I was born in Athens and raised in Heraklion, Crete, where I finished my high school studies in the 1st Boys High School. I con- tinued my studies at the Medical School of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, from where I graduated in June 1973. In October 1976, I was appointed to the ENT clinic of Erythros Stavros Hospital under the direction of Prof. P. Nasoufis and thereafter Prof. G. Dokianakis, where I specialized in Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery. In this clinic served until 1999 (23 years) and I went through all levels of the hierarchy to the level of Deputy Director. In the summer of 1999 I was elected as Director of ENT clinic of “LAIKON” Hospital, Athens. This clinic gives full specialty in five junior doctors.
Two years later I moved to the newly established then ENT Clinic of Head and Neck Surgery of Hospital “HENRY DYNAN”, where I remained for more than six years. From July 2007 I conduct the Head and Neck clinic of “HYGEIA” Hospital. The rich and so modern technical support of that clinic enabled me -beyond conventional surgical techniques- to implement new surgical techniques. Using ray Laser (CO2, Nd-Yag) in the nasal cavity, the oropharynx, but particularly in the larynx enables us to remove even extensive tumors, so that they can prevent a big number of maimed surgery (laryngectomy, etc.) I have also applied the endoscopic sinus surgery with the help of the navigation system. The above technique allows extensive inflammatory lesion and tumor sinus treatments without the need for external access that is particularly traumatic leaving extensive scarring. The clinic also covers the entire range of ear operations. Tympanoplasties of all types, treating cholesteatoma and the most extensive and their complications. Congenital malformations (external auditory canal atresia, congenital cholesteatomas etc.) and surgical repair of otosclerosis. They are also able to use cochlear implants and im- plantable hearing aids.
Another area that our clinic is specialized in is the surgery of the skull base (acoustic neuroma, paragangliomas, trigeminal neuromas, cholesteatomas of the petrous apex, etc.)
Especially we would like to highlight the performance of our clinic to treat malignant tumors of the head and neck. With the collaboration of experts colleagues (Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgeons) for aesthetic and functional recovery of the deficits created by the resection even of the most extensive growths from one hand and the highly skilled intervention Oncologists and Radiologists from the other hand, we achieve a high percentage of treating head and cervix tumors.
In specialized activities of the clinic should be reported and surgery of the thyroid and parathyroid using intraoperative mon- itoring of the lower laryngeal nerves, as well as the management of complications of these surgeries brought before us.
Finally we should mention in surgery of the salivary glands. Particularly in cases of parotid tumors, in which we have the preparation and preservation of the facial nerve by means of specific intraoperative detection of nerve devices. Also, with the help of sophisticated and very thin endoscopes, we have the opportunity to explore the parotid pores for di- agnostic and therapeutic purposes (removal of sielo remains).
The external and Outpatient practices of the Clinic are located on the 3rd floor of the hospital.
