We believe that continuous medical education is an obligation for every scientist today. For our team this includes staying update with current knowledge, being certified in new methods and procedures, following the ortopaedic literature, and participating in congresses around the world. All these are performed along with everyday medical practice. Moreover, all the doctors of the TheMIS team participate in research protocols, and publish in established domestic and international journals.

The main aim of the research protocols we participate is to publish the results of our work and experience in certain procedures, and to compare our results with the ones of other scientists around the world. This will establish our work in the international orthopaedic community, and help us improve our practice for the benefit of our patients.

Some of the protocols our team is currently running are:


Smart Surg – Horizon 2020

Participation of TheMIS doctors in the Grant Agreement number: 732515
EUROPEAN COMMISSION, Communications Networks, Content and
Technology, Digital Industry, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence
