I am deeply honored and pleased to see that this long-lasting relationship is officially given and academic and business prospective. Innovations such as single site urology operations, Robotic oncological and reconstructive procedures, Robotic prolapse procedures, as well as lithiasis treatment, are among the big number of specialty procedures the people of both countries can now benefit”.
Mr Nikolaos Moschos, Business Development Director, Athens Medical Group, commented: “Our objective is to establish a business collaboration in medical areas where Romania excels, between State Authorities in Romania and Athens Medical Group, so as to support Romania's effort to become a Center of Medical Tourism itself. As you already know, Athens Medical Group has been a pioneer in this field, as it is the main player in Greece who managed to reverse the trend of Greek people flying abroad to get treatment and today receives more than 40,000 international patients for primary and secondary treatment. At the same time, we want to offer medical services to all Romanian patients which are currently travelling abroad to seek treatment, due to the lack of equipment, or for other reasons, such as: complex oncology, neurosurgery and cardiology operations, radiotherapy, digital angiography, PET CT and other. These are areas where Athens Medical Group has superb results, with doctors who are among the global elite in their field of expertise”.
Mr. Vassilis Chaniotis, General Manager, Medsana Bucharest Medical Center , commented: “Truly, this is a great day for Medsana. Together with Athens Medical Group, we are not celebrating only our 20 years anniversary, but also our plans and commitment for extroversy and prosperity in the years to come”.
