Cardiothoracic Surgery Department at YGIA Polyclinic Private Hospital
Following the successful operation of the Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory since 2011 and the completion of a large number of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, the percutaneous insertion of aortic valve was recently added to the list of interventions performed in our center. The establishment of the Cardiac Electrophysiology Study Laboratory in 2015 was a pivotal step in the completion of the spectrum of Cardiology services provided.
Recently the Cardiothoracic Surgery Department was established in collaboration with the prominent cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Evangelos Sivitanidis and his team. Dr. Sivitanidis obtained his medical degree at the highly acclaimed University RWTH of Aachen, Germany and he subsequently specialised in cardiac, thoracic and great vessel surgery.
With an accumulated experience of more than 9,000 heart, lung, and great vessels operations the team is able to perform procedures that cover the whole spectrum of Cardiothoracic Surgery.
Dr. Sivitanidis and his team with a permanent presence at YGIA Polyclinic Private Hospital are available to treat any routine or urgent case.
The department is set up with state of the art equipment and is staffed with highly trained personnel.
With the establishment of this department at Polyclinic YGIA, patients with heart, lung and great vessels disease are being offered the highest international quality and safety standards not only in Cyprus but also the wider Eastern Mediterranean.
