General surgery dominates in Greece
Greek surgeons have qualifications that clearly distinguish them. Many of them have been educated, trained and have worked in the US, the UK, Germany and other countries. They constantly participate in International Congresses, as key speakers, and they have a very vivid presence in the World’s best academic journals.
Complex surgical procedures are carried out in Operating Theatres which are equipped with modern medical equipment on the cutting-edge of technology. All Emergencies are managed on a 24-hour basis, regardless of their severity level.
Surgical approach in minor surgical fields, with great enlargements and bloodlessly, as well as endoscopic techniques (laparoscopic, thoracoscopic, transurethral, transanal, etc), i.e. minimally invasive treatment, offer the least possible tissue damage, resulting in the reduction of intraoperative and postoperative complications and the best disease outcome.
Private hospitals in Greece provide personalized and complete treatment combined within a pleasant environment with high quality hotel infrastructure standards. Fully equipped ICUs efficiently treat critically ill patients who require special nursing and medical care. Their 24-hour monitoring is performed directly by the ICU staff, with continuous recording of their vital signs, bedside and centrally. They apply all the latest international protocols, as specified in international conventions and the relevant literature. The Units are staffed with fully qualified doctors and intensivists, as well as experienced and scientifically competent nurses.
