Frequently Asked Questions

How safe am I undergoing surgery in Cyprus?


Our clinic's reputation is in part your guarantee, plus the fact that in European Cyprus we are bound by strict codes of practice and, as a private clinic, we are not externally regulated by target seeking and cost cutting local authorities as in the UK.
Our excellent reputation is based on positive feedback from satisfied patients - we will keep you safe, rest assured.

Safe, effective, ethical and confidential.

Both on and off-line, we will respect your confidentiality under all and any circumstances. 
For your enhanced privacy, your personal data or the details of your stay with us will not be disclosed to any third party at any time without your own specific written permission.


We honour our ethical obligation to our patients in terms of full confidentiality of personal data.



Where is your clinic?


In Larnaka - fifteen minutes from the airport.  We will come and pick you up from the airport if required, drop you off at the clinic to say "Hello" and then take you to your hotel.

Who will perform my surgery?


Your surgery will be performed by your own doctor,  and his assistant if one is required.  Your doctor will stay with you throughout the procedure and undertake every detail personally until you are returned to your room post-recovery.

When I go home - will my doctor still be available to advise me if needed?


Call us with any problems and we will be happy to talk to you.  Or else email us.  Skype is fine too.

How much is all this going to cost?


This is an issue that we will settle before you get on the plane.  Occasionally unforeseen expenses may arise but these are always subject to discussion.

Can I ask a question not detailed here?



On VERY RARE OCCASIONS it may not be possible to complete a surgical procedure as planned (for example with laparascopic techniques) and it is at the surgeon's sole discretion in all cases to perform the safest and most appropriate procedure for you.
