Profile of the surgeon
Piotr Myśliwiec, M.D., Ph.D.
Surgery is my passion. I consider myself lucky, as what I do can help people. I believe that each patient deserves a European standard of treatment, therefore, I have completed numerous training courses abroad. I spent almost 3 years in the Great Britain, Canada, France, Denmark, Belgium and Germany. I specialize in laparoscopic surgeries, particularly in the surgical treatment of obesity. I am a member of the Videosurgery Sectionof Association of Polish Surgeons. I have delivered plenty of lectures on laparoscopic surgeries. I am the co-author of the book KompendiumChirurgiiLaparoskopowej (Compendium of the Laparoscopic Surgery).
