Eleni Pantehi

Director of the Department of Medical Oncology and Haematology, Dr. Nicolaou, after more than 2 decades of practice in university clinics and hospitals in Germany, came back to Cyprus in 2017 for a new start, a new challenge. At the GOC, Dr. Nicolaou heads the department which carries out a whole spectrum of treatments, i.e. chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, and palliative care, and also sees patients in the Wards and supervises emergencies cases in the Day Care Department.

Our goal and duty here is make our patients well, to offer them the best possible treatment and care, and to and to comfort them when, because of the disease, they might feel unwell or worried.

Here, at Medical Oncology, we apply all modern methods of chemotherapy, targeted therapy, hormone therapy and immunotherapy.

All chemotherapy regimens are applied to every type of solid malignancies.

Furthermore, all modern forms of polychemotherapy are widely used to treat a wide range of haematological malignancies. And at the same time, we offer palliative treatment.

In collaboration with all departments of the Center, our main concern is to offer the best possible care to each patient individually. The treatments, in line with the latest medical advances internationally, are individualized and aim to relieve and treat the patient, according to his/her particular needs at all times and circumstances.

Our staff is always ready and willing to offer support and advice to our patients. Treatments are carried out in a calm and friendly environment, with unobstructed views of the sea and the city of Limassol. Together, we gaze through the window and we see a better tomorrow for all.
