The sub-specialty of Minimally Invasive Urology provides a full range of diagnostic and treatment services for urological diseases in adults. There is special, prostatic enlargement interest in neoplastic diseases of the prostate, kidneys, ureters, bladder as well as on functional or anatomical obstruction of the uro-genital tract and other benign conditions (stones, prostatic enlargement, infertility, infections, etc). The aim of this website is to inform visitors regarding Minimally Invasive Urology. It also provides me the opportunity to interact with public and colleagues.

After working for several years in the Departments of Urology at the well known Centre Hospitalier Lyon-Sud in Lyon (Rhône – Alps / France) and King’s College Hospital in London (Great Britain), I established in the private sector and I am affiliated with private hospitals in Athens.

This decision was strongly powered by the following paramount principles:

Vision: Our community deserves to be served by the best health care in Urology; the Center of Avantgarde Minimally Invasive Urology will be the best place to be a patient, the best place to work, and the best place to practice Medicine. Our extraordinary people, our innovative clinical applications of technology, and our effective use of information systems will set us apart.

Mission: To provide health care services that excel in Caring, Quality and Innovation.

Values: To create an environment that supports and rewards:

  • Caring and Compassion.
  • Excellence.
  • Teamwork and Trust.
  • Mutual Respect and Recognition.
  • Cost Effective / Ethical Behavior.



Quality: To deliver services that result in desired outcomes and are consistent with cutting-edge professional knowledge.

The content of this website will be updated regularly in order to provide modern and evidence based medical briefing for visitors.

Sincerely,
