Hospital Košice-Šaca is a private hospital with an academic affiliation to the Medical School of the Safarik University of Košice. This is a general hospital with a strong focus on musculoskeletal medicine.

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery focuses on sports medicine and arthroscopy, foot and ankle surgery and joint replacements, with 2,500 major operations performed annually and more than 30,000 office visits. Sports medicine, with facilities for complex cardiopulmonary diagnostics, is an integral part of the department.

There is a huge tradition and ample expertise in taking care of athletes. Doctors at our institutions are currently working with various local and national Slovakian sports teams.

We actively promoted “FIFA 11+” to several local elementary schools. There is an ongoing study on concussion in athletes. Other research projects include cartilage restoration in athletes, arthritis in older athletes and tendon disorders in football players.
