"The quality of human life depends on the harmony and balance between his health, his psyche, and his social interactions. Medicine, in various ways, contributes to precisely this harmony of life qualities. Through a series of targeted and careful interventions, both aesthetic and functional, an excellent result is achieved that satisfies all three of these conditions."
