Commenting on this partnership, Mr Stefanos Chandakas, Obstetrician/Gynecologist, Endoscopic Surgeon and Member of the MITERA Scientific Council, noted, “In the over 40 years it has been operating, MITERA has carried out significant research and scientific work. It has been organizing postgraduate internship programs for young doctors on minimally invasive gynecologic surgery since 2011. Paving the way yet again, MITERA is the first private hospital to join forces with the renowned Aretaieion University Hospital in Greece, as part of the modern approach it has adopted towards the training of young doctors.
