Schuster under watch of special med team

A special team of eight doctors has been formed to monitor the health of Slovak President Rudolf Schuster, who believes the Slovak medical establishment let him down during his near-death from a ruptured colon in 2000.

Schuster agreed to listen to the doctors' advice, and to undergo regular tests. The doctors, most of whom are well-known specialists, will provide their services free.
