About Us

event 08.01.2023.

Aksis Special Hospital was founded in 2012. Its foundation was preceded by years of work, the introduction of new treatment methods and the innovation of Polyclinics Vertebralis and Vertebris.

Aksis Special Hospital was founded by a group of professionals in the field of spine neurosurgery, orthopedics and traumatology, anesthesiology and physical medicine, led by Dr. Robert Saftić as the medical director. The goal from the very beginning was to offer something new, innovative, better and safer – minimally invasive, which would ensure a high level of patient satisfaction and reduce patient and healthcare costs.

Two separate departments operate within Aksis Special Hospital:

  • Department for Neurosurgery
  • Department for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.


Our mission is simple and consists of providing reliable information about diseases and conditions of the spine and joints, minimally invasive treatment options, providing second opinions, and finally organizing and coordinating possible surgical treatment at our hospital. Our specialties are endoscopic discectomy with annuloplasty (SED), METRx micro-endoscopic decompression, laser spine surgery (PLDD) and minimally invasive joint surgery. These methods represent a combination of a minimally invasive surgical approach with maximum effect in the treatment of degenerative and other diseases of the locomotor system.


The range of our services includes doctor-patient communication and correspondence, translation services, document digitization services, and a full spectrum of services once you opt for surgery with our neurosurgeons or orthopedic surgeons. This may include managing visas and other documentation, airport or hotel transfers, accommodation, support for family and friends staying at home, etc.
