IASO: Free Surgeries & Medical Consultations on World Thyroid Day

On the occasion of the World Thyroid Day on 25 May, IASO is offering 10 thyroid surgical procedures a year free of charge to individuals in financial hardship, provided they meet certain criteria. It is also offering 50 medical consultations free of charge to the first 50 people who will schedule an appointment. These are split into 25 free consultations with a thyroid surgery specialist and 25 free consultations with endocrinologists.

The action forms part of the “By your Side” Corporate Social Responsibility Program and aims to raise public awareness on the very profound impact of thyroid conditions on the quality of life of people who remain undiagnosed. The free surgical procedures will be performed by the IASO Thyroid Surgery Department Director, Mr. Stavros Tsirigotakis, and his surgical team.

Thyroid conditions affect more than 200 million people worldwide according to the American Thyroid Association (ATA). Out of these, 60% are not aware of their conditions and suffer needlessly in their daily lives.

However, as soon as the thyroid condition is diagnosed, and provided it is treatable, once the patient commences treatment, the symptoms can subside completely.

  • Contact phone number for scheduling appointments for medical consultations: (+30) 210 6185229, Mon – Fri 08:00 – 16:00

A few words about the thyroid gland

The thyroid gland produces hormones that affect every organ and cell of the human body. The thyroid hormones regulate the body’s metabolism – the rate at which the body generates energy from nutrients and oxygen – and affect crucial body functions, such as energy levels and heart rate.

The thyroid gland contributes in regulating the heart and digestive function, the body’s temperature and growth, and much more. It is known as the metabolism regulator of the body. It is very significant, as even a slight disorder may cause multiple problems to an individual.

30/4/2020 - Filoktitis: Rehabilitation Unit established for patients infected with COVID-19

 

Filoktitis promptly responded to the crucial need to provide healthcare services to patients who were infected with COVID-19.

In particular, patients who were admitted to hospitals and ICUs for extensive periods of time need additional dedicated treatments to regain their strength and stamina. The aim is for them to return to their previous physical condition and be able to function independently.

The Filoktitis scientific team consists of all the specialties necessary to offer comprehensive care to each individual patient. They follow an individualized approach, aiming to avoid any necessary complications related to the illness and to help patients recover more effectively.

The coronavirus pandemic has created the need to offer dedicated rehabilitation services, focusing on a multidisciplinary approach. The World Health Organization has developed new guidelines for supporting and managing patients who have recovered from the infection but need special care to return to their previous physical condition.

Respiratory physiotherapy and functional restoration of patients who have been infected with COVID-19 will play a crucial role in addressing the pandemic crisis overall.
