QUALITY

MEDICAL CONTINENCE CENTERS (MCC) IS A PROJECT WHICH BRINGS TOGETHER THE BEST SPECIALISTS ON UI TREATMENT WHO, BASED ON INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS, WILL ENSURE THAT THE PATIENT:

  • IS PROPERLY DIAGNOSED
  • GOES THROUGH SUCCESSIVE STAGES OF THERAPY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LATEST GLOBAL STANDARDS
  • MAKES USE OF UNIQUE AND INNOVATIVE METHODS OF CONSERVATIVE THERAPY, REDUCING THE RISK OF SIDE EFFECTS TO A MINIMUM
  • WILL RECEIVE MODERN SUPPORT FOR FURTHER "NAVIGATION' OF THE SYSTEM, IRRESPECTIVE OF THE FINAL OUTCOME OF THE THERAPY

COMPLEMENTARITY

Medical Continence Centers (MCC) is not in competition with hospitals. On the contrary, it is the missing element of comprehensive care which Polish patients deserve. Our model assumes the provision of constant care which consists of preparing the Patient both before a necessary visit to a hospital (e.g. delivery, surgical procedure) and specialized, urological care after they return home.
