A little bit about Dr. John

Born in the U.S. to Greek parents, who came to the 'Land of Opportunity' in order to study and achieve all they could.


He was raised to be hard working, seeking to overcome obstacles and challenges instead of shying away from them.

In high school he was a 4.0 student and successful athlete, earning honors in his studies as well as on the wrestling mat. 

He graduated Kent State University earning a Bachelors Degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology and a Minor in Chemistry.

At Case Western Reserve University he achieved his M.D. while working with top surgeons in Orthopedics from the Cleveland Clinic and Summa Health Hospitals.

In Greece he served in the Army as a Tank Commander and then as the Base Trauma Physician at the Evelpidon Military Academy. He oversaw training exercises, mine disposal operations, and the transfer and care of wounded from battlefields in Libya and Afghanistan. 

On the island of Chios he worked at Chios General Hospital as an Orthopedic and Trauma Surgeon. Due to his specialty, he was the main Trauma Transport Physician. He was responsible for transporting many patients to Chios General from surrounding islands and ships, as well as to Athens from Chios via Super Puma helicopters, C-130 Transport planes, Commercial Planes, and ferries. He was also instrumental in transporting over a dozen victims, including many fire fighters, of the Chios Fire of 2012 that burned the island for over over a week and destroyed over 16,000 acres as well as ravaged 9 villages.


Taking a break from trauma he worked in Chalkidiki as the Resort Physician for all the top 5 Star Hotels in the area, including Sunny Beach, Pomegranate, and Simantron. This is where his interest in Aesthetic Surgery began, while working alongside and assisting his friend and Dermatologist Giorgios Kazantzis.

Moving to Athens he worked at the Central Athenian Trauma (K.A.T.) Hospital, the largest trauma hospital in South - Eastern Europe. There he worked in Orthopedics and Plastic Surgery, becoming well known as an expert in both fields, using skills he learned from both of his specialties to bring the best results for his patients.

Working in several private clinics in Athens he established himself among the elite surgeons of Athens, treating many well known V.I.P.'s  livιing in Greece.

In Orthopedics his specialty is Arthroscopic Surgery of the Upper and Lower Limbs, as well as minimally invasive percutaneous internal fixation.
