SERGE DOJCINOVIC

SERGE DOJCINOVIC

In the past, healthcare was preferably administered at home, as hospitals were considered to be unsanitary places of death. Today, this reputation has been dispelled owing to the vast progress made since – but they have now become bottomless money pits.
We’re starting to see a return to home-based healthcare. This isn’t quite the case for operations yet, but we’re not too far off. An entire generation of surgeons is fascinated by the challenge presented by doing away with post-operative care in hospitals, and Serge Docjinovic is the perfect example. After training in Switzerland and Lyon, Serge settled in Fribourg, putting his heart and soul into championing the outpatient surgery approach.
