The sportsman had a meniscal tear. The doctors of the municipal polyclinic referred Aidar Makhmetov to the Presidential Hospital for surgery.
“It’s been 25 years since I went to our hospitals. My friends recommended me the Presidential Hospital. Before that I was treated in Germany and I can say for sure that this Hospital is not inferior to foreign ones, even better equipment and food”, - said Aidar Akhmetov.
