Cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Borko Djordjevic has practiced his art for 40 years and helped people all over the world improve their appearances and boost their self-esteem. He currently serves as Chairman and Director of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Mediterranean Surgery Center in Igalo, Montenegro.
Located in Southeastern Europe, Montenegro is bordered by Bosnia, Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, and Serbia. Montenegro gained its independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1878 and existed as various incarnations of Yugoslavia throughout the 20th century. In 2006, Montenegro declared complete independence. Montenegro holds membership in the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the Union for the Mediterranean, and the Central European Free Trade Agreement.
Known for having both a beautiful coastal region and a stunning mountain range, Montenegro gained popularity as a tourist spot in the 1980s, which came to a halt during the Yugoslav wars in the 1990s. It regained popularity in the 2000s: National Geographic Traveler named Montenegro among its 50 Places of a Lifetime; The New York Times ranked Montenegro’s Ulcinj South Coast among its Top 31 Places to Go in 2010; and Yahoo Travel listed Montenegro in its 10 Top Hot Spots of 2009. Today the country is considered an elite tourist destination.
There are many cultural and historic sites to visit in Montenegro, including the basilica of St. Luke, the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon in Kotor, Our Lady of the Rocks, the Savina Monastery, and many medieval monasteries. Igalo, home to the Mediterranean Surgery Center, is famous for its spas, owing much of its popularity to the 200 days of sun it receives on average and wonderful climate, as well as the wealth of vegetation and mineral water. It located right on the coast, close to the Croatian border, and boasts extensive beaches, most of which are warm and shallow.
