We welcome you to this website which is a dedicated entry on the web, with the sub-specialty of Endocrine Surgery and Specialised Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery as subjects. The content of this website aims to describe, in simple words, my daily life as an Endocrine Surgeon, with patients in my Practice and in the Operating Room, their questions, anxieties, reservations, and expectations of an endocrinal surgery.

Having been trained and having gained  multi-year experience  from working in specialised Endocrine Surgery units in the United Kingdom, my I aspire  to perform surgeries with state-of-the-art and innovative techniques. Having the honour of directing the certified CENTER OF EXCELLENCE THYROID & PARATHYROID SURGERY, with well-trained colleagues, we perform thousands of thyroid and parathyroid surgeries, with specialised microsurgical equipment of cutting edge technology. We are, thus, honoured to find ourselves, continuously during the past decade, among the top choices for patients nationwide and from neighbouring countries.

We provide daily a modern, safe, with no complications, radical, practically bloodless and aesthetically perfect thyroid operation, with one-day hospitalisation, no scalpel use, no stitches, no drainage tubes, no pain, patients have the ability to speak right after regaining consciousness, immediate mobilisation, feeding on a free diet starting the same afternoon, speedy recovery and return to daily activities from the very next day after discharge.

In the core of our philosophy is the anthropocentric approach to the patient, with personalised treatment, quality of hospitalisation, personal care and comfort for the patient in a pleasant and friendly environment.

The criterion of success for this endeavour will be the opportunity to communicate between the readers of the website and the doctor, wishing the answers to your questions would help you make the right treatment choices.
