Eagle Syndrome - Croatia surgeons?

Hi eveyone! I’m new to this group, but I’m here because I hope someone here or someone who knows someone can help me.
I searched all the post but I can find so little about Croatia surgeons, and all surgeons that are near me (Slovenia, Serbia…)
I’m having my issues more than 3 year. After 5 MR scans i finally did CT scan and found my right styloid is calcified and long 55 mm. Left one is 50mm but he is not giving me problems right now.
All started with a strong pain around my ear, my neck and right side of a throat. My neurologist thought it was some kind of neuralgia, i got my Pregabalin therapy and immediately felt better, but after reaching a highest dose the pain is still here. Neurosurgeon was trying to prove glossofaringeal neuralgia but after all 5 clear MR scans they finally did a CT scan and found that it is Eagle Syndrome.
I’m 27 years old, too young to drink therapy for the rest of my life so i decided that i want to do a surgery but having problems to find a ENT or head neck surgeon who has experience in this.
I’m also having trouble to find someone from Croatia who did this and who can give me some notes about doctors. If someone here can help me, i would be very grateful.

Try to contact this Polish dr:


Hi @Majs -

Using the magnifying glass search tool in the upper right of this page, I typed Slovenia into the search box & found some posts from past members who lived in Slovenia. Here are several of the posts that came up. You can search Croatia & Serbia the same way I searched Slovenia to see if there are doctors listed that we missed & didn’t put on our Doctors List. We don’t like to add names there unless we know they’ve performed successful ES surgeries but for countries where we have no doctors listed, sometimes we’ll add names that are posted here as a starting point for our members from those countries.

I hope you’re able to find doctor information on our forum that helps you get the surgery and outcome you want. I’m sorry you’re dealing w/ ES at a younger age. The good news is that you may heal faster from surgery.

We have a section about doctors who have authored research papers- some might not necessarily be practising doctors, they may just do research, but here’s a link to a paper by some Croatian authors, they all seem to be affiliated to dental and medical schools in Split:
Possible influence of styloid process length on isolated vertigo of unknown aetiology - PubMed (nih.gov)
And this one:
Giant pseudoaneurysm of the external carotid artery causing stroke: A case report - PubMed (nih.gov)
They’re affiliated to a hospital in Zagreb.
Might be worth looking into those?
