Vision & mission



Reduced risk of complications

Minimally invasive heart surgery usually involves smaller incisions and less injury to the surrounding tissues, which can reduce the risk of bleeding, infection, and other complications.

Shorter hospital stays

Since recovery time is often faster in minimally invasive heart surgery, patients may spend less time in hospital and return to their normal activities sooner.

Faster recovery time

Patients may experience less pain and discomfort after minimally invasive heart surgery, allowing them to return to their normal activities sooner.

Improved aesthetic result

Minimally invasive heart surgery usually leaves smaller scars and can result in a more aesthetically pleasing result than traditional open-heart surgery.

Reduced need for blood transfusions

Minimally invasive heart surgery can result in less blood loss during the procedure, reducing the need for blood transfusions and the associated risks.

Lower total cost

Although minimally invasive heart surgery may be initially more expensive because of the specialized equipment and necessary expertise, it may ultimately be less expensive than traditional open-heart surgery due to shorter hospital stay and faster recovery time.


The team of Dimitris Kamentsidis and his experienced colleagues have helped many patients overcome serious heart diseases and improve their quality of life. We perform all types of minimally invasive or non-invasive cardiac surgery, always aiming to deliver personalized care and excellent results.

Case reports

Treatment of a 78-year-old patient with aortic valve insufficiency

The operation, led by Cardiac Surgeon Dimitrios Kamentsidis, utilized a Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery technique, employing a small 6 cm incision instead of opening the entire sternum.  Through this small incision, the problematic valve was removed and a synthetic valve was placed. 

Immediately after surgery, the patient was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit, where he remained for 48 hours and was then transferred to the ward for 3 days before leaving for home, without any problems.
Case reports

Endoscopic treatment of a heart tumor in a 62-year-old female patient

A 62-year-old patient with a tumor in the left atrium of the heart came to St. Luke’s hospital for treatment.  These types of tumors, known as myxomas, are the most common heart tumors.

The patient underwent endoscopic surgery performed by Cardiac Surgeon Dimitrios Kamentsidis and his team.  After the operation, the patient was transferred for 24 hours to the Intensive Care Unit for hemodynamic stability and then to the ward.

The patient remained to the hospital for 4 days and then returned to her daily routine.

What should I expect during my visit to Dr. Dimitris Kamentsidis?
During your visit to the doctor, you will discuss the medical problem you are facing. The doctor will ask you about your family and medical history so that he can understand exactly your situation. 

You must have the list of medicines you take on a regular basis, including over-the-counter medicines.

You must also bring copies of previous medical exams, coronary angiography results or medical history related to your medical problem. All the above will help the doctor understand the problem and, in combination with the medical exams you will have to undergo, he will make a diagnosis.

After having followed the above steps, the doctor will inform you about the next steps which may involve the prescription of medicines or a possible operation.
Should I be checked regularly?
After leaving the hospital, you should get yourself checked in one month, then in three months and finally per year.
I have already consulted a doctor; can I get a second opinion?
Undergoing a heart operation, as well as choosing the doctor who will perform it, is one of the most serious decisions you will be asked to make regarding your health. A second opinion from an experienced and qualified heart surgeon is imperative before the final decision.

Having a second opinion:
- will ensure that the proposed surgical treatment is suitable for you
- will solve any questions you may have
- will inform you about its benefits and risks.
When will I return to my normal activities?
Usually, 4 weeks after leaving the hospital.
How urgent is my surgery?
Usually in less than 5 days from the diagnosis. However, in case there are symptoms, you should undergo surgery immediately.
