I have been practicing in Evangelismos Hospital in Paphos as a Specialist Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon from 2016 with a particular interest in joint replacement and trauma.
After graduating from Athens University Medical School in Greece I moved in the UK for my training as an Orthopaedic Surgeon and I have worked in several leading orthopaedic centres.
