're well enought to do this earlier. It takes only about 10 min. to walk to the next store, but returning back to the hospital took me about 5 min. longer ! Placing a hospital on top of a hill is pure irony :-)

I would do all of this again, actually I'm sorry haven't done this earlier. But surely you know the saying "better late than never".
To the best of my knowledge I can recommand the Turnov Hospital and dr. Hrubý to everybody who decides to take this path.

I have attached to my review some fotos: (1-2) you can see the beauty of the region. (3) cute Czech dog. (4) view outside the window of room no.10 (5) the scars are really small, and on the 18th day after surgery, the day I took this foto, they already felt very smooth. The reddened skin around the scars is not due to the band-aid of the hospital ! It's due to mine I had at home. (6) first results: after 2 month I already have lost about 12% of my initial weight.

Wish you all the best on your way to a more healthful life.

Kind regards
