ABOUT US

The Endocrine Unit of the University of Athens was founded in 1990 by the pioneer Professor Mr. D. Koutras and the Biochemist Dr. J. Mantzos and was considered to be the center for scientific research of the group of distinguished Endocrinologists of our time. At the same time, the Unit has operated to deliver a high quality medical service to the general population.

In other words, it is a reference point in the treatment of endocrinopathies, for over 27 years – nearly the entire generation – as well as in dealing with the health of hundreds of patients each year. During the last 12 years, the Scientific Coordinator of the Unit has been a world-renowned Professor, Mr. G. Chrousos.

OUR UNIT

The clinics have a patient – friendly environment that do not really reminds the traditional hospital or diagnostic center. Our philosophy is that a preventive healthcare is an everyday need and the duty of every person toward himself in order to protect his longevity and well-being. That’s why the clinic must be an attractive place with a relaxing environment: keep in mind that the positive psychology and calmness are important for the treatment of any illness.

Besides, more specialized medical examinations are carried out. For example, cortisol measurement in saliva or hair, for adrenal gland disorders detection and conducting tests by using stimulant medications, mainly for pediatric patients with growth problems. In addition, the Unit carries out significant research works, as many of research papers have been published in international and Greek journals and conference proceeding papers.
