Advanced Hair Clinics was named “International Hair Clinic of the Year” by the medical travel publication International Medical Travel Journal Medical Travel Awards 2016 (http://awards.imtj.com) at their annual awards ceremony.

The awards were presented on 24th May at a high profile reception in Madrid during the International Medical Travel Journal Medical Travel Summit, which brought together all the pre-eminent providers and experts in medical travel and medical tourism sectors. The Awards were generously supported by the Tourism Association of Madrid and Spaincares.

The award was given to Advanced Hair Clinics in recognition of its excellence in hair transplantation. Advanced Hair Clinics beat similar clinics from around the world to clinch the award.

“It has been a great honour for us the fact that a reputable, independent organization chose Advanced Hair Clinics among strong entries from all over the world for the award of the International Hair Clinic of the Year. This award recognizes our efforts that take place in the midst of a challenging time for the Greek entrepreneurship. We honour this award by staying faithful to our corporate ethos, aims and values: providing high quality medical services characterized by professionalism and care for our patients’ needs” underlined Dr Anastasios Vekris, plastic surgeon, Medical Director and Founder of Advanced Hair Clinics.

“The aim of our efforts was to present and promote abroad a highly popular sector as hair transplantation is, and endorse Athens as a leading and totally safe medical destination. Advanced Hair Clinics is addressed to those who are interested in exceptional services applied by an experienced and qualified medical team in advanced infrastructures that please any need. This award proves our competency.” stated Ms Aida Sarkissian, Marketing Manager of Advanced Hair Clinics after the award’s receipt. “This was a great recognition not only for our clinic but for Greece as well, as it proves the scientific experience and professionalism, as well as the great consultation and treatment means that are being applied by Greek doctors and medical stuff for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia that equally concerns men and women.” stated Ms Lili Agiant, Manager of Advanced Hair Clinics.

Chairman of the judging panel and Managing Editor of IMTJ, Keith Pollard, says the awards celebrate the best providers in the industry and aim to encourage others to strive to match them: “Medical travel is an exciting and growing global industry, with many providers delivering excellence in both medical care and customer service. The IMTJ Medical Travel Awards are the only independent awards to recognise those who are the best of the best – and hopefully will encourage others to emulate their success. The judges wanted to reward innovation and excellence, highlight best practice and celebrate those who are leading the way in the industry and delivering successful outcomes for patients. All our winners exemplify the way the medical tourism industry should be run – professional, offering exceptional patient care and providing the best possible medical outcomes. I’m already looking forward to next year’s awards in the hope that other clinics and companies will have raised their game to match or even better this year’s winners.”
