In December 2009, a branch of our center was open in the west of Ukraine, in the town of Stryi. This clinic is equipped in the same way as the central clinic is and is regularly visited by the specialists from Kyiv who may consult you and, if needed, perform a surgery. It should be also mentioned that transporting the patient after the surgery at far distances may slow the recovery down.
