International patients



Our hospital was founded in 1909 as a sanatoryum for  bone - diseases  for the Austro-Hungarian Empire.  After World War I it was renovated by the American Red Cross. In 1920 it was taken over by the Italian Red Cross andafter WW II Valdoltra became part of yugoslavian healt systeme.  It turned to orthopaedics and in early 1961 was renamed Valdoltra Orthopaedic Hospital.

Today we are an orthopaedic centre equipped with modern diagnostic and therapeutic tools (Magnetic resonance, Computerised Tomography, modern operating theatres, laser arthroscopy technology).   The three renovated pavilions offer 190 patient  beds, representing rather more than 50% of Slovenia’s orthopaedic capacity.  In the specialised orthopaedic outpatients department more than 25,000 patients from all over Slovenia are seen and treated annually, while some 5,700 are hospitalised.  We carry out over 3,400 surgical operations each year (prosthesis of major joints, spinal surgery, arthroscopy and other common surgical procedures of today).  Valdoltra Orthopaedic Hospital is in constant contact with other orthopaedic centres in Slovenia and worldwide.
