Pediatric heart surgeon Miha Weiss resigned irrevocably on Tuesday. The director of UKC Ljubljana, Marko Jug, expressed his deep disappointment, but added that he is already negotiating with surgeon Janez Vodiškar for cooperation.
Pediatric heart surgeon Miha Weiss irrevocably leaves UKC Ljubljana exactly two months after the cooperation with UKC was terminated by a Czech surgeon Roman Gebauer. At the moment, only a pediatric cardiologist from Belgrade is employed at the pediatric heart surgery program at UKC Ljubljana Igor Šehić.
Acting professional director of UKC Ljubljana Gregor Norčič, who took office in March of this year, said at a press conference that he immediately started dealing with the issue of pediatric heart surgery. He intended to revive the idea of a center for the treatment of patients with heart problems, in which Weiss himself participated intensively.
“I am personally saddened, I had the feeling that we supported each other in our ambitions to make the center as good as possible,” said the director of UKC Ljubljana Mark South. “We regret that one of its main players is leaving us in the middle of the improvement bull.Jug added that UKC Ljubljana even risked that the said center would collapse, with the aim of adapting the activities to Weiss.It is not possible to follow personal expectations,” said Jug.
