In 2003, when I completed my residency as an orthopaedic surgeon in NIMTS hospital, I went for one year to Cambridge, UK for a fellowship in hip surgery. Since 2004, when I returned, I started my practice, focusing mainly in hip and knee reconstructive surgery. At the beginning, I worked part-time at Hygeia Hospital and for SOS Doctors in Athens until 2008. At that time, I started working for the health care section of the Bank of Greece and at the same time as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Euroclinic Hospital.

My clinical interest in my everyday orthopaedic practice, originating from my training in Greece and abroad and longtime experience, is hip and knee reconstructive surgery, ranging from arthroscopy to revision joint replacement. During the last decade, following the global orthopaedic community’s developments, I have focused in Fast Track Surgery – Enhanced Recovery Surgery  and Minimally Invasive Surgery of these joints, being a pioneer in the field in Greece.
