Pain Clinic

Cyprus, with its year-round sunshine, has emerged as a global hotspot and a home for thousands of immigrants from various corners of the world. Consequently, the need for advanced, modern university healthcare services on the island is more pressing than ever before.

Established by Prof. Dr. Nikolaos Zamboglou, the German Oncology Center successfully filled a gap in Cyprus’ healthcare services. As the German Medical Institute, the center has grown to include all medical specialties, raising the bar of medical care to the highest international standards. This has paved the way for many Cypriot doctors who live and work abroad to return to Cyprus. Most importantly, Cypriots no longer need to travel abroad for treatments, as they can receive the best possible medical care within their own borders.

The expansion of the German Oncology Center was the main reason I chose to move back to Limassol. This decision came after almost 22 years abroad, the last 3 years of which I worked as a Senior Anaesthesiologist and Interventional Pain Specialist at the University Hospital of Zurich in Switzerland. Working at the German Medical Institute was the opportunity that allowed me to return to my homeland, and to Limassol, where I was born and raised. As a university clinic, the GMI provides a robust platform where I can offer and develop innovative, scientifically grounded pain management services, thus contributing to the preservation and enhancement of pain management practices in Cyprus and abroad.

Pain management, also known as Algology, is an official medical subspecialty that requires practical clinical training, certification, and licensing by the medical boards of each country. The university and academic hospitals in most countries, such as in Germany, Switzerland, Canada, and the USA, require the presence of a pain clinic with specialized physicians in pain management.

Providing sufficient and reliable pain management services is highly important for both in-hospital and out-of-hospital patients. This minimises complications, enhances overall outcomes, reduces healthcare costs, and maximises patient satisfaction.

The GMI’s pain clinic is dedicated to providing only the best pain management methods, with a human-centric and empathetic approach, following the regulations of the General Health System (GHS/GESY). This is our commitment to all patients, irrespective of race, religion, nationality, or economic status.

GMI’s pain clinic serves patients in Cyprus, as well as international patients.

Welcome to our website, and we look forward to assisting you.
